GETTING BEYOND, NOT ABOVE, ONESELF
22nd Sunday in Ordinary Time -Year C August 28, 2016
[fa class=”fa-book fa-2x teal”] Readings: Sir 3:17-18,20,28-29 / Heb 12:18-19,22-24a / Lk 14:1,7-14[fa class=”fa-quote-left fa-2x teal”] Today is a Sunday of highs and lows.

The letter to the Hebrews takes as a given our having “approached Mount Zion and the city of the living God.” In and through Jesus, “the mediator of a new covenant,” we have received the singular grace of being in the presence of the “ecclesia” – the gathering of “countless angels in heaven” (2nd reading).
