Liturgy Live – Tools for the Mission – 3rd Sunday in Ordinary Time

This week Fr Ian and Alanna discuss the connections within the Sunday readings. Ezra was a leader in the spiritual revival of Jerusalem after the time of Exile, Nehemiah was the governmental leader who came in and built up the protections for the people. Ezra was standing in front of the Water Gate, Christ is the gate and he opens to the water of eternal life. St Paul in the second reading exhorts us to not despair in our gifts but that they are so important and also should not be lorded over people. We talk about how important spiritual friendships are and the ability to share good news and accomplishments with them as well as our sufferings. The Mission statement by Christ in Luke wraps these readings up nicely with the direction our gifts should be worked towards. The mission above all the other missions. The question we should ask ourselves, are we aligning ourselves under this mission?
