With the help of the Holy Spirit, we live our entire life as an offer of homage and praise to God.

22nd Sunday of the Year (A)

Jer. 20: 7-9; Psalm 62; Rom. 12: 1-2; Mt. 16: 21-27

Read: You are called to discern what is God’s will, what is good, what is pleasing to Him, what is the truth. (Rom. 12,1).

Reflect: God’s will means that we seek and do what is good, what is perfect, what is pleasing. With the help of the Holy Spirit, we live our entire life as an offer of homage and praise to God. This is the aim of our life. We achieve this by, before anything else, seeking to do God’s will … that we walk the way of the complete love that Jesus walked before us, that demands from us also deprivation and sacrifices: “If anybody wishes to follow me, he needs to deny himself, carry his cross and walk behind me “ (Mt. 16,24),

Pray: We are aware that whenever we go against the will of God we are sinning. Let us seek to do good so that thereby we will truly praise God.

Act: Think about the difference between discerning truly what is God’s will, and choosing what suits you.
