Season after Pentecost | 12th Sunday in Ordinary Time (Year A)
Genesis 21:8-21; Psalm 86:1-10, 16-17; (Jeremiah 20:7-13; Psalm 69:7-10, [11-15], 16-18;) Romans 6:1b-11; Matthew 10:24-39

If Paul is right, we are living fantasy lives. Anytime we live as though power conquers and wealth protects, we live a fantasy. Anytime we live like death wins, we live a fantasy. Paul tells us about a future that has already happened—yet we live not only like it hasn’t happened yet but like we don’t think it ever really will.
