07-02-17 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

July 2, 2017
(13th Sunday Ordinary Time A)
Jesus said, “Whoever receives you receives me, and whoever receives me receives the one who sent me.”  Mt_10:37-42

Are we selective in who we receive, beloved?  Then, we might wonder, how many times are we rejecting Jesus?

One day Elisha came to Shunem, where there was a woman of influence, who urged him to dine with her. . . .

Elisha asked, “Can something be done for her?” His servant Gehazi answered, “Yes!  She has no son, and her husband is getting on in years.”  Elisha said, “Call her.”  When the woman had been called and stood at the door, Elisha promised, “This time next year you will be fondling a baby son.”  2_Kgs_4:8-11,14-16a

We seem to have many, many miraculous stories of conception and birth throughout the Bible, all the way back to Abraham and Sarah.  Today’s story shows Elisha’s gratitude for the hospitality given him by a very generous woman who recognized and received him as a Holy Man of God.

Jesus said, “Whoever receives a prophet because he is a prophet
will receive a prophet’s reward,” Mt_10:37-42

Just makes us think, beloved. Who will that next prophet be, that enters into my life?  And will I be as receptive as this ‘influential woman?’
