Twentieth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Crisis comes from a Greek word meaning judgement or decision. Service to the teachings of Jesus requires such an attitude. Fire and Division are the words Jesus uses. We know how those words cause consternation and concern. Ultimate happiness is found in imitating the Lord.      ~ Fr. Matt       

                                              

 

Nineteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Fear is the root of many human difficulties. Fear of want can foster greed.  Fear of the unknown can make us cowards. If we have a strange fear of God we can never develop a mature relationship. Fear of enemies leads to create more enemies. Fear of the future makes us live in the past. Jesus recommends faith and trust in God who loves us , is aware of our needs, and offers us goodness and blessings.        ~ Fr. Matt

Eighteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

A fool is someone who has denied or forgotten God. Reference Psalm 13:1 “ Will you forget me forever? How long will you hide your face from me?”    ~ Fr. Matt

                              

    ~ Fr. Matt

Seventh Sunday in Ordinary Time

In 1818 a king of a Pacific island converted to Christianity. Some of his subjects were not too happy organizing a coup d’état. The king rounded up his opponents and incarcerated them. They thought they were to die. The king released them to a banquet of food and drink. The rebels were astonished and because of this magnanimous gesture also embraced the faith. Every time we celebrate the Eucharist we are expanding God’s kingdom to all.    ~ Fr. Matt
