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-second Sunday in Ordinary Time

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

  • The parable in this week’s Gospel tells us to be ready. Have a family discussion about getting ready for a trip. Discuss all the preparation needed for taking a family trip. Then talk about being ready for Jesus’ coming. What can you do to get ready for the coming of Jesus into your life?
  • Gather the family together for a family meeting. Focus on how your family can keep the door open for the coming of God into your household? Start by discussing ways that family members can be more patient with each other.
  • Create a journal with enough blank pages for one week. For each day of the coming week, write down one thing that you can do to prepare for Jesus’ coming into your life.
  • For family prayer one day this week gather together in a circle and hold hands. Ask each family member to share one thing he or she needs to do to prepare for Jesus’ coming into his or her life. Conclude by praying the Lord’s Prayer together.
