29th Sunday in Ordinary Time

St. Pius X | News

The Gospel today reminds us that we are members of God’s kingdom and citizens of the country in which we live, with obligations to both. As Christians we are not only members of the Church but also members of society.   Tensions can and will exist between our loyalty to God and our duty to our […]

28th Sunday in Ordinary Time

St. Pius X | News

In today’s gospel, Jesus is saying that, while God the Father has opened wide the doors of heaven and invited everybody into his kingdom, entrance is by no means automatic and should not be taken for granted.   It is not as easy as that, for we’ve got to work our passage, be spiritually prepared, and […]

27th Sunday in Ordinary Time

St. Pius X | News

It does not take a great deal of imagination to see ourselves in today’s Gospel parable.   Each of us is a tenant, cultivating a small portion of God’s vineyard and when harvest time arrives we are expected to produce the fruits of right living, by displaying an attitude of caring, sharing and showing forth the […]

26th Sunday in Ordinary Time

St. Pius X | News

The liturgy today points out that there must be a connection between what we say and what we do. Jesus criticized the religious leaders of his day because they shirked their responsibility and only thought that they wanted to do God’s will.   Their promises were empty because they did not keep them and as a […]

25th Sunday in Ordinary Time

St. Pius X | News

Our picture of God is influenced to some extent by our ordinary way of looking at things and that is why, as we listen to this gospel, we are tempted to react and share the grumble of the workers who have laboured since early morning.   But the parable is not dealing with equal rights for […]

The Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross

St. Pius X | News

Why do we Christians insist on celebrating the Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross? Non-believers looking at the cross see nothing but a symbol of total defeat for Jesus.  They see a life cut short by torture and death and wonder why we Christians focus on this aspect.  Why not focus, for example […]

23rd Sunday in Ordinary Time

The readings today carry a very clear message concerning our responsibility towards the salvation of others within the community.    In Christ we are all brothers and sisters and members of the one family.  Life is short and we all have to take seriously the duty of doing good while we can by helping  those who […]

22nd Sunday in Ordinary Time

St. Pius X | News

Peter found it difficult to accept that the mission of Jesus would end with the cross and crucifixion.   He did not see why pain and suffering were necessary for discipleship.  He thought that being part of the kingdom was a matter of power and success.   Peter had yet to learn that the standards of Christ […]
