22nd Sunday after Pentecost 2018
In the Epistle for the Twenty-second Sunday after Pentecost St. Paul gives us consoling words from his place of imprisonment. God will see the good work He has begun in us reach its perfection. On our part we need to pray for final perseverance. In the Gospel Christ is not making a political statement as much as one of prioritizing our concerns – starting with God in the first place. This hierarchy of values will guide us in our daily lives and especially assist us when voting.
