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:

  • What can you do as a family of believers to show God that you love him with all your heart, soul, mind and strength? Brainstorm as a family and then act on those ideas.
  • How can you show that you love your neighbors as yourself? Brainstorm as a family and then act on those ideas.
  • How do you show love for each other as a family? Do something special together as a family (camping, traveling, game night) to reestablish your commitment to love one another unconditionally.
  • Memorize the Greatest and Second Commandments from this Scripture. Ask yourselves each day this week: Did I put anything before God today? Did I love God today with all my heart? All my soul? All my mind? All my strength? Did I love others? Did I love myself?
  • Pray the Lord’s Prayer. Be reminded that this is the prayer our intercessor, Jesus, taught us to pray. Pray it each day this week as a family.
