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

Thirtieth Sunday in Ordinary Time

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

  • In today’s Gospel, blind Bartimaeus is healed. Take a walk outside with your family. What do you see? For what do you want to thank God?
  • Think about your family. Decide how the Lord has brought strength out of a weakness in your family. Does someone in your family need special help? How has this helped to bring out the best in your family?
  • Review with your family the Corporal Works of Mercy. Have them select one or two of these to carry out this week: Feed the hungry - Give drink to the thirsty - Clothe the naked - Visit the imprisoned - Shelter the homeless - Visit the sick - Bury the dead.
  • What would you say if Jesus asked you, “What do you want me to do for you?”
