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

Twenty-third Sunday in Ordinary Time

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

  • How can you help the members of your family grow in faith? As a family, make a list of ways you can make your home a better reflection of God's love.
  • Jesus said that when two or more people come together in his name — he will be there. To help your family experience the power of praying together, pray the Lord's Prayer aloud in unison. Pause for a moment of silence. Invite family members to silently pray for one another. Close by thanking God for the gifts of faith and family.
  • Talk with your family about ways to correct someone and still stay friends. In today's Gospel Jesus suggested: 1. Talk with the person yourself. 2. Talk with the person with one or two others. 3. Tell someone in charge.
  • Work out a practical guide for resolving disagreements in your family. Write it down and post it where everyone can see it.
