St. Pius X | News

Society, at any age, can never get away from the problems posed by status and rank. It was no different in the time of Jesus. The old controversy about who was the greatest surfaces once again amongst the apostles. After calming both James and John, Jesus then clearly spells out a new standard of greatness […]

St. Pius X | News

In an age when many of us find it difficult to make ends meet, contemporary society bombards us with a set of values based on the need for material security.  But God looks at things differently.  There is more to life than what is immediately apparent and spiritual values run deeper than worldly standards.   We […]

Life could be described as a journey, and marriage is two people making that journey together in partnership.  The wedding day is but the starting point when the church blesses the couple and family and friends gather to celebrate their departure and to wish them good luck for the road ahead.  The sight of newly-weds […]

26th Sunday in Ordinary Time

St. Pius X | News

In the gospel today, Jesus made it clear that all good comes from God the Father and that doing charitable work was not the exclusive right of his followers.  God moves where he wills and chooses whom he wills.  His spirit is at work beyond the confines of established religion.  Unfortunately we can all fall […]

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 […]

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 […]
