15th Sunday in Ordinary Time

July 16, 2012

CALLED TO TRANSFORMATIVE ACTION

This is one of the great Gospels in our tradition for it tells us what we are supposed to do and how we are to do it. For just as Jesus calls and send the 12, so does Jesus call and send each of us, for we are descendants of the them.

But I wonder how many of you can imagine being sent out as Jesus sends the twelve?

It almost seems like a bit of an initiation ritual and perhaps it was. Not only are the apostles being formed in the type of work they are to do: Cure the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, and drive out demons; but they are also learning how to do it – to rely, not on their own resources, but on those provided by God through others.
