Reflection for the 14th Sunday in Ordinary Time – July 4, 2021

By Juanita Harding, Notre Dame Associate

A reading from the Book of the Prophet Ezekiel 2:2-5

The readings today are all about spreading the Word of God.

The Lord spoke to Ezekiel and His Spirit entered them. He told Ezekiel he was to go to the Israelites, a group that had rebelled against the Lord in the past. Ezekiel was to say to the Israelites, “Thus says the Lord GOD!”  And whether they heeded or resisted, they shall know that a prophet has been among them.

Where is God sending us to spread His word? Let us pray to identify opportunities share our faith with others.

The Spirit is in us also!
