Twelfth Sunday of Ordinary Time – Year C

In today’s gospel, Jesus is performing a kind of “reality check”—something good for all of us to do from time to time. It had been almost three years now that he had been traveling around the country, talking to the people about God’s love for them. And he brought that love to them in his own person by showing compassion for those who were suffering, by healing those who were hurting, by giving nourishment to those who were hungry, and by giving hope to those who felt there was little to live for.
