22nd Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year B

Show Notes This weekend we celebrate the 22nd Sunday of Ordinary Time, cycle B.  I love that the theme for today is centered around being true disciples of Christ in our lives, and not just following a set of rules. The Psalm for today, from chapter 15, says: "The one who does justice will live in the presence of the LORD." As we continue to explore the theme of living justly in the presence of the Lord, and the need to allow our hearts to be guided by the author of truth, I find the Gospel acclamation fitting.  Taken from James chapter 1, verse 18, it reads: "The Father willed to give us birth by the word of truth that we may be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures." The Communion Antiphon for today, taken from Psalm chapter 31, verse 20, has a different approach to the same theme - that God has good things planned for those who fear and revere the Lord: "How great is the goodness, Lord, that you keep for those who fear you."
