The Thirteenth Sunday of Ordinary TimeFr. John Gerth
Because of sin, sickness and death have entered the world, but are overcome through the resurrection of Jesus. He hears the cry of those in need, healing the sick and raising the dead to life. He made himself poor that we might become rich.

Greetings to you all!
Today's first reading is from the Book of Wisdom. The passage is tremendously important, addressing some of our deepest questions: “Why does Death exist?” and “Did God make death?” The Book of Wisdom says that God did not create death, nor is He happy about it. All that He created was meant to be wholesome, not containing destructive forces.
