A Message From Father Walter

 

TWENTIETH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME

How do we reconcile today’s Gospel with Jesus, the Prince of Peace? Human beings,  with our God-given free will are able to accept or reject peace in whatever form it comes to us. We see this in the time of Jesus and throughout the past two thousand years. Jesus’ proclamation of the kingdom of God where the poor and the humble are blessed and the rich and powerful are turned away has often been rejected and met with resistance. Jesus proclaimed the reign of God and this reign challenged people, especially those in power. However, when Jesus himself met with resistance, even resistance up to death on a cross, he responded with nonviolence, forgiveness, and love. On our journey of faith we will meet resistance too when we challenge the status quo. May our response be that of Jesus, the Prince of Peace.

Eucharistic Adoration

Every Wednesday, from 8:30am-6:00pm, in the Church

O Come Let Us Adore Him!!

The Catechism quotes Pope John Paul II: "The Church and the world have a great need for Eucharistic worship. Jesus awaits us in this sacrament of love. Let us not refuse the time to go to meet him in adoration, in contemplation full of faith, and open to making amends for the serious offenses and crimes of the world. Let our adoration never cease." (CCC, 1380)

Consider signing up for an hour to pray before the Blessed Sacrament.  Adorers are always welcome to stop in and spend time with our Lord.

Sunday Obligation

The obligation to attend Holy Mass on the Lord’s Day is a sacred one. Anyone who is frail or at risk due to advanced age or medical conditions is always excused from this obligation.

However, those who are healthy and not at great risk, the presumption of the faithful should be that, unless they are at an enhanced risk, sick, or caring for others who are at risk or sick, are obligated to attend Sunday Mass.
