Readings for the Week of August 12, 2018
The Catholic Church welcomes your interest in our Church. The initiation process has been a blessing for the Church.

On July 25, the Church marks the fiftieth anniversary of the most reviled and rejected magisterial document of all time. Many papal encyclicals remain unread, others are perused and ignored, but Pope Paul VI’s Humanae Vitae was pervasively condemned and opposed. This antipathy came not only from predictable sources, like radical secularists, sexual revolutionaries and anti-Catholic Christians, but also from remarkably [...]Read More

The Greatest in the Kingdom/The Parable of the Lost Sheep Matthew 18:1-5, 10, 12-14 In a society focused on status and position, the disciples ask their question about the greatest in God’s kingdom. In response Jesus points to a lowly child, one without status. He also talks about a sinner, one who has gone astray. Just as the shepherd seeks his lost sheep, the Father seeks and welcomes the return of those lost to sin. Prayer: Even at my worst I am not lost in your eyes. As insignificant as I might feel, I still have value.Read More

The Second Prediction of the Passion/Payment of the Temple Tax Matthew 17:22-27 This second prediction is clearly understood by the disciples as evidenced by their being “overwhelmed with grief.” A question is put to Peter concerning Jesus’ payment of the temple tax. Jesus did pay the tax to be respectful and not to cause additional conflict with the authorities. They clearly would not understand his reason for exemption. Prayer: I look to you as one in the world but not of the world. It is a difficult balance, so I lean on you to guide me in doing what is right.Read More

The Bread of Life Discourse John 6:41-51 The Jews knowledge of Jesus’ background gets in the way of being open to him. His reference to their ancestors and the manna in the desert does not even appeal to their senses, to their hearts. They are blind to him and deaf to his message. Prayer: There is so much to be learned from the reality that, no matter how many times you were ignored and even completely rejected, you never gave up on your people. In the same way, you never give up on me.Read More

Vatican City, Aug 12, 2018 / 05:31 am (CNA/EWTN News).- It is not enough for Catholics to not do bad things, they must counter evil by actively living out charity in the performance of good deeds, Pope Francis told young people and others in St. Peter’s Square Sunday.
“If we do not oppose evil, we feed it tacitly. It is necessary to intervene where evil spreads; because evil spreads where there are no daring Christians who oppose with good, ‘walking in love,’ according to the warning of St. Paul,” the pope said Aug. 12.Read More

This year, the Solemnity of the Assumption marks nine years of marriage for my husband and me. When we got engaged, I knew that he had a deep love for Mary, so it didn’t surprise me when he suggested choosing the Assumption as our wedding day. “You know that you will have to do the […]Read More

The approach to Calvary may be made by way of the Old Testament, by way of meditation on the Passion, by way of the Mass. But in the last analysis it is by way of experience. Until we have suffered something, however little, of Christ’s last hours, we do not know what pain, in the Christian […]Read More

At the end of September the Church celebrates the memory of Saint Jerome. Born a saint, he was not: he had a fiery and explosive temper that brought him many enemies, fierce and long temptations against chastity that he battled with prayer and prolonged fasting, and long prayer vigils—this was Saint Jerome. Despite his temperamental defects and […]Read More
