Prayer of St. Cyprian
Almighty God, we are reminded through your servant St. Cyprian, of your Spirit always within us and Your continued presence in us, and of our oneness with You and the Church. May we always grow together and profess You in Faith, Unity, and Hope. Guided by the Holy Spirit, we ask this through Christ our Lord
From the Pastor’s Desk
May Jesus Christ, who summons us to follow him on the journey to Jerusalem, be with you!
We return to the season of Ordinary Time. This means there are no special liturgical celebrants and events. It is an opportunity to lay back and rest while continuing our praise and thanks to God. During Ordinary Time we celebrate the whole life of Christ and learn the meaning of living as his disciples. Ordinary Time is a time for growth and maturation, a time in which the mystery of Christ is called to penetrate ever more deeply into history until all things are finally caught up in Christ. During these months of Ordinary Time, continue reading scripture, pray the rosary, attend Sunday Mass, and even daily Mass. Continue deepening your relationship with Our Lord.
Our readings for today’s Mass reminds us to turn back, even amid rejection.
In the first passage we see the hostility Jesus encountered from the inhabitants of a Samaritan village and his refusal to retaliate as James and John suggested. This is followed by the stories of the three would be followers of Jesus. Jesus tells them that the total commitment is demanded of a disciple. The choices are not between good and evil, but between the good and the best. God will help us to stay on the chosen road, and to persevere at the chosen task. All we must do is remain faithful to him.
Peace and Blessings
