September 14/15, 2019 to celebrate the 24th Sunday in Ordinary Time. All are welcome to join us.
24th SUNDAY in ORDINARY TIME
In our gospel, today tax collectors and sinners are drawing near to listen to Jesus. Pharisees and scribes, on the other hand, observe what is happening and complain to Jesus. He answers their complaints with parables that turn the tables on their beliefs about who will be saved. It is not the self-righteous, like the scribes and Pharisees, but rather those who turn to the mercy of God, self-aware of who they are, aware of their shortcomings, and reach out for God’s forgiveness. Jesus invites everyone to his table, so come and dine with him, to talk with him and learn from him. But while all are invited, not all choose to attend. Those who think they have all the answers – their own answers – will stay away, while those filled with questions will gladly accept.
A final reminder that our annual fall retreat is next Saturday morning, September 21, in the Holy Family Parish Hall, beginning at 8:30 and concluding at 12:30 with lunch. Sister Kitty Hanley will be with us again this year. Her theme for this year’s retreat will be “Are you there God? It’s me.” There is no charge for the retreat, but we do ask that you call the parish office and let us know you are planning on attending so we can make arrangements for the food.
