In our ordinary, daily communication with others we experience misunderstanding – perhaps even more so in the world of social media where we can read what someone else says but we cannot look at their body language, the non-verbal communication they offer. Misunderstanding can easily become rejection and, in the end, cause conflict.

All three texts this weekend remind us that living the Christian faith, being baptised members of the Christian community, sent on mission, will not always be easy. Ezekiel, Paul and Jesus faced tough times and rejection. Their message was misunderstood, distorted and, at times, rejected.

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

You can find the texts that this reflection is based on in your bible, or simply just hover your mouse over the following references and the texts will also appear:

Ezekiel 2:2-5; Psalm 122; 2 Corinthians 12:7-10; & Mark 6:1-6
