Weekly Message:

July 15, 2018
          Amos' concern was focused on the message and the one who gave him the message. He was not concerned whether or not the people were impressed with him as an individual or even whether or not they wanted to hear what God told him to proclaim.
          We see the exact same action taking place in the Gospel reading for this Sunday. Jesus sends his disciples out to proclaim the coming of the kingdom of God. These disciples were every day people. Nothing special about them. Jesus tells them to carry little luggage and to just proclaim the word and then move on. If people accept the word great, if they don't, leave quickly, but bring the word of God to the next village.
         The truth is not dependent on the people to whom it is addressed. The truth is dependent on the fidelity of the proclaimer of the message received by God. There was a time in history that two thirds of the Church questioned the divinity of Jesus Christ. That was the time of the Arian heresy. Two thirds of the church! The numbers still didn't make the Arians correct. The truth always wins. The Arians are forgotten, buried in history and the Church lives on believing in the divinity of Christ.
Faced with the temptations that we have, sometimes we want to keep quiet, not make waves and just let things slide. Like Amos, we can all claim: We don't need this. Let the priests talk about morals and attempt to practice them. I'm just an everyday person. But then we read scripture. We read the readings for this Sunday. The readings today tell us that we do not have the right to walk away from our responsibilities to the Truth. We have to stand for the truth of the Lord, whether it is popular or not, whether it is convenient or not. We have all received the mandate of Jesus to go out and proclaim his Word. Today we pray for the courage to proclaim the truth at work, in our neighborhoods and in our families.
