THIRTY-SECOND SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME — Year C
Gospel: Luke 20:27-38
Some Sadducees came forward (the ones who claim there is no resurrection) to pose this question: “Teacher, Moses prescribed that if a man’s brother dies leaving a wife and no child, the brother should marry the widow to raise up children with her. Well then, there were seven
brothers. The first one married and died childless. Next, the second brother married the widow, then the third, and so on. All seven died without leaving her any children. Finally the widow herself died. At the resurrection, who will be her husband? Remember, seven married her.”
Jesus said to them: “The children of this age marry and are given in marriage, but those judged worthy of a place in the age to come and of resurrection from the dead do not. They become like angels and are no longer liable to death. Children of the resurrection, they are children of God.
Moses in the passage about the bush showed that the dead rise again when he called God the God of Abraham and Sarah, and the God of Isaac and Rebecca, and the God of Jacob and Leah. God is not the God of the dead but of the living. All are alive for God.”
The Good News as spoken through Luke.
