Reflection for the 17th in Sunday in Ordinary Time – Year A

How do you make decisions? Mature adults are expected to make good decisions. The Scriptures this week give us some guidance to make good choices. Fr Russell Pollitt SJ offers 3 challenges for us to reflect on in the week ahead – he calls it the “Triple E” challenge: i) What criteria do I used to choose? ii) What are my gifts? iii) Where are my choices leading me to?

Join Fr Russell as he reflects on the readings for the 17th Sunday in Ordinary Time.

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.

1 Kings 3:5,7-12; Psalm 118; Romans 8:28-30 & Matthew 13:44-52.
