“Radical transformation” and “revolutionary” are all words we have heard in the political arena in the last few months.

The Scriptures this weekend are all radical, revolutionary and transformative. We are so bound by our own context that at times we do not realise the radical, revolutionary and transformative nature of the sacred texts we listen to week after week.

This week are taught three lessons: that we are called to ensure that the rights and dignity of women are upheld; that we are called to be creators and messengers of hope and that God heals in and through a personal encounter with Jesus – not through “quick-fix” prayers.

Join Fr Russell Pollitt SJ as he reflects on the readings for the Scriptures for the Thirteenth Sunday of the Year.
