P


SUNDAY, JULY 20- XVI SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME

In today's Gospel, the lesson of the parable of the weeds among the wheat is succinctly stated in the lines from Wisdom, which speak of God as just but kind. What is particularly striking in these verses is the balance the author achieves between God's might and God's mercy. In his view, God's leniency proves God's power. As he puts it, "Your mastery over all things makes you lenient to all." The same sense is conveyed in Jesus' parable. There is an interesting contrast presented between the calm restraint of the householder and the high anxiety of his slaves. As soon as the weeds appear, the slaves look for someone to blame. They even suggest that the householder has not sown good seed, and they are ready to act immediately to rid the crop of noxious weeds. He, on the other hand, acts with practical wisdom, confident that his wheat can tolerate the presence of the weeds. He knows his patience will be rewarded at the harvest. The power and patience of God is demonstrated in Romans too, in the intercession of the Spirit who takes our muddled and mixed messages and turns them into prayer.

Bishop David M. O’Connell, C.M., invites faithful in the Diocese on pilgrimage to Poland

Bishop David M. O’Connell, C.M., is extending an invitation to the faithful of the Diocese to join him as he walks in the footsteps of St. John Paul II during a 14-day pilgrimage to Poland in 2015. Pilgrims will travel by motor coach to Warsaw, Czestochowa, Krakow and other cities in the late pope’s home country; enjoy a seven-day guided cruise along the canal which links the Rhine, the Main and the Danube rivers; and hear lectures, view folklore demonstrations, enjoy authentic ethnic dishes and attend daily Mass as they travel through towns integral to the late pope’s ministry from April 23 to May 6.

“A pilgrimage like this will focus on the spiritual,” said Father Jeffrey E. Lee, pastor, St. Mary Parish, Colts Neck, and diocesan director of pilgrimages. “By going to Poland with the Bishop, there is a connection to John Paul II, who was the Archbishop of Krakow.”

Father Lee noted that pilgrims will meet with religious leaders, celebrate Mass at holy shrines and continue their education of their Christian heritage as they visit sites along the Danube.
