Fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time

In Mark's gospel, we see find Jesus exorcising an unclean spirit from a man in the temple, doing so as both the messenger and the message. Jesus unites the divided, purges the false, and fulfills the teachings. He is the authority - the truth - we seek.

Gospel: Mark 1:21-28

"Every mother and every father dreamed about their children for nine months. Am I right? You dreamed about how your child would be. You can't have a family without dreaming! When a family loses the ability to dream, children don't grow, love doesn't grow, life turns weak and eventually shuts off.”

As a way to keep on dreaming, Pope Francis recommended that one take time, every night, before going to sleep,  to reflect.

Third Sunday in Ordinary Time

The familiar theme of detachment runs right through all three of our readings for this week. Paul tells the Corinthians who are married to carry on as though they were not married and those who buy and sell as though they were not buying and selling. The point is that one should orient one's life totally to the absolute good who is God. When that orientation takes place, everything else--from spouses to material goods--can be let go of, can be seen in proper spiritual perspective. This detachment is, I argue, the conversion that Jesus speaks of in his inaugural address, which is our Gospel for today.

Gospel: Mark 1:14-20



"Sin separates us from God and breaks the link between earth and heaven. Therefore, its consequence is our misery and the failure of our lives.”

The Pope also encouraged Christians to pray to the Holy Spirit, as well as to publicly talk about God without fear.


If you have not picked up your Stewardship Forms please contact the parish office to arrange for pick up.
