Twenty Ninth Week Ordinary Time

Isaiah 45:1,4-6, Ps. 96, 1 Thess.1:1-5,
Matthew 22:15-21


How hard it is to find a balance in life that does justice to all our concerns. When I feel I am robbing Peter to pay Paul it is time to take stock. Tearing myself apart in keeping commitments to my job, family and parish alive is not how life is meant to be. The Kingdom of God is not like a deposit of love that has to be apportioned. Continuing Christ’s mission is not about a balancing act. It is about love that grows, crosses boundaries and feels no limit.
