Readings for the Week
June 28 - July 5, 2020
Readings for Sunday, June 28:
2 Kgs 4:8-11, 14-16a: A woman in Shunem recognizedElisha as a holy man. This woman and her husband
fixed a guest room for Elisha whenever he was passing by. Gehazi confided to Elisha that the wife was barren,
whereupon Elisha promised that within a year she would have a son.
Rom 6:3-4, 8-11: Baptized into Christ through the waters of baptism, we rise to a new life of grace in Jesus
who was buried and came back to life. In the same way we who were dead to sin become alive for God in Jesus.
Mt 10:37-42: To follow Jesus we must be ready to give of ourselves totally.
Today's Message: If we have died with Christ, we believe we shall also live with Him. He invites us to take up
our cross and follow Him, and to respond to those who are in need, as did the woman who extended hospitality
to Elisha, the prophet. Blessed is she who walked in the countenance of the Lord.
