Gospel Reflection for August 11, 2013, 19th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Jesus said, “From those to whom much has been given, much will be required; from those to whom much is committed, how much greater the demand!”

Luke 12.48

Luke admonishes those who are leaders in the Christian community, those who have been entrusted with the care of “the little ones.”  Their faith is to be sturdy and their patience unwavering patience as the community awaits Jesus coming again in glory.  It is those who encourage the faithful not to lose heart, not to become consumed with the dalliances of daily life, not to “eat, drink, and get drunk.”  The task of remaining awake and alert belongs to every Christian, but to the leaders belongs the ministry of keeping us together in hope.

Think about a time of having to reassess your Christian hopes.
