Life is much more important than food, and the body much more important than clothes. Instead, be concerned with His Kingdom, and He will provide you with these things.
Luke 12:23,31

Sunday Gospel Message - 14th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Being a prophet was not easy. In fact, most
prophets tried to get out of their call. The Lord told
Ezekiel that the people were “hard of face and obstinate
of heart.” He, however, was to go and proclaim the
truth; the results were up to God. Jesus Himself
experienced a difficult time as He preached in His own
native place. Some of the obstacles were lack of faith;
others were false teaching; others were preconceived
ideas of what the Lord was going to do; still others
were what they were used to doing. Jesus came to
bring the truth and to teach about a special relationship
with His Father. Our response is to listen to the Lord
and to His Spouse, the Church. That is how Jesus
established His kingdom.
