Cycles of Faith
33rd Sunday in Ordinary Time

As we edge closer to the closing of the liturgical year, the Church selects readings that remind us of the final close: the second coming of Christ.

Cycles of Faith
32nd Sunday in Ordinary Time

In 1 Samuel, God advises the prophet Samuel not to observe as men see but as God sees. He tells him to "look to the heart." This is the movement of this Sunday's Gospel reading. "Beware the scribes," Jesus advises. He points out their public greetings and "seats of honor," which stands in sharp contrast to their private greed.

Faithful Reflections

From Kim:

Singing in church helps me focus on the words and prayers. I partic- ularly love the Psalms. When they are sung, they thrill my heart. So join me in singing.
