THIRTY-SECOND SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME C Lectionary #156
“Jesus Christ is the first born of the dead,” we sing. While we believe that life does not end with death, we have trouble imaging what life beyond death might be like. Jesus suggests that such speculation is useless: The faithful who die “are the children of God because they are the ones who will rise.”

2 Maccabees 7:1-2, 9-14. Jewish thought before the time of Jesus believed in a reward for the faithful beyond death.

Psalm of the Day: Ps (16) 17. In this individual lament, the psalmist prays for God's help against enemies, hoping for vindication. Christians use the imagery at the end of today’s verses as a way of talking about the risen life: “On waking I shall be content in your presence.”

Suggested Common Psalm
Ps 121 (122): Let Us Go Rejoicing (See suggestions for Christ the King)

2 Thessalonians 2:16–3:5. Paul encourages the community to trust in God’s faithful presence that will stay with them through all difficulties.

Luke 20:27-38. One of the Sadducees makes fun of belief in the resurrection by inventing an impossible scenario. Jesus points out that we change when we go through death into resurrection, and we don't know what the risen life is like.
