The First Mourning, William-Adolphe Bouguereau, 1888, Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes, Argentina
Twelfth Sunday of Ordinary Time
June 21, 2020
From this Sunday to September 13, we will be reading from the letter of St. Paul to the Romans at Mass. We will take time each week to examine these sections, so I ask that you read the introductory material from last week if you have not done so.
Let us begin with the conclusion “The surest way to end with God is to begin with Him.” Our focus for these months will be on what God has done for us in Jesus. Today’s passage is a perfect example of why it is necessary to keep this in mind. There are temptations to wander.
