XX Sunday in Ordinary Time. Reflection of the Word of God.
"My house shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples, says the Lord."
The text of the prophet Isaiah that we read today is very important to understand the universality of salvation. That is to say, that God's plans do not include a privileged one, but their salvation is directed to all people.
Similarly, the Gospel that narrates the encounter of Jesus with a foreign woman, invites us to open our understanding, to leave behind social, racial or cultural prejudices, and to recognize ourselves as children of God.
In our days, even living in a globalized world, barriers continue to rise between peoples and nations, between different groups, even within the Christian communities. The Christian attitude should be one of acceptance and receiving, because that is the attitude of God. We are all children of God, and we want everyone's happiness. He calls everyone to his home, and wants this home to be a prayer for everyone. We already know that God is the Father of all; we believe and proclaim that Jesus died for each and every one of us. --- However, is that the reality? Let us ask the Lord of all to help us remove all discrimination and that with him we open ourselves to others.
"My house shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples." May there be space in this house, that is, among us, in our Christian communities, for every human being, whatever their race or social class, their culture or education.
