TWENTY-FIFTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME

Lk 16, 1-13

Jesus said to his disciples,
“A rich man had a steward
who was reported to him for squandering his property. 
He summoned him and said,
‘What is this I hear about you? 
Prepare a full account of your stewardship,
because you can no longer be my steward.’
The steward said to himself, ‘What shall I do,
now that my master is taking the position of steward away from me? 
I am not strong enough to dig and I am ashamed to beg. 
I know what I shall do so that,
when I am removed from the stewardship,
they may welcome me into their homes.’
He called in his master’s debtors one by one. 
To the first he said,
‘How much do you owe my master?’
He replied, ‘One hundred measures of olive oil.’
He said to him, ‘Here is your promissory note. 
Sit down and quickly write one for fifty.’
Then to another the steward said, ‘And you, how much do you owe?’
He replied, ‘One hundred kors of wheat.’
The steward said to him, ‘Here is your promissory note;
write one for eighty.’
And the master commended that dishonest steward for acting prudently.
“For the children of this world
are more prudent in dealing with their own generation
than are the children of light. 
I tell you, make friends for yourselves with dishonest wealth,
so that when it fails, you will be welcomed into eternal dwellings.
The person who is trustworthy in very small matters
is also trustworthy in great ones;
and the person who is dishonest in very small matters
is also dishonest in great ones. 
If, therefore, you are not trustworthy with dishonest wealth,
who will trust you with true wealth? 
If you are not trustworthy with what belongs to another,
who will give you what is yours? 
No servant can serve two masters. 
He will either hate one and love the other,
or be devoted to one and despise the other. 
You cannot serve both God and mammon.”

Once you reply to it the following message is sent to you:

“Thanks for your response, hope you’re good? I need to get iTunes gift cards for some patients battling cancer in the hospital but i currently can’t do that, can you please get that for me from any store around you now? I will reimburse you. Please message me back to know if you can help me with that. May the peace of the lord continue to be with you.”

FROM THE PASTOR'S DESK

“Walk by faith.” -- II Corynthians 5:7

Dear Parishioners,

Summer time! Things can get a little slower, a little warmer, a little more tiring under the hot, summer, sun. But not in Manville! Our Parish Calendar is filed with events, e.g.,

  • July 4th - Patriotic Rosary
  • July 8-12 - Summer Camp
  • July 14 - Feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel
  • July 16 – Patronal Parish Feast of Christ the Redeemer
  • July 23-27 – 51st Parish Summer Festival
  • August 5 - Altar servers and Children’s Choir Trip to Dorney Park
  • August 6 - Feast of Transfiguration of the Lord.
  • August 8-11 - Walking Pilgrimage to Our Lady of Czestochowa, Doylestown, PA.
  • August 15 - Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. (Holy Day of Obligation)
  • August 26 - Feast of Our Lady of Czestochowa
  • September 1 - Pilgrimage on bicycles and motorbikes to Our Lady of Czestochowa Doylestown, PA

These are the most significant and recognizable events that are helping our Parish in forging ahead as one faithful community. So, please help us in making all of the above activities a wonderful experience of faith, friendship and love.

This summer I look forward to our Parish Feast of Christ the Redeemer. On July 21st His Eminence, Cardinal Joseph Tobin Archbishop of Newark will be the main celebrant and homilist at the Eucharistic celebration at 10:00AM (Sacred Heart Church). On this day we want to pray and give thanks for the blessings our God has bestowed on His Church in Manville over the last 100 years. By remembering our past as the former Sacred Heart and Christ the King parishes, we celebrate our present as Christ the Redeemer Parish, and we look forward to our future, asking for God’s protection, guidance and blessings as we continue to build his Church. Please take note that there will be no 11:30AM Mass on that day. After the Mass ALL are invited to the light reception under the big tent next to the Sacred Heart Church.

We need your help! Especially we need your help before, during and after our 51st Summer Festival. We especially appeal to our younger adults to give us some help in the stands, with selling tickets or working in the kitchen! We also need help behind the scenes: e.g., setting up tables and chairs, cleaning the grounds and kitchens, etc. I urge you, please take an active role in this year’s 51st Parish Festival and volunteer by calling the Parish Office or registering online on parish website at CTRmanville.com.

Though our Sunday giving I’m grateful to those who “Took the step” and increased their Sunday contribution. These contributions REALLY make a difference. Besides the traditional way of giving at CTR Parish we also offer an online giving option. Please do not take a vacation from supporting your parish. With ConnectNow Giving you can contribute from wherever you are… you can even set up payments in advance if you like! Like yours, our monthly bills continue in the summer. Your on-line contributions help us to close a gap in our budget, even when attendance is low. Visit www.ctrmanville for the online giving link. Also, while you vacation you can stay engaged through our parish app and website. Enrich yourself with our weekly video reflections.

The CTR Parish is our mutual responsibility! As you are enjoying all that the summer season has to offer, please remember your Church. It never takes a season off and is always here for you. So please keep Christ the Redeemer Parish in mind during your summer travels.

I hope you encounter wonders as you wander; inspiration to go; and a deep sense of God’s love as you revel in God’s gift of creation.

May you travel and live in God’s Peace.

Fr.Stan
