Gospel for Sunday 20 in Ordinary Time:
If you wish, play the video of the reading from St Luke’s Gospel or read it yourself.
Jesus said to the crowd: “I came to bring fire to the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled! I have a baptism with which to be baptized, and what stress I am under until it is completed! Do you think that I have come to bring peace to the earth? No, I tell you, but rather division! From now on five in one household will be divided, three against two and two against three; they will be divided:
father against son
and son against father,
mother against daughter
and daughter against mother,
mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law
and daughter-in-law against mother-in-law.”
Whether you have read or heard it, you might like to acclaim the Word, saying:
This is the Gospel of the Lord – Praise to you Lord Jesus Christ.
If you wish to hear a homily on this text, mine is available on the site for listening to at this point. There are many other sites which provide video homilies for the day.
