32nd Sunday in Ordinary Time

COMING CLOSER TO CHRIST: Prayerfully consider Jesus’ words from today’s Gospel reading about how God is the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, even though they had been dead for many centuries. God is still their God because “he is not God of the dead, but of the living.” Now imagine meeting in heaven the…

Getting back to Catechesis: So what is All Souls Day again? All Souls Day isn’t as old as the Feast of All Saints but does date back more than 1000 years. The feast is celebrated to pray for the souls in Purgatory. “On this day is observed the commemoration of the faithful departed, in which…

COMING CLOSER TO CHRIST: Place yourself in the Temple scene of today’s Gospel reading. You see the Pharisee standing at the front and hear him tell God about his accomplishments. Then you notice the tax collector and hear him simply admit his weaknesses to God. Now invite the Holy Spirit to join you in prayer….

COMING CLOSER TO CHRIST: Through these 4 weeks, we have delved into the theme of gratitude. This week is all about making it a habit. To quit smoking is simple but it’s not easy. The same holds true for gratitude. Yes, gratitude is very very simple. But it is far from easy. SERVING OTHERS: Here…

COMING CLOSER TO CHRIST: Eucharist means Thanksgiving.

Learn the Language of Thanksgiving Years ago, I read the book One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp. She narrates in an introduction to one of her books: A friend dared me to start counting one thousand things I loved. I took the dare, accepted the challenge, kept track of one thousand things, one thousand gifts…

COMING CLOSER TO CHRIST Everything is grace because everything is God’s gift (St. Therese of Lisieux). The perspective of thanksgiving is the theme that will run at Sacred Heart Parish for the next few weeks to prepare our hearts for Thanksgiving Day and appreciate more the meaning of the Eucharist. Which parts of my life…

25th Sunday in Ordinary Time

COMING CLOSER TO CHRIST: You cannot serve two masters. In what ways do you use your earthly gifts (intellect, personality, wealth, and so on) to show honor and glory to the Lord? Or are we the only one we are serving? SERVING OTHERS: The Industrious Servant found a way to save face with his master…

24th Sunday in Ordinary Time

COMING CLOSER TO CHRIST We are meant not only to know but even more to experience God’s love and mercy, his leaving the 99 and going out to search for us. In what ways has God pursued you while you were away from him? How has God been like a good shepherd who found you and…

23rd Sunday in Ordinary Time

COMING CLOSER TO CHRIST Why is it that when we dream of what our life should be, we don’t consider that the cross belongs in our life? More likely, when we dream we fancy ourselves having a good time, and fulfilling our plans. This is what is wrong with this picture; we forgot our vocation…
