News from our Parish
Twenty Fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time.
. Jesus said to the disciples: “Whoever wishes to come after me must deny him/herself. Then take up their cross and follow me! If you strive to save your life, you will lose it. However, if you lose your life for my sake and for that of the Gospel, you will save your life.”
Today Jesus asks us: “Who do you say that I am?” Take a few moments and seriously ask yourself: Who do I say Jesus is? Who is he to me? Is he simply a man that lived over 2,000 years ago? Or is Jesus real to me? Ask yourself: How does Jesus and his teaching and example of self-sacrificing love, affect my daily choices and actions? Is the impact significant? Or is it minor?
Answering Jesus’ question may clarify for us who Jesus is for us today! Hopefully we will reiterate Peter’s response: “You are the Christ.”
for the readings, useful background and activities for the entire family to better understand the upcoming Sunday's Scripture readings, helping you to connect the Scripture to daily life in a meaningful way.
