Sept. 7, 2014 - 23rd Sunday in Ordinary Time

Owning Our Sins Ezek 33:7-9 I have appointed you watchman for the house of Israel. Psalm 95 If today you hear his voice, harden not

your hearts.

Rom 13:8-10 Love your neighbor as yourself. Matt 18:15-20 “If your brother sins against you …”

Matt 18:15 - 20 “If your brother sins against you …” Jesus assures us that “where

Jesus assures us that “where two or three are gathered to-

gether in my name, there am I

in the midst of them.”

Jesus is constantly preaching amid crowds of people. Large crowds mean money can be made. For many passers-by,

Jesus was soon overwhelmed

by the clamoring world. The money-makers were

out, selling wares and souvenirs. Surely there were also street performers hoping to draw donations for their acts. Today we have the same bustle:

stores, street vendors, even living statues on the

city sidewalks, people who paint their skin bronze

or silver and pose motionless to wow pedestrians and earn change. In all of this we are challenged to find Jesus, who

remains in our midst — perhaps even hidden be- hind the gold paint — joining us like the stranger on

the road to Emmaus.

-- Dc. Dick Folger
