Twentieth Sunday of Ordinary Time
August 14, 2022
Gospel: Luke 12:49-53
In this Gospel, fire is an image referring to divine judgment. Jesus is clearly stating that he has come to judge the people.
His own faithfulness to this task led to his great anguish and ultimately to his passion and death.
So will we his faithful disciples be treated.
Jesus’ intent here is not primarily to condemn people, but to challenge them to right living according to the covenant established with God.
So must this be our intent.
