LET US TAKE A MOMENT TO REFLECT ON THIS COMING WEEKEND'S READINGS
August 14, 2022
Twentieth Sunday in Ordinary Time
Then the king ordered Ebed-melech the Cushite
to take three men along with him,
and draw the prophet Jeremiah out of the cistern before
he should die.
For the sake of the joy that lay before him
he endured the cross, despising its shame,
and has taken his seat at the right of the throne of God.
Consider how he endured such opposition from sinners,
in order that you may not grow weary and lose heart.
In your struggle against sin
you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding blood.
Jesus said to his disciples:
"I have come to set the earth on fire,
and how I wish it were already blazing!
There is a baptism with which I must be baptized,
and how great is my anguish until it is accomplished!

Ways Children Go Missing
Did You Know?
According to the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, there are a few significant ways that children go missing. Nearly half of all families with autistic children have reported that their children wander and have gone missing. Other ways include abduction, either by a stranger or family members, and child sex trafficking. Parents need to be aware of warning signs and know how to take action. For information, request a copy of the VIRTUS® article, “Ways Children Go Missing,” at lacatholics.org/did-you-know/.
