SIXTEENTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME C Lectionary #108
What does hospitality demand of us?

Genesis 18:1–10a. Hospitality among desert nomads requires, even today, that strangers be welcomed and made comfortable. That part of the story would have been expected. The comment by one of the strangers would not have been expected.

Psalm of the Day: Ps (14) 15
This “entrance liturgy” prepares someone to come into the Temple to worship. The one worthy of offering worship is the one who does justice.

Suggested Common Psalm
Ps 34: Taste and See

Colossians 1:24–28. Having established his faith credentials (see last week), Paul presents himself as a proper apostle. He has suffered for the faith, especially for his unique addition to the message: The message is not only for Jews, it is also for Gentiles “that we may present everyone perfect in Christ.”

Luke 10:38–42. Was either of the sisters inhospitable to Jesus, or did they simply offer different forms of hospitality? If that was the case, why did Jesus say what he did to Martha?
