Reflection 8th September 2019

A Reflection for the Twenty-Third Sunday in Ordinary Time

Lk: 14: 25-33 ( http://www.usccb.org/bible/readings/090819.cfm )

In our gospel reading today Jesus reminds us of what is required to be a true disciple.

We have a choice of true discipleship by how we react to people as we live our own lives.

We must dedicate our lives to accepting our crosses with patience and forbearance as we journey.

Jesus needs dedicated people to spread his gospel message by rejecting the things of this world and concentrating on our true call as people of faith. 

As St. Luke tells us “anyone who does not carry his cross and follow me cannot be my disciple”

He doesn’t say that it will be easy but that is the challenge of being a true disciple.
