July 7, 2019: Fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time
Preaching for the Fourteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time, Emily Rauer Davis offers a reflection on finding strength, comfort, and hope in God our Mother:
"In spite of the hardships we face, or creeping feelings of despair, we are invited to recall the love of God as Mother: nurturing us, consoling us, and reassuring us of our place in the world. We are called to be a people of hope as we go about our work as disciples in our broken world, with God’s promise of abundant, gratuitous love as our foundation."
Emily Rauer Davis is Assistant Chaplain and Director of Domestic Immersions at the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, MA. A 1999 graduate of Holy Cross, she spent a year with the Jesuit Volunteer Corps in Fresno, CA before receiving her Master of Divinity degree at Weston Jesuit School of Theology.
