25th Sunday in Ordinary Time

St. Pius X | News

Everyone loves stories. Look at the great epics and movies. People learn through stories. The Bible is the greatest story ever told. God speaks to us in an understandable way. Like a parent to their children God speaks to us. God’s words are so deep. We are scratching the surface. In today’s Gospel, we hear […]

24th Sunday in Ordinary Time

St. Pius X | News

The Book of Sirach had a great influence in the development of common-sense wisdom.  Today’s reading is a case in point.  It takes a lot of energy to stay mad.  So, we need to let go.  It is the only way.  Letting grudges and anger go is more liberating.  This leads us into the Gospel […]

23rd Sunday in Ordinary Time

St. Pius X | News

The question in today’s Gospel is not forgiveness, but the sin of one member of the community. This passage raises a very practical issue: how to act when someone close to us is treating us badly. Obviously, these kind of problems occurred even in the first Christian community. Today’s Gospel gives us a way of […]

22nd Sunday in Ordinary Time

St. Pius X | News

Today Jesus says, “If anyone wants to become my followers, let them deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me.” This is not an extreme statement. Actually, Jesus is giving us the common sense wisdom of human life. If you want to follow a medical or engineering or legal career, you must deny […]

21st Sunday in Ordinary Time

St. Pius X | News

Today’s gospel shows that the primacy of Peter was not something that was invented by the Church later on.  It went right back to the beginning, yes, to the mind and will of Jesus himself.  The failures of popes throughout history do not contradict Jesus’ promise that the gates of hell would not prevail against […]

20th Sunday in Ordinary Time

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

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

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

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

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, […]
