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

Thirty-first Sunday in Ordinary Time

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

  • Sit down as a household and talk about those people whom you consider least welcome in your house. Are they people against whom you have a prejudice? Neighbors whom you don’t like? Family members against whom you hold a grudge? Of others? Choose one name from this list and plan how to reconcile.
  • Invite family members to make special "welcome" placements for a simple supper you make. Invite people whom you know but haven't seen in a while to come to supper and share with them.
  • Read the newspaper together to see who in your community is rejected and hated, including prisoners, immigrants, and others. Become more aware of these people and if possible, help them feel welcome.
