Nineteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

“At once Jesus spoke to them, ‘Take courage, it is I; do not be afraid.’”Mt.14:27

In this time of uncertainty and death, we are afraid. We are looking for Christ and hoping He will save us. Have we taken courage and kept God’s commandments? Do we want Jesus’ forgiveness and mercy, and not change our ways? Do we have the courage to live Christ’s ways and have faith that He will reward us? Oh we of little faith, change our way! Power, Prestige, Popularity is not God’s way. That is putting ourselves first not God and others. Have courage and be not afraid!

The parish mission takes its origin from Jesus’ mission who was … to bring good news to the poor. …to proclaim release to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to let the oppressed go free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor. (Luke 4: 18-19) Our parish has defined this for us in our “Mission Statement”: They devoted themselves to the teaching of the Apostles and to the communal life, to the breaking of the bread and the prayers. (Acts 2:42)
