Live in a manner worthy of the call you have received,
with all humility and gentleness, with patience,
bearing with one another through love,
striving to preserve the unity of the Spirit
through the bond of peace:
one Body and one Spirit,
as you were also called to the one hope of your call;
one Lord, one faith, one baptism;
one God and Father of all,
who is over all and through all and in all. Ephesians 4:1-7

Holy, beloved Father,
your Son Jesus taught us
that there is great rejoicing in heaven
whenever someone lost is found,
whenever someone excluded, rejected or discarded
is gathered into our “we”,
which thus becomes ever wider.
We ask you to grant the followers of Jesus,
and all people of good will,
the grace to do your will on earth.
Bless each act of welcome and outreach
that draws those in exile
into the “we” of community and of the Church,
so that our earth may truly become
what you yourself created it to be:
the common home of all our brothers and sisters. Amen

TWENTY-FIFTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME
Let the Good News resound
Religion is often reduced to its most visible aspect: Sunday worship. But the church's ministry includes service, evangelization, healing, and teaching. On Catechetical Sunday we celebrate our mutual call to educate and instruct. "Catechize" means to echo or resound. Saint Paul once modeled for the Corinthians this task of “re-sounding” the Good News when he wrote: "I received from the Lord what I also handed on to you." Does your Catholic faith steer you when making decisions and weighing values? Does it bring consolation? Does it challenge you to sacrifice? Echo these riches to those you love.
TODAY'S READINGS: Wisdom 2:12, 17-20; James 3:16—4:3; Mark 9:30-37. “Whoever receives one child such as this in my name, receives me.” #takefiveforfaith ... See MoreSee Less

Here's the homily for our second week of Eucharistic Renewal ... See MoreSee Less
We spend time teaching our children about our faith. We also make sure they attend catechetical instruction in our parish. While these are important means to convey our faith, the most powerful and effective method for passing on the faith to our children, and others, is to live the parables of mercy, kindness and welcome: to live and act on the faith we profess…to be the Church, the body of Christ!
God’s Blessing upon all parents and catechists this Catechetical Sunday! ... See MoreSee Less
Then he sat down, called the Twelve, and said to them,
“If anyone wishes to be first,
he shall be the last of all and the servant of all.”
Taking a child, he placed it in their midst,
and putting his arms around it, he said to them,
“Whoever receives one child such as this in my name, receives me;
and whoever receives me,
receives not me but the One who sent me.” Mark 9:30-37

“Let it be unto me according to your word” (Lk 1:38). Mary gives her yes to God’s will, out of love, consenting to let God intervene in a most extraordinary way in her own life.
God has tremendous plans for our lives that He has known since time began. It’s quite remarkable and we cannot fully grasp this in our time on earth. Listen how comforting these Scripture quotes are from a couple of Old Testament prophets: “For surely I know the plans I have for you, says the LORD, plans for your welfare and not for harm, to give you a future with hope” (Jer 29:11) and “Yet I will not forget you. See, I have inscribed you on the palms of my hands” (Is 49:15-16).
How do you listen for the call of God in your life?
