Tenth Sunday in Ordinary Time
In a familiar story that is heard with both heartache and hope Adam and Eve choosing the knowledge of good and evil over and above God’s command to love has set into motion a series of human behaviors that without God’s love, humankind would have fallen further into the depths of despair.
“Then I heard a loud voice in heaven say: “Now have come the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God, and the authority of his Messiah. For the accuser of our brothers and sisters, who accuses them before our God day and night, has been hurled down. They triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death.” -Rev 12:10-11
