THIRTEENTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME C Lectionary #99
Service to God and ministry in Jesus’ name must be passed on to a new generation, but those who are called to such ministry will not necessarily have an easy time of it.

1 Kings 19:16b, 19–21. Following God’s instructions, Elijah passes his prophetic ministry to Elisha. Recognizing how demanding this call will be, Elisha performs actions that make it impossible for him ever to return to his home.

Psalm of the Day: Ps (15) 16
This song of trust begins with an affirmation of faith in YHWH alone, followed by an expression of confidence in God.

Galatians 5:1, 13–18. A reflection on the meaning of Christian freedom. Christians have been set free to love as Christ loved us. If you're not sure how to do this, trust in the Spirit working in you.

Luke 9:51–62. This text follows several examples of how complete our response must be to the call of Jesus. Through the use of exaggerated examples, Jesus makes it clear that our commitment must be wholehearted.
