P
BAPTISM OF THE LORD

JULY 19, 2015 – XVI SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME

The first and second readings for today seem to play on a number of contrasting images. The oracle of Jeremiah contrasts false leaders with that righteous shoot who shall govern wisely; bad shepherds with the good shepherd who is God; the present time of dispersion and distress with the coming days of salvation. His message is a word of hope for exiled Israel. The excerpt from Ephesians invites Gentile Christians to contrast their prior status with their present life in Christ. They who were once far off have been brought very near. The dividing wall that separated Jew and Gentile has given way; there is now, in place of the two, one new humanity with one route of access to the Father. The message is a word of hope for Jews and Gentiles estranged from God and from one another. Both readings proclaim God's intention to gather the sheep so that there will be one flock, one shepherd (cf. Jn 10:16). That is the mission of Jesus in today's Gospel. The sight of the vast crowd, like sheep without a shepherd, fills him with compassion. "And he began to teach them."
