2nd Sunday in Ordinary Time

By St. Pius X | News

Even though this is the year of Mark, we begin with a reading from John.  The second Sunday of Ordinary Time respects an old liturgical theme of celebrating different epiphanies or manifestations of Jesus.  John shows us a gradual recognition of who Jesus is – through the testimony of John the Baptist and the confession […]

Epiphany of the Lord

By St. Pius X | News

God revealed himself to the Jews through the Scriptures, and to the Gentiles through nature.  Since the Magi were Gentiles, Matthew shows them receiving a revelation through astrology.  The story highlights the paradox of how the Jews who have the Scripture reject Jesus, while Gentiles come and, with the help of Scriptures, find and adore […]

Feast of the Holy Family

By St. Pius X | News

We call Jesus’ family the Holy Family, and rightly so.  But perhaps we have an idealized picture of it:  angels whispering in the ears of Mary and Joseph, telling them what to do in moments of doubt, warning them in times of danger, and so on.  It’s as if they never had a doubt, never […]

4th Sunday in Advent

By St. Pius X | News

Often in life we can’t see the full meaning of what we do.  Sometimes this meaning is completely hidden from us.  In such a case it becomes very difficult to go on, especially if the task is disagreeable, or those for whom we do it are ungrateful.  In today’s Gospel we see how Mary consented […]

3rd Sunday in Advent

By St. Pius X | News

In today’s gospel, John the Baptist declares that he is not the Saviour.  His task is to prepare the way for the Saviour, who is already among the people, though they do not recognize him.  Following last Sunday’s lead, John summons all to faith in Jesus Christ.  For John, his lifestyle, as well as his […]

2nd Sunday in Advent

By St. Pius X | News

In today’s liturgy we hear again the lonely voice of John the Baptist calling us to prepare a way for the Lord…to make a straight highway for our God.  This involves finding time in our busy lives and space in our busy hearts, for the Lord. The highway to be made is our way of […]

1st Sunday in Advent

By St. Pius X | News

The season of Advent prepares us for Christmas.  In order to understand the message of Christmas we have to start at the beginning – with the history of salvation.  The Advent liturgy relives in a microcosmic way the history of Israel, viewing it through the eyes of Christian faith.  It shows that all of that […]

The Feast of Christ the King

By St. Pius X | News

  Today, we celebrate the Feast of Christ the King.  The faithful gain strength and courage from the celebration of this feast, as we are reminded that Christ must reign in our hearts, minds, wills and bodies.  Although Emperors and Kings now exist mostly in history books, we still honor Christ as the King of […]

33rd Sunday in Ordinary Time

By St. Pius X | News

There are two kinds of people in our churches today: risk-takers and care-takers.  The problem with care-takers is that they might show up at the gate of heaven with little to show for the lives they have lived.  Jesus warns us against our care-taker’s attitude in today’s Gospel parable.  All life is a risk.  People […]
