Here are some of the themes that surface in the readings for the 14th Sunday of the Year.

1st Reading – Ezekiel 2:2-5

  • Ezekiel is sent by God as a prophet to a people who have rebelled in the past.
  • Whether they heed or resist, they will know that a prophet has been sent among them.

Psalm – 123: 1-4

  • “Our eyes are fixed on the Lord, pleading for his mercy.”
  • The Psalmist cries out to God on behalf of the people who have experienced mockery and contempt.

2nd Reading – 2nd Corinthians 12:7-10

  • Paul acknowledges his weaknesses as an opportunity to rely on Christ.
  • In Christ we have the strength we need to face the hardships and persecutions of this world.

Gospel – Mark 6:1-6

  • Jesus is rejected in Nazareth as the people take offense at him.
  • Christ is amazed at their lack of faith, and does no mighty deeds there.
