28th Sunday in Ordinary Time

By St. Pius X | News

In the gospel today, Jesus tells a story about a king who gave a fancy dinner party for his son’s wedding. He worked hard to make his dinner perfect. He sent out invitations. But none of the invited guests came! In response to this, the king then just invited other guests, and they all had […]

27th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Today’s gospel parable of the Tenants qualifies as world-class because it shakes up our assumptions and makes us wonder what is going on here and it helps us to make a decision.  In this Parable, the landowner represents God who did everything he could to provide a productive vineyard for the tenants.  He got the […]

26th Sunday in Ordinary Time

By St. Pius X | News

Most of Jesus’ teachings were in parables.  A parable is supposed to do two things: Firstly it shakes up our assumption and makes us wonder what is going on here, and secondly, it helps us make a decision.  If a parable doesn’t rattle our beliefs, then we haven’t really understood what it said.  Jesus’ message […]

25th Sunday in Ordinary Time

By St. Pius X | News

Everyone loves stories. Look at the great epics and movies. People learn through stories. The Bible is the greatest story ever told. God speaks to us in an understandable way. Like a parent to their children God speaks to us. God’s words are so deep. We are scratching the surface. In today’s Gospel, we hear […]

24th Sunday in Ordinary Time

By St. Pius X | News

The Book of Sirach had a great influence in the development of common-sense wisdom.  Today’s reading is a case in point.  It takes a lot of energy to stay mad.  So, we need to let go.  It is the only way.  Letting grudges and anger go is more liberating.  This leads us into the Gospel […]

23rd Sunday in Ordinary Time

By St. Pius X | News

The question in today’s Gospel is not forgiveness, but the sin of one member of the community. This passage raises a very practical issue: how to act when someone close to us is treating us badly. Obviously, these kind of problems occurred even in the first Christian community. Today’s Gospel gives us a way of […]

22nd Sunday in Ordinary Time

By St. Pius X | News

Today Jesus says, “If anyone wants to become my followers, let them deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me.” This is not an extreme statement. Actually, Jesus is giving us the common sense wisdom of human life. If you want to follow a medical or engineering or legal career, you must deny […]

21st Sunday in Ordinary Time

By St. Pius X | News

Today’s gospel shows that the primacy of Peter was not something that was invented by the Church later on.  It went right back to the beginning, yes, to the mind and will of Jesus himself.  The failures of popes throughout history do not contradict Jesus’ promise that the gates of hell would not prevail against […]
