25th Sunday in Ordinary Time

St. Pius X | News

The disciples never cease to amaze us.  At the very moment when Jesus is telling them about his coming passion and death, they are not even listening.    When asked by Christ what they were arguing about they were anything but proud and were clearly embarrassed and remained silent.   So Jesus uses this occasion to put […]

24th Sunday in Ordinary Time

St. Pius X | News

The age old problem of why people suffer has puzzled thinking minds down the centuries and has never been satisfactorily resolved. Jesus never explained why we have to suffer, nor did he rid the world of suffering. What he did was to give suffering meaning and value by filling it with his presence. In his […]

23rd Sunday in Ordinary Time

St. Pius X | News

Spending time in the company of people who are deaf and mute makes us realize how precious the gifts of speech and hearing are.   We do take for granted our ability to hear and speak, but both gifts are meant for a purpose even greater than human communication.  They are also our means of listening […]

22nd Sunday in Ordinary Time

St. Pius X | News

In today’s Gospel, our Lord is pointing out something he wants us to notice.  Christ’s words to the Pharisees are a challenge and we can hardly deny that they apply to us also.  The attitude of the Pharisee lurks within all of us, so a warning about it is never out of place.  Jesus is […]

21st Sunday in Ordinary Time

St. Pius X | News

The declaration of Jesus that he was the living Bread come down from heaven and the source of eternal life, proved too much for some of his followers. They could not believe in such a claim and started to drift away.  Neither surprised nor disappointed at their reaction, Jesus did not take back anything he […]

20th Sunday in Ordinary Time

St. Pius X | News

Today’s gospel tells us clearly that Jesus offers us his Body and Blood as necessary spiritual food for our journey through life and he warns us of the consequences of not accepting the gift.  We are reminded of the closeness of the union to which Christ calls us in every celebration of the Eucharist.   Jesus […]

19th Sunday in Ordinary Time

St. Pius X | News

Many times in our life we might have felt like saying with Elijah, ‘Lord, I’ve had enough.’  Christian life is by no means smooth sailing and we often find ourselves broken and crushed by circumstances that come our way.  Left to our own resources we find no light at the end of the tunnel.  To […]

18th Sunday in Ordinary Time

St. Pius X | News

On the day following the miracle of the loaves and fishes, our Lord had an eager audience. The people, obviously impressed with what happened, are back following him. They think that he can supply them with food and fulfil their material hopes and ambitions, without any effort on their own part. In our world today, […]

17th Sunday in Ordinary Time

St. Pius X | News

In the gospel today, through the power and prayer of the Lord, the impossible becomes possible.   What is given to Jesus as a sacrifice is given back by him totally transformed. The message that can be taken from this is the importance of sharing what we have with those who are less well off. The […]

16th Sunday in Ordinary Time

St. Pius X | News

The very ancient theme of early Christian art is expressed in today’s gospel where Christ took pity on the crowd who were like sheep without a shepherd.   We can all draw a lesson from the open-hearted behavior of Christ in placing the needs of others before his own. If there is no rest for Jesus, […]
