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

Thirteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

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

  • Prayer helps us to hear God’s whispering words of love, encouragement and Jesus’ invitation to follow him. As a family, talk about those things that get in the way of taking time out for prayer each day.
  • Ask each member of the family what they would like to be when they are older and why that particular field interests them. Talk about college or other training they will need to accomplish their goal and what they can start doing now as the first steps toward that goal. Talk about how prayer will pay a role in their choices.
  • By virtue of our Baptism, we are called to be followers of Jesus. Have the family recall events from the past year that reminded each of you of your baptismal call to follow Jesus. As a family, evaluate how you did during that event and what you could have done differently to show your commitment to following Jesus.
  • Jesus freely offered his life to show us his love for God and us. Have a family discussion about what you are willing to do this week to show Jesus you love him.
