20th Sunday Ord C
A Pilgrim's Daily Prayer
Called through the Word to the everlasting journey in the Spirit
from nothingness to union with the One who is the Beginning and the End
Marc Chagall, Jeremiah in the Pit, Franklin Bowles Galleries, New York, 1956
Twentieth Sunday in Ordinary Time C: Faithful to the Word
Readings for Mass
So they took Jeremiah and threw him into the cistern of Malchiah, the king’s son, which was in the court of the guard, letting Jeremiah down by ropes. Now there was no water in the cistern, but only mud, and Jeremiah sank in the mud (NRSV, Jeremiah 38:6).
Let us pray.
Father, as Jeremiah and your prophets listened so carefully to your Word spoken in every moment to all and were faithful to it regardless of cost, may we, inspired by their actions, follow their example in attentiveness and courage, likewise being faithful in all that we do.
Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
