AN INTRODUCTION TO THIS WEEKEND'S LITURGY OF THE WORD

Sunday, February 17th
It's time to choose sides.  The selections from Jeremiah, Psalms, and Luke each describe the favorable consequences for one group of people and the unfavorable consequences for the opposite group.  Jeremiah distinguishes between those who place their trust in God and those who place their trust in others.  In Luke's Gospel, Jesus reassures those who are suffering, while warning those who are prospering.  It is sobering.  Let Saint Paul's proclamation of Christ's resurrection be of comfort to all of us.
Sunday's Readings
Jeremiah 17:5-8
Psalm 1
1 Cor 15:12, 16-20
Luke 6:17, 20-26
