Reflection
 
After more than three months of Lent and East-er, we return today to Sundays in Ordinary Time. We will be hearing from the Gospel of Saint Matthew for the rest of the year, with the first reading intended to prepare us in some way for the day’s Gospel. The second readings proceed through several of Saint Paul’s letters. As we set-tle down to summer living, these next few Sundays focus on what it is like to be a disciple. Let us pray to have hearts open to what the Lord is telling us.

 

“Learning To Really Trust

(José Antonio Pagola)

When our heart isn’t filled with a strong love or a firm faith, our life easily ends up at the mercy of our fears. Sometimes it’s the fear of losing prestige, security, comfort or well-being that keeps us from making decisions. We don’t dare to risk our social position, our money or our small happiness. Other times the fear of not being welcome paralyzes us. The possibility of ending up alone, without friendship or people’s love terrorizes us. We don’t want to face daily life without anyone’s close company.
Often we’re just worried about being okay. We’re afraid of being ridiculed, of confessing our true convictions, of giving testimony to our faith. We fear criticism, gossip and rejection by others. We don’t want to be categorized. Other times the fear of the future seeps in. We don’t clearly see our next step. We have no security at all. Maybe we don’t trust anyone. Facing tomorrow makes us afraid.
It’s always a temptation to seek a safe harbor in a religion that removes all our fears, uncertainties, anxieties. But it would be wrong to see faith as an easy cop-out for wishy-washy, cowardly and frightened people. Trusting faith in God, when rightly understood, doesn’t lead the believer to escape one’s responsibility in the face of problems. It doesn’t lead us to flee conflicts in order to close ourselves comfortably in isolation. On the contrary, it’s faith in God that fills our heart with power to live more generously and more bravely. It’s living trust in the Father that helps us to overcome cowardice and fear in order to more boldly and freely defend God’s Reign and God’s justice.
True faith doesn’t make people cowardly,; it makes them resolute and daring. It doesn’t close believers in on themselves, but opens them up to the problematic and conflictive sides of living from day to day. It doesn’t wrap us into laziness and comfort, but encourages us to be committed. When we listen in our heart to Jesus’ words: «Don’t be afraid», we’re not being called to evade our commitments, but are strengthened by God’s power to confront them.
 
 
 

Gospel: Matthew 10:26-33

“Jesus forewarns his disciples to be prepared for trials and suffering
Jesus said to his disciples, “Have no fear of them; for nothing is covered up that will not be uncovered, and nothing secret that will not become known. What I say to you in the dark, tell in the light; and what you hear whispered, proclaim from the housetops. Do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul; rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell. Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father. And even the hairs of your head are all counted. So do not be afraid; you are of more value than many sparrows. Everyone therefore who acknowledges me before others, I also will acknowledge before my Father in heaven; but whoever denies me before others, I also will deny before my Father in heaven.”
