13th Sunday in Ordinary Time
1st Reading: 1 Kings 19:16b, 19-21
2nd Reading: Galatians 5:1, 13-18
Gospel: Luke 9:51-62
“There are so many things to do.” “We have so little time.” How many variations of these statements have you heard or even said yourself? Actually neither statement is completely true. There are many things to do in this life, but really few things that are vitally important. Working, searching, conniving, and worrying our way to “gratify [ing] the desires of the flesh,” as Paul relates in today’s second reading, are really non-productive. So little time? When we take on the freedom that Christ offers us, we have all the time we need in this world, and even more in the next. Elisha, the prophet Elijah’s chosen servant, was slightly befuddled about what he should do. When Elijah called, he returned to bid farewell to his parents and provide food for his people. Only then did he follow. Jesus demands something different, something more of his disciples. He calls us to a single -minded determination to drop everything and follow him. Now, not later.

EVERYONE IS WELCOME!
What is the Holy Door?
The Holy Door or Porta Santa has been used since the fifteenth century as a ritual expression of conversion. But the door finds meaning only when the believer associates the door with Christ. Jesus is the Door.
Young Adults Seminar
Being Christ-like in the workplace is a challenge that all working Christians face. This seminar will focus on how to reconcile the way of Christ, with the ways of the world. So that in being a reflection of Jesus, we may bring others to Him.
