Happy Autumn Equinox
May we reflect the beauty of the gift of God’s love in our lives, whatever the season! ☀️🍁🌾🍂🎃🌻 ... See MoreSee Less
We often think of colors as associated with particular seasons: yellows, reds, and oranges mark autumn, after the green of summer; winter is white and silver and blue, before green and the colors of flowers blooming return in the spring. Throughout those seasons, some of our holidays have culturally-associated colors, too: Christmas is red & green, Easter pastels, St. Patrick’s Day green (& St. Valentine’s pinks and reds). But did you know the liturgical year, the sacred calendar of the church, has associated colors, too?
Lent is purple, then Passion Week red, before Easter bursts on the scene with its white and/or gold. Advent, too, is purple or blue, followed by Christmas that is white/gold. Pentecost is red; Epiphany, Transfiguration, Trinity Sunday, and All Saints’ Day are all white. White (& gold, in some traditions) is the color of festival and feasting. Purples are more somber, for the waiting and fasting seasons.
But this season we are in now? Ordinary time, the longest season of the church calendar? Green. We are in the midst of a months-long recognition of a time that is for greening and growing, for life springing up even when it seems not to match the outer seasons. In our world, greens are going to start changing into their warmer colors of reds and oranges and yellows and golds and browns. And yet, we continue to be in a season that recognizes the life remaining underneath the changes, sustained in the midst even of earth’s transition through the shedding and loss of autumn on its way to the seemingly barren rest of winter. The colors will change with the beginning of Advent, but not till then.
What is green and growing in you, in your community and relationships? Where are shy leaves just beginning to unfurl, or sprouts just emerging from seeds that have been in your ground for whatever length of time? What is flourishing, even if it seems unseasonable?

The parable of the workers in the vineyard (this Sunday’s Gospel) presents an encouraging, if challenging, image of the generosity of God. We are invited to accept this generosity for ourselves and express it towards others. If this seems too hard for us to comprehend, let us take heart that the ways of the Lord are very different from our own ways.
The words of Scripture reassure us that we need not worry, for the Lord is near to us, ever present. Our God is full of compassion and forgiveness, willing us to seek him out. Let us pray that the whole Christian community will be inspired always to seek the Lord. Together as the body of Christ, we can transform the world with the justice and generosity of God. ...

Sept. 5 is the Feast Day of St. Teresa of Calcutta. The order she founded has a strong presence in our border region. In San Diego, contemplative Missionaries of Charity have lived in the Southcrest neighborhood for 31 years.
They contribute to the life of St. Jude of the Shrine West Parish, which is steps away from their expanded convent, which opened in 2017 and features a statue to their founder.
