Good evening, Dragons!

Today's Gospel


In today's gospel, Jesus answers a question from some Sadducees about the resurrection of the dead.


Luke 20:27-38

Thirty-second Sunday in Ordinary Time


Family Connection

The Sadducees are described in this Gospel as opponents to the belief in resurrection. Jesus argues to show that there is resurrection. In this discourse Jesus shows the limits of our imaginations when it comes to eternal life. The Sadducees argued against resurrection because of the limits of earthly existence. Jesus proposes that the possibilities of resurrected life are beyond our imaginations. Jesus' conclusion suggests something else as well: To spend time worrying about resurrected life is to miss the point. The point is eternal relationship with God is possible, for God is the God of the living, “. . . for to him all are alive.” (Citation)

Today's gospel presents many lessons for our families--beliefs on death--how our beliefs in Jesus is far beyond anything we can imagine. Each week take a look here for some incredible family lessons for the weekly Gospel.

Blessings,

Ms. Salazar | Principal
