26th Sunday of Ordinary Time, Cycle A

Good News Inspiration for Daily Life

26th Sunday Bulletin Insert for September 27, 2020.

Description: Reflection for the 26th Sunday of Ordinary Time points out that the Gospel story (Matthew 21:28-32) was meant to shock people who think they’re okay spiritually but do not honestly examine how well they do the Father’s will. Jesus said that tax collectors and prostitutes (professions considered to be the most contemptible and unholy) were entering the kingdom of God ahead of religious experts!

Knowing the right answer and actually DOing the right answer is the dividing line between heaven and hell. God doesn’t want right answers; he wants righteous actions. God doesn’t want dutiful compliance to Church teachings; he wants obedience motivated by love and an enthusiastic attitude of serving in the mission of the Church.

Question for personal reflection: What opportunities to serve God in your parish or out in the community have you said “no” to? Spend some time praying to understand whether or not that was an invitation from Christ himself.
