Devotional

For Your Reflection:

10th Sunday after Pentecost
The word of God is a refining fire.  Jesus is the great divide in human history.  He invites our undivided attention and devotion.  Today, in the assembly, we are surrounded by “so great a cloud of witnesses.”  In the word  and in the holy communion we are invited yet again to look to Jesus, “the pioneer and perfecter of our faith.”
