Reflection for 23rd Sunday in Ordinary Time

By St. Pius X | News

The readings today carry a very clear message concerning our responsibility towards the salvation of others within the community.  We do not live our lives in isolation and in Christ we are all brothers and sisters and members of the one family.  Life is short and we all have to take seriously the duty of […]

New Parish Office Hours

By St. Pius X | News

CHANGE IN PARISH OFFICE HOURS…..Over the past few years, there has been a noticeable decrease in the number of people who need to access the Parish Office on a daily basis.  With the upcoming change in office staffing, we felt that this is the appropriate time to make a change in the hours the Parish […]

Reflection for 22nd Sunday in Ordinary Time

By St. Pius X | News

In our journey here on earth, in the grand scheme of things we are set a whole series of tests.  The road is never a straight one and suffering is a reality of human life.  In the world greed, cruelty and sickness are the order of the day.  Our earthly pilgrimage is so beset with […]

Reflection for 21st Sunday in Ordinary Time

By St. Pius X | News

In many ways it’s amazing that Christ selected Peter as the leader of the church because his record would not even have impressed his own contemporaries.  By human reckoning he was a disastrous choice and should never have been appointed.  You could hardly describe him as a stable person because at times he was brave […]

Reflection for 20th Sunday in Ordinary Time

At the heart of the Gospel is a lively exchange between Jesus and a Canaanite woman of great faith, who suffers so much from the illness of her daughter.  Totally convinced that Jesus can be of assistance in her hopeless situation she comes forward, kneels at his feet and asks for her daughter to be […]

Reflection for the 19th Sunday in Ordinary Time

By St. Pius X | News

This Gospel episode takes place while the disciples are returning by boat, having left Jesus on his own to spend some time in prayer.  Suddenly a storm blows up and their boat is in danger of foundering.  In their distress they appeal to Jesus who beckons Peter to come and walk on the waters also.  […]

Reflection for the 18th Sunday in Ordinary Time

By St. Pius X | News

In the Gospel today we have a picture of the church as it acts in every age.  Jesus did not feed the stranded crowd at the edge of the sea of Galilee all on his own.  He accomplished it with the help of his disciples who were reluctant to accept responsibility for the hungry people.  […]

Reflection for 17th Sunday in Ordinary Time

By St. Pius X | News

The readings today issue a direct challenge to all types of worldly life-styles and tell us to get our priorities right.  The treasure the gospel is referring to is our faith which tell us we are heirs to the kingdom of God.  It is so important and valuable that everybody must give it absolute priority.  […]

Reflection for 16th Sunday in Ordinary Time

By St. Pius X | News

We can see from the gospel passage that the people Christ was preaching to were country folk, close to the earth, aware of the rise and fall of the seasons and with a keen eye for harvest time.  Christ compares the church, the people of God, to a field where wheat and weeds grow side […]

Reflection for the 15th Sunday in 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.  It’s the story of a farmer who goes out to sow seed in his field.  Jesus compares the word of God, which is intended to produce fruit in our lives, to seed sowed in the earth by […]
