After some opening discussion we will be breaking up into small groups to read one or more of the following scripture passages and reflect on it. You may use the following questions to guide your reflection:
1. How would you characterize Jesus' teaching and practice toward the poor based on his actions and stories?
2. What challenges and threats to the Option for the Poor and Vulnerable exist in today's society?
3. How does Jesus approach to the poor and vulnerable compare with our society's?
4. What values of our society oppose the option for the poor and vulnerable.
Luke 16:19-31 (Parable of the Rich Man and Lazarus)
Mark 12:2-31 (Greatest Commandment)
Matthew 25:34-40 (Parable of the Final Judgment)
Mark 10:17-22 (Rich Young Man)
Luke 4:16-19 (Mission of Jesus)
Luke 7:20-22 (Report to John the Baptist}
Luke 6:20-21, 24-25 (Luke's Beatitudes)
Luke 6:30-33, 36 (Give to everyone who asks)
Luke 12:33-34 (Sell your belongings and give alms.)
Mark 98:1-9 (Feeding the crowd)
Luke 14:12-14 (Invite the poor to the banquet.)
We will then re-gather and share our reflection with the whole group.
After a short discussion of the Church's key teachings on the option for the poor, we will again break up to reflect on any or all of these points.
Each group will write one or two intercessions for the poor and vulnerable to be shared with the all ages closing.
All times are UTC-04:00
