Preparing for Sunday
Find the lessons appointed for Sunday - here >

Sunday's readings ask us to demonstrate our Christian beliefs through appropriate actions. Proverbs (SC) invites us to begin the search for Wisdom. In Isaiah (GR), God’s servant remains obedient in the face of suffering and remains confident of God’s guidance and support. James reminds us of the destructive power of even a few evil words. In the gospel, after allowing himself to be identified as the Messiah, Jesus points out that sharing in his mission means embracing a life of sacrifice.
