Today’s gospel reminds us of the end of time by drawing our attention to the last moments of Christ’s earthly life.  He was crucified on the cross between two thieves, for claiming to be a king, yet the only crown he wore was braided with thorns.  At the moment of his greatest human agony he […]

As the Church’s year draws to a close and another year of life slips quietly by, our thoughts are directed towards the end of time.  And as Jesus paints a picture foretelling the end of the world one message that becomes clear is that our state of readiness to meet the Lord depends on the […]

28th Sunday in Ordinary Time

St. Pius X | News

Ingratitude is perhaps the most common of all human failings.  Nothing is so hurtful as to be taken for granted without a word spoken in thanks or praise.  What causes the most pain is the neglect and coldness of those for whom we have done our best.  One of the most satisfying experiences in life […]

27th Sunday in Ordinary Time

St. Pius X | News

As they approached Jerusalem, the apostles sense the mounting opposition to the master’s mission and feel isolated.  They are tempted to despair.  They ask Jesus to increase their faith that they will be able to remain steadfast in their following.  Jesus in his reply to their request emphasizes that a faith that is deep-rooted can […]
