'THIRTIETH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME C Lectionary #150
The Lord hears the cry of the poor: This truth should give us cause to reflect on our own care for the poor, because the message today is not necessarily good news for those who are well off.

Sirach 35:12-14, 16-18. “The Lord is a God of justice.” What does justice look like today? Especially in relationship to the poor, the oppressed, and the abandoned?

Psalm of the Day: Ps (33) 34. This is the song of an individual giving thanks that God has heard the person’s prayer.

Suggested Common Psalm
Ps (129) 130: With the Lord There Is Mercy

2 Timothy 4:6-8, 16-18. This passage is presented as St. Paul’s final testament: He looks forward to receiving the “crown of righteousness” because he has remained faithful in imitation of God’s fidelity.

Like 18:9-14. Our own sense of self and our deep need for God is important in our relationship to God and in our practice of the Christian way of life.
