( The Pope explained in his homily that when a person finds God, they have to choose Him over any evil.

"Giving primacy to God means having the courage to say no to evil, violence, oppression; to live a life of service to others and in favor of lawfulness and the common good.”


18th Sunday in Ordinary Time "The compassion of Jesus creates the Church. We are the instruments of the Lord's love for the world. How do we cooperate with him? By giving him even the little that we have and waiting for him to multiply it!"

Gospel: Matthew 14: 13-21

Fr. Guillermo Karcher: Papal Liturgical Celebrations
"After having breakfast, I talk to him for a bit, practically on a daily basis. We catch up and of course I keep him up to date with news in Argentina.  He can manage a lot of work. He's a very good listener and he connects with people easily. In fact, he is convinced that God makes Himself present in these daily encounters.”

When it comes to the Pope's schedule, he says he follows a strict pattern. He wakes up at about 4.30 every morning. From 5.00 to 7.00 he prays and prepares the homily of his daily Mass in Casa Santa Marta. After greeting everyone there, he haves breakfast and then gets to work. Everything from private meetings to public events.

17th Sunday in Ordinary Time "At the conclusion of chapter 13 of Matthew's Gospel, the chapter of parables, Jesus says, ""the scribe who is learned in the Kingdom of God is like the householder who brings forth from his storehouse both the old and the new."" The one who is wise in the ways of God escapes the ideologies of both left and right--the idolatry of both the new and the old. Focused on God alone, he is able to see the value in both novelty and tradition."

Gospel: Matthew 13: 44-52

Wedding Bells!

Congratulations to Bradley and Sarah Martin, who were married at St. Mark the Evangelist Catholic Church on July 12th, 2014. May God bless them each day of their married life with a love like that of Christ for His Church.

( Pope Francis is a big sports fan. But a few weeks back, he didn't seem that impressed with basketball. There's no doubt- soccer is his number one pick.

But it's not all games. Time and time again he has made it a point to remind players about the responsibility that come with fame.

"People look up to you. Not just on the field, but also outside. This is a big social responsibility. You see, in soccer, when you're on the field, there's beauty, generosity and sportsmanship. When a match lacks this, it looses strength, even when you win.”
