Lose life in order to win it in Christ

Readings: Jer 20,7-9; Ps 63,2.3-; Rom 12,1-2; Mt 16, 21-27

The 22nd Sunday in Ordinary Time A invites us to reflect about discipleship as a journey that entails self-denial and carrying of one’s own cross in order to follow Jesus. On this journey the disciple acquires a new mentality which is able to see losses as gains. Let us allow ourselves be attracted to Jesus and to His way!

However, I strongly believe that we are spiritually united with one another.
