16th Sunday in Ordinary Time

By St. Pius X | News

Today’s gospel story gives us an insight into the life of God whose power is best displayed in leniency and endless patience.  God’s mercy is more urgent than his judgment and his nature is best revealed in his tolerance towards the wayward in our midst.  By our making judgments on other people we can easily […]

15th Sunday Ordinary Time

By St. Pius X | News

Jesus paints a very familiar picture from everyday agricultural life in Palestine and draws a lesson from it. In this He compares the word of God, which is intended to produce fruit in our lives, to seed sowed in the earth by the farmer. At baptism the delicate and demanding seed of the word of […]

14th Sunday in Ordinary Time

By St. Pius X | News

From time to time, as the problems and worries of the moment overpower us, we all find life difficult and discouraging. As the signs of stress and tension become visible on our faces, we sit up and listen to those reassuring and comforting words of Jesus: “Come to me, all you that are weary and […]

The Feast of St. Peter and St. Paul

By St. Pius X | News

Today’s gospel passage is the first of the three times when Jesus foretold his passion, death and resurrection. It consists of two sections, the messianic confession of Peter and the prediction of his own Passion by Jesus. The passage explains the basis of our faith as the acceptance of Jesus as the Christ, our Lord […]

The Solemnity of the Body and Blood of Christ

By St. Pius X | News

The Solemnity of the Body and Blood of Christ is a splendid opportunity to reflect on God’s most striking gift to us and a timely reminder to renew our faith and deepen our appreciation of the real presence of Jesus in the Eucharist. He is the living bread sent down from heaven as food for […]

Trinity Sunday

By St. Pius X | News

Today is Trinity Sunday. God as Trinity is at the heart of Christian belief. We believe that in One God abides a community of Three Persons: Father, Son, and Spirit. Each is distinct, but all dwell together in perfect harmony and mutual love. That’s about as far as we can go by way of “explanation.” […]

Pentecost Sunday

By St. Pius X | News

The Season of Easter comes to an end with today’s celebration of Pentecost. The Acts of the Apostles tells the story of the great event. The Spirit, with the sound of a mighty wind, fills all assembled with God’s presence. The disciples, coming from so many different places, are able to understand each other. The […]

Ascension of the Lord

By St. Pius X | News

Today we celebrate the Ascension of the Lord—the mystery of his returning to the Father, being taken up, “seated…at [God’s] right hand in the heavenly places.” The disciples could no longer see him as before, but he promised to be with them “always, to the end of the age.” That promise of abiding presence would […]

6th Sunday of Easter

By St. Pius X | News

The mission of Jesus is brought to its fullness by the outpouring of the Spirit upon the fledgling Church at Pentecost, celebrated liturgically fifty days after Easter. We notice the Readings this Sunday making reference to the Holy Spirit. In the First Reading from the Acts of the Apostles, we hear of laying hands on […]

5th Sunday of Easter

By St. Pius X | News

We sometimes—incorrectly—assume that the early Christian community led a kind of charmed life. Not so, our First Reading today teaches us. A dispute arose among two groups of Jewish Christians: the Greek speakers or Hellenists, and the Hebrew speakers. The Hellenists thought that the vulnerable among them—their widows—were not being treated as well as the […]
