TWENTY-NINTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME

Mk 10:35-45
James and John, the sons of Zebedee, came to Jesus and said to him,
"Teacher, we want you to do for us whatever we ask of you."
He replied, "What do you wish me to do for you?"
They answered him, "Grant that in your glory
we may sit one at your right and the other at your left."
Jesus said to them, "You do not know what you are asking.
Can you drink the cup that I drink
or be baptized with the baptism with which I am baptized?"
They said to him, "We can."
Jesus said to them, "The cup that I drink, you will drink,
and with the baptism with which I am baptized, you will be baptized;
but to sit at my right or at my left is not mine to give
but is for those for whom it has been prepared."
When the ten heard this, they became indignant at James and John.
Jesus summoned them and said to them,
"You know that those who are recognized as rulers over the Gentiles
lord it over them,
and their great ones make their authority over them felt.
But it shall not be so among you.
Rather, whoever wishes to be great among you will be your servant;
whoever wishes to be first among you will be the slave of all.
For the Son of Man did not come to be served
but to serve and to give his life as a ransom for many."

FROM THE PASTOR'S DESK

Dear Friends,

“But grow in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory now and to the day of eternity. Amen.” 2 Peter 3: 18

I want to reflect with you in the words of the Apostle Peter and how we are encouraged by the scripture to grow as Disciples of Christ.

The word “Grow” means to increase, to excel. Growth is not an event; it is a process. Salvation is an event, but growth is a process. When I reflect on this scripture, I see that the word “grow” is a command. It is not an option. I believe that as Christians we are to keep on growing. Now this process of growing takes a double direction, one is to grow in Grace and the other is to grow in Knowledge. Both the grace and the knowledge have a connection with Jesus Christ. So, that’s the goal! To grow Jesus Christ in Us! Now, the question is: How do we grow in grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ?

If we are going to grow, it must be our passion. It cannot be something that we give attention just once a week. We need to work at becoming more spiritually mature. This is not something that comes naturally. We never fully arrive at perfection in the Christian life, but if we continue to grow, we will never be static either.

With summer behind us we are back on track with various ministries and committees once again being busy with pastoral work. By now our Religious Education program is in full swing and I want to thank all who have volunteered as catechists. I’m positive that it will be a great year!

Because we will not be getting a replacement for Fr. Marcin who was transferred to Argentina, the Summer schedule has become the year-round schedule. All Mass intentions already scheduled are being said on the day they were scheduled. Thank you for understanding and cooperation.

All are invited on Sunday, October 14th to celebrate 25th Anniversary of Ordination of Fr. Bogie Augustyn at the Sacred Heart Worship Site at the 10AM Mass and the 11:30AM Mass with a reception sponsored by the Redemptorist Fathers at Christ the King School at 1:30PM.

I invite you to make plans to grow your spiritual life, to come with your family, friends, relatives and coworkers and join Sunday Eucharist or any other group of our congregation.

Come Grow with Us
