• Words, Phrases
• To the point

• First Two Readings


The Word Engaged

Kavanaugh, S. J.

Blessed Assurance

We hoard a stash of securities. Maybe they will be our insurance policy, our steadfast guards and providers. Worse, even ordinary journeys stir fears of insecurity. Any long walk, to say nothing of the walk of a lifetime, calls for baggage.


Historical Cultural Context

John J. Pilch

Luke's Jesus & the Samaritans

In the peasant world of the Middle East there are no free gifts. Every gift comes with a string attached. A common proverb says: “Don’t thank me: you will repay me.”


Thoughts from the
Early Church

Augustine of Hippo

The reapers were sent out, wielding the Gospel as their sickle. They were to greet no one on the road, which meant they were to have no aim or activity apart from proclaiming the Good News in a spirit of brotherly love.


Preparing for Sunday

Gillick, S. J.

Scripture In Depth

Reginald H. Fuller

The Christian sees a personal religious experience
as part of the experience of the entire body,
while the experience of the entire body is reflected
in the experience
of the individual.
