Nineteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

1Kings 19:9, 11-13; Ps 85; Romans 9:1-5 Matthew 14: 22-33

God’s gifts.

Powerful words from Paul. His anguish over his people’s rejection of Jesus as the Messiah is palpable, made more painful by their privileged positions in God’s eyes. His words echo down the ages, yet have a familiar ring to them. Throughout the world today there are still many people who reject God, his Son and his gifts. But God never gives up on his children, nor does he ever stop giving even when we least deserve it. Lord, we thank you for all your blessings and pray that all people of all nations will come to know you.
