Sixteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

This week the readings come from Genesis 18:1-10a, Psalm 15, Paul’s letter to the Colossians 1:24-28, and Luke’s Gospel 10:38-42.

The major point this week in Hospitality, we see it in Genesis with Abraham welcoming three guest and giving them something to eat and drink as well as in the Gospel where we hear about Mary and Martha. These are perfect role models for us all as we are to be welcoming to all who cross our paths. It’s more than just offering them something to eat but as Jesus tells Martha that Mary has chosen the better by sitting at his feet. It is more about the companionship and spending time with other people, for who know what will happen like when the three guest leave they say that Sarah will bear a child. It isn’t that difficult as we don’t need to stress over a three course meal to impress someone all we really need to do is share some time with others. This is something that doesn’t happen much today as we are so connected to the digital world and some would gladly be interacting with phones instead of real people. We need to be able to put our phones down and talk with one another, it isn’t as difficult as we make it out to be there isn’t a guide or a checklist just be yourself and find out who your neighbors are.
