For 17 July 2007, Tuesday of 15th week in Ordinary Time, based on Matthew 11:20-24
Jesus began to reproach the cities in which most of his deeds of power had been done, because they did not repent. â€œWoe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! For if the deeds of power done in you had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes. But I tell you, on the day of judgment it will be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon than for you. And you, Capernaum, will you be exalted to heaven? No, you will be brought down to Hades. For if the deeds of power done in you had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day. But I tell you that on the day of judgment it will be more tolerable for the land of Sodom than for you.â€

I listened to your preaching before leading our meditation/Lectio group early this morning, in Chapel Hill, NC. Your reflections helped our understanding of this challenging passage and shape our prayers. Faith and awareness of miracles in day to day moments were gifts to carry thru the day. With a grateful heart, Mary Jean
