For Your Life: Scott Hahn Reflects on the 

Twenty-second Sunday in Ordinary Time

Posted by Dr. Scott Hahn on 08.29.14



Readings:

Jeremiah 20:7-9

Psalm 63:2-6, 8-9

Romans 12:1-2

Matthew 16:21-27

Today’s First Reading catches the prophet Jeremiah in a moment of weakness. His intimate lamentation contains some of the strongest language of doubt found in the Bible. Following God’s call, he feels abandoned. Preaching His Word has brought him only derision and reproach.

Psalm 67:2-3, 5, 6, 8

Romans 11:13-15, 29-32

Readings: 

1 Kings 19:9, 11-13 

Psalm 85:9-14 

Romans 9:1-5

Matthew 14:22-33


How do we find God in the storms and struggles of our lives, in the trials we encounter in trying to do His will?
