20th Sunday in Ordinary Time

By St. Pius X | News

The gospel story is a strange one, and yet it is one that all of us are familiar with. It involves an encounter with a beggar. True, the Canaanite woman was not begging for money. But she was begging for a favor. At one time or another all of us have approached by a beggar, […]

19th Sunday in Ordinary Time

By St. Pius X | News

If taken literally the Gospel story has little or no relevance for us. But it seems that Matthew meant it to be taken symbolically. The boat represents the Church; the winds and the waves stand for the persecutions that had been let loose on the early Christians. Jesus is not with them physically; he is […]

Feast of the Transfiguration

By St. Pius X | News

At times we read the Scriptures and immediately we see how it connects to our lives.   But there are other passages from the Gospels that don’t have that effect.  In fact, they seem so disconnected with our lives, that we often don’t give them a second thought.  Perhaps today’s story of the Transfiguration of Our […]

17th Sunday in Ordinary Time

By St. Pius X | News

Since the dawn of time people have been looking for treasure. People have searched high and low and in every conceivable place hoping to hit the jackpot, and if they did, all their troubles would be over. In one way or another, all of us are treasure-hunters. All of us are looking for something that […]

16th Sunday in Ordinary Time

By St. Pius X | News

In today’s gospel Jesus continues his teaching about the Reign of God, with three parables which reveal their secrets only to a careful listener and specifically those who have a genuine willingness to adopt his teachings. What is important for us to notice is how tiny and insignificant are the three examples Jesus uses! Then, […]

15th Sunday in Ordinary Time

A seed is a marvellous thing – it can make barren ground fruitful. But a seed is an extremely weak and vulnerable thing. It depends entirely on the kind of soil in which it is sown. If the soil is lacking, the seed will come to nothing; if the soil is good, it will produce […]

14th Sunday of Ordinary Time

By St. Pius X | News

It gives us joy to know an important person. However, to know often simply means to know facts about the person. But to know another person in this way is to have a very shallow knowledge of that person. To really know means to have a relationship with the person, a relationship based on trust […]

13th Sunday in Ordinary Time

By St. Pius X | News

The Gospel contains the conclusion of Matthew’s missionary discourse. Jesus instructs his apostles on the sacrifices involved, and the priorities they must embrace, in being his envoys to the world. He tells them that they must be ready, if need be, to sacrifice the dearest things in life. In certain and rare circumstances, they might […]
