The Fourth Sunday of Trinity
This week’s gospel reading is Matthew 11:16-19, 25 to end.  Jesus notes that both he and John the Baptist failed to meet people’s expectations. Jesus thanks God that the point of his ministry has been revealed to the simple rather than the wise, and calls on people to learn how to live from him.

Matthews reflection

The Third Sunday of Trinity

Matthew 10.40-42 - Welcome and Hospitality
Whoever welcomes you, welcomes me, and whoever welcomes me welcomes  the one who sent me. Whoever welcomes a prophet in the name of a prophet will receive a prophets reward and whoever welcomes a righteous person in the name of a righteous person will receive the righteous person will receive the reward of the righteous; and whoever gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones in the name of a disciple - truly I tell you, none of these will lose their reward.

Second Sunday of Trinity

This weeks gospel reading is Matthew 10.24-39  Matthew continues Jesus’ teaching on mission to the world. Jesus points out that the disciples must expect some opposition, including possibly from their own families, since Jesus himself has been opposed and called names. He reminds them that God loves and values them as a father.
