Season after Pentecost | 15th Sunday in Ordinary Time (Year C)
Amos 7:7-17; Psalm 82; (Deuteronomy 30:9-14; Psalm 25:1-10;) Colossians 1:1-14; Luke 10:25-37
Amos is a difficult prophet to preach because he is so little interested in the possibility that the fate of the people may improve if they return to God. Yet the encounter between the prophet and Amaziah the priest in today’s lesson is thrilling, even cinematic.
