“Sunday in a TweetShell” for the 13th Sunday of Ordinary Time (Year A) [July 2, 2023] – Mt 10:37-42
Above is the image of the tweet for my “Sunday in a TweetShell: Sunday’s Gospel Message and Us in 280 or Less” I tweeted and shared on my FB for today’s Gospel reading for the 13th Sunday of Ordinary Time (Year A) [July 2, 2023].
Jesus said to his apostles:
“Whoever loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me,
and whoever loves son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me;
and whoever does not take up his cross
and follow after me is not worthy of me.
Whoever finds his life will lose it,
and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.
“Whoever receives you receives me,
and whoever receives me receives the one who sent me.
Whoever receives a prophet because he is a prophet
will receive a prophet’s reward,
and whoever receives a righteous man
because he is a righteous man
will receive a righteous man’s reward.
And whoever gives only a cup of cold water
to one of these little ones to drink
because the little one is a disciple—
amen, I say to you, he will surely not lose his reward.”
