Congratulations to Andrew and Jaime Couey, who were married at St. Mark the Evangelist Catholic Church on September 13th, 2014. May God bless them each day of their married life with a love like that of Christ for His Church.

(Romereports.com) In his homily, the Pope highlighted that Christians are not orphans, because Our Lady and the Church are their mothers...and together, they  lead their children towards Jesus.

"Our small soul will never get lost if these two women walk along with us throughout life: Our Lady and our Mother Church.”
The Pope then said that Our Lady was key in the life of Jesus, just like the Church, he said, is key for all Christians.


25th Sunday in Ordinary Time "Sometimes Christ does not seem fair. The Parable of the Day Laborers evokes this sense of injustice. Those who do not work as long and hard as the others get the same reward. However, Christ wants us to move beyond our sense of justice and see all according to love, God's perspective. Gratitude for the gift transforms our natural disposition to judge who deserves what into a disposition of thanksgiving."

Gospel: Matthew 20: 1-16a

(Romereports.com) Pope Francis talked about salvation and about being transformed by God. He explained that recognizing one's sins is a key part of that.

"The privileged place for an encounter with Christ are our sins. If Christians are incapable of recognizing their sins and finding salvation in the blood of Christ, they're not completely Christian.  This is for tepid Christians. When we see worn out Churches, parishes or institutions, it's surely because the Christians there have never found Jesus or they have forgotten their encounter with Him.”
