33rd Sunday in Ordinary Time

St. Pius X | News

The readings today aim to focus our minds on an overall view of life’s purpose so as to encourage us to live on a more spiritual level.  We are on an earthly pilgrimage and have within us deep-seated longings for a better world.  At journey’s end we are hoping for an everlasting happiness, for a […]

32nd Sunday in Ordinary Time

St. Pius X | News

This little incident outside the temple described in today’s gospel is worth recalling because it draws our attention to the manner in which Jesus weighs us up and judges us. While we are content to be guided by appearances, to judge peoples by what they possess and to value presents by how much they cost, […]

31st Sunday in Ordinary Time

St. Pius X | News

To those willing to listen, Jesus goes straight to the heart of what constitutes true worship and spells out clearly the guidelines for good Christian living.  He tells us God’s commandments can be reduced to two:  love of God and love of our neighbour.  We are to love God with all we have got and, […]

30th Sunday in Ordinary Time

St. Pius X | News

The blind Bartimaeus is an example of what our faith and trust in Jesus ought to be. The fact that we have eyes does not mean that we always see what is most important in life.  There is more to sight than merely seeing the light of day.  Eyes are of little use if we […]

29th Sunday in Ordinary Time

St. Pius X | News

Society, at any age, can never get away from the problems posed by status and rank.  It was no different in the time of Jesus.  The old controversy about who was the greatest surfaces once again amongst the apostles.  This time James and John are requesting favored treatment from Jesus.  It was no small honour […]

28th Sunday in Ordinary Time

St. Pius X | News

In an age when many of us find it difficult to make ends meet, contemporary society bombards us with a set of values based on the need for material security. But the wisdom that comes from God measures differently and ranks power and riches as nothing. There is more to life than what is immediately […]

27th Sunday in Ordinary Time

St. Pius X | News

In the last lines of today’s Gospel, Jesus tells us to become like little children in order to enter the kingdom of heaven. We tend to regard childhood as something that we must grow out of, leave completely behind, as if there was nothing in it that was worth keeping. Unfortunately, what tends to happen […]

26th Sunday in Ordinary Time

St. Pius X | News

In the gospel today, Jesus made it clear that all good comes from God and that doing charitable work was not the exclusive right of his followers.  God moves where he wills and chooses whom he wills.  His spirit is at work beyond the confines of established religion.  With the best will in the world, […]

25th Sunday in Ordinary Time

St. Pius X | News

The disciples never cease to amaze us.  At the very moment when Jesus is telling them about his coming passion and death, they are not even listening.  They are so immersed in a quarrel, squabbling over who is the greatest among them, that what he says does not even register with them.  Somehow, we would […]
