Geeky Catholic Sunday: The Sixth Sunday in Ordinary Time 2019

Gospel Reading: Luke 6:17,20-26

Highlight: "Blessed are you who are now hungry, for you will be satisfied."

Reflection: There are a couple of levels on which we can take this verse. On the one hand, Jesus was talking to people who were physically hungry. But more broadly, he was talking about all of the desires we experience in this life. Our faith tells us that these desires are, at their core, supposed to lead us towards heaven. The desires are not bad, as long as they are ordered properly. Once we stop trying to satisfy our infinite desires with the finite things of this world, we realize that only God has what we're looking for.

Geeky Quote: "Organize a press conference. I want a press conference and I want an American cheeseburger. Hogan, drive. Cheeseburger first." - Tony Stark, Iron Man

Prayer: God, only you can satisfy my deepest longings. Don't let me get lost chasing after money and pleasure, but lead me to yourself. Amen.
