Sunday, Sunday, Sunday: The Twenty-Eighth Sunday in Ordinary Time

13 Oct

The Life Teen Podcast is attached.  Readings for the Twenty-Eighth Sunday in Ordinary Time: Wis 7:7-11; Ps 90:12-13, 14-15, 16-17; Heb 4:12-13; Mk 10:17-30.

“What do you do when no one is looking?  Do you obey the letter of the law or the spirit of the law?  These questions takes us to a deeper question about the posture of your heart and the pursuit of your life.  Oftentimes we must remember that sin doesn’t spontaneously happen.  Sin springs forth from a mindset, from an approach, from a disposition of the mind and the heart.  The Gospel today speaks to your motivation: why do you do the things you do and why don’t you; why do you live the way you do and don’t.  This boils down to: are you Spirit led; whether you will let God be God; and whether you will let the Holy Spirit have his way inside of you.  Are you and I forsaking the eternal for the temporary?  Is our energy going into finding the loopholes or finding God?”  (Mark Hart)

This podcast is an excellent foundation for a weekly Bible study focused on the readings throughout the liturgical year.  These Bible studies can be at the parish, at a coffee shop or even on-line.
