Good News Inspiration for Daily Life
Bulletin Insert for September 6, 2020.
Description: Reflection for the 23rd Sunday of Ordinary Time shows how all readings speak of the need to stand up for what is holy and right and true in a way that invites others to turn away from sin. If we don’t, we indirectly play a part in the sins he or she commits, and we will be held accountable (see the first reading). If we do take a stand against sin but without compassion and mercy and unconditional love, that too is a sin (the second reading).
Once we’ve shared the truth, even if the sinner does not change, we’re free of any guilt. But we must not stop trying, and so we take one or two others with us in a stronger effort to help the sinner understand and repent.
Ideas for use: Bulletin insert for the 23rd Sunday of Ordinary Time, Bible Study groups, adult faith formation, SCCs, RCIA, etc.
