Hurricane Dorien Notice

Special Note: Religious Education postponed its opening Family Sessions by a week. Thus, the first Family Session (in the Church) will be Sept 10 or 11, with Classroom Sessions on Sept 17 or 18 (as originally scheduled) AND on Sept 24 or 25 (added to the original calendar due to the delay of start). Thus, most basically, everything is simply 'pushed' one week. New family calendars will be emailed and distributed at the Family Sessions (now on Sept 10 or 11).

Season of Creation

Click here to read the full two page article published by the USCCB (United States Conference of Catholic Bishops) about the Season of Creation (Sept 1 - Oct 4), a time dedicated to prayer and work on taking better care of our world. During this Season of Creation, let's all join in prayer as instructed by Pope Francis:

O God of the poor, help us to rescue the abandoned and forgotten of this earth, who are so precious in your eyes… God of love, show us our place in this world as channels of your love for all the creatures of this earth, God of mercy, may we receive your forgiveness and convey your mercy throughout our common home. Praise be to you! Amen.

Reflection

September 15, 2019

24th Sunday in Ordinary Time
 
"Tax collectors and sinners were all drawing near to listen to Jesus, but the Pharisees and scribes began to complain?" In this Sunday's Gospel, we learn the context for the forthcoming parables about the lost and found. A great mixed crowd surrounds Jesus. The religious elite are present, along with all manner of local lowlifes. The Pharisees seem a bit upset that this wasn't the lecture series they were hoping for. Why would Jesus welcome sinners?
 
Jesus responds as if it's the most obvious thing in the world. "Rejoice with me because I have found my lost sheep... rejoice because I have found the coin that I lost ? let us celebrate with a feast, because this son of mine... was lost, and has been found!" Each of the parables features a dramatic example. Of 99 sheep, one has gone astray. Of 10 coins, one has gone missing. The welcomed son has previously been a covetous scoundrel. Jesus' point to the Pharisees is clear. If the Gospel really is "good news," if our faith really has the power to save, why wouldn't we want everyone drawing near? Why wouldn't we do everything in our power to eke out that possibility for every single person, no matter where they have wandered? After all, if this message is not of value to everyone, why is it of value to anyone?
 
Our Christian faith is not a matter of rule adherence for the perfectionist elite. In our own ways, each of us is the lost sheep, the prodigal son. There is no one who "has no need of repentance." The Church is a mixed crowd. And we are mixed people. And the Gospel has good news for each of us today! There is no one Jesus doesn't go after, no one he does not catch sight of "while... still a long way off," no one to whom he does not run to embrace and welcome home.
