30th Sunday in Ordinary Time (Oct. 26th)

We obey the commandment to love our neighbor as ourselves when we practice good stewardship-joyfully sharing our talents, time, and resources to meet the needs of our neighbor.

Families and the Gospel

In today’s gospel the Pharisee was talking about commandments (something we are forced to obey by external pressure) and Jesus was talking about love (an internal exhortation to give our heart, soul and mind to another).  One demands allegiance, the other requires personal commitment. In our families we daily lay down our life for each other not because we “gotta” but because love compels us.

“Whoever sacrifices to any god, save to the Lord only, shall be utterly destroyed.”


                                                             Exodus 22: 20


Do you put other “gods” before God? Is your love of money, power, status or some personal possession greater than your love for God? If so, you may want to pay attention to the scripture reading because you are not going to like the outcome. The good news – it’s not too late to put God first in your life.
