14th Sunday in the Season of the Year (C)

Having just moved from Nowra to Fairy Meadow parish, I can see why Jesus instructs his disciples not to move from house to house: for any of you who have moved recently, you will know what a pain it is to pack and move. In this Gospel (from Luke 10) we are given deep insights into the wider mission – not just of the apostles or leaders of the Church – but of the whole community to the world at large. Let us join Jesus as he continues his journey to Jerusalem and be consoled by the beautiful and lyrical image given from Isaiah 66 of a mother tenderly caring for her child.
