 29th Sunday in Ordinary Time

The liturgy of Sunday the 29th in Ordinary Time invites us to reflect on how we must balance the relationship between the realities of God and the realities of the world. It tells us that God is our priority and that it is to Him that we must subordinate our entire existence; but it also warns us that God calls us to an effective commitment in building the world.

The first reading suggests that God is the true Lord of history and that it is He who guides the path of His People towards happiness and full fulfillment. The men who act and intervene in history are only the instruments that God uses to carry out his plans of salvation.

The second reading presents us with the example of a Christian community that has put God at the center of its path and that, despite the difficulties, has courageously committed itself to the values ​​and plans of God. Chosen by God to be his witness in the middle of the world, she lives anchored in active faith, active charity and unwavering hope.

The Gospel teaches that man, without ceasing to fulfill his obligations towards the community in which he is inserted, belongs to God and must surrender his entire existence into his hands. Everything else must be relativized, including submission to political power.
