FROM THE PASTOR
Thirtieth Sunday in Ordinary Time
October 23, 2016
On the Thirtieth Sunday, the weekend of October 22/23, we continue with Luke's Gospel (18:9‐14) and the well known parable of the Pharisee and the Tax Collector. Two men went up to the temple. The Pharisee went to the front of the temple not to pray to God but to build himself up as superior to the tax collector. The tax collector stayed in the back of the temple and wouldn't even lift his head. He only acknowledged his sinfulness and asked for mercy! That day the least likely of the two men (the tax collector) went away from the temple justified! Jesus teaches us that true righteousness has to do with a humility based on honesty before God! As servants of Christ, we can do no less! No matter who we are, we are all part of sinful humanity! We are all in need of God's Mercy! God Bless All The Humble Servants of Christ!
We commend all those who will be participating in the Human Rosary on Saturday, October 29th in the Hall from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. By their very involvement, they will be giving witness to the enduring and persistent power of their faith as Roman Catholics.
Blessings Upon All,
