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

Parish Calendar & Liturgical Roles

Beginning with the insert in this Sunday’s bulletin, the monthly calendar with liturgical roles will come out two Sunday’s before the given month starts.

( 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.”


16th Sunday in Ordinary Time Jesus' parables in today's Gospel tell us how and why the Kingdom of God emerges. It does so often through struggle, quietly and clandestinely, and through infiltration rather than direct confrontation."

Gospel: Matthew 13: 24-43

Knights of Columbus

( The Pope has often defended the role of elderly people, both within the Church and in society.

July 25, 2014
"We don't take care of the elderly. And there's also a cultural euthanasia. They are not allowed to speak or act”.

For this reason, Francis has decided that September 28 would be their day, in which their voices would be heard. It will be the first time a meeting has taken place between the Pope and the elderly.
