28th Sunday in Ordinary Time

St. Pius X | News

Ingratitude is perhaps the most common of all human failings.  Nothing is so hurtful as to be taken for granted without a word spoken in thanks or praise.  What causes the most pain is the neglect and coldness of those for whom we have done our best.  One of the most satisfying experiences in life […]

We are all familiar with this gospel passage which encourages the practice of humility.  Today in a world of power and privilege, humility does not get good publicity. In fact, it is often associated with weakness and a poor self-image ~ but it is none of these. Humility is an attempt to try and see […]

21st Sunday in Ordinary Time
