November 3, 2019: Reflection for the Thirty-first Sunday of Ordinary Time

by Sr. Dorothy Rolf, ND

The Gospel message for the past Sunday conjures up within one some questions about how we look for Jesus and why. Sometimes one may feel like Zacchaeus, trying to see Jesus from a distance because one isn’t worthy to come closer.

Maybe our lack of concern for another, our selfish ways, no time for prayer etc. can keep us at a distance and prevent us from revealing oneself.

Somehow Jesus always finds us and wants to come to our hearts. We share our burdens and what do we promise?
