Readings for Sunday, August 27 / 21st Sunday of Ordinary Time: Isaiah 22:19-23 | Psalm 138 | Romans 11:33-36 | Matthew 16:13-20
Each week we hear the readings proclaimed and it can be easy to zone out or be distracted by many other things going on in our minds. The readings, however, are not to be missed because they are the voice of God speaking to us. When we pray we long to hear a response - in the Scriptures we find it. Let us pray for open hearts and open ears, that when the Lord speaks we can hear and respond.
