'TWENTY-SEVENTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME Lectionary #141
In the light of misuse of authority and of wealth (see previous two Sundays), what's a Christian to do? Three things: Trust in God, trust the vision, and get to work.

Habakkuk 1:2-3; 2:2-4. In the midst of horrific times (war, famine), the prophet calls on God to take immediate action. God's response is that the divine plan is working, “presses on to fulfillment, and will not disappoint.”

Psalm of the Day: Ps (94) 95. The past is prologue. This hymn hails God as creator and liberator; God's past deeds are a promise of what will come. But we have to be faithful and trust in God's promise.

2 Timothy 1:6-8, 13-14. We are the hands God uses to bring justice, peace, and mercy to the world. So “stir into flame the gift of God that you have.”

Luke 17:5-10. We move forward in faith, knowing that we do only what we have been called to do. The rest belongs to God.
