Ordinary Time

For a large part of the liturgical year, we devote ourselves to listening to the mystery of Christ in all its aspects unfolded as we seek God's truth and understanding.

Activity of the Week

Eleventh Sunday in Ordinary Time

Choose one of the following activities as a way to further reflect on the Sunday readings:

  • Plant a seed and watch it grow. Do your part in nurturing that growth. Marvel at how the life force that God gave it controls its destiny. Give it time and patience to come to its fullness. Reflect on how the Kingdom of God is at work in you and the world.
  • Make a list of the earthly possessions that mean the most to you. Now make a list of ways that you mimic Jesus and the Apostles to build the Christian that you are. Which list is most important to you?
  • Find examples of people in the news or saints you admire who are working with Jesus’ teachings to help build the Kingdom of God. What can you say or do to get yourself on your list?
