Seventeenth Sunday in Ordinary Time
In bargaining with God, Abraham demonstrates a real persistense in prayer. Jesus invites us to persist in prayer as well, to “ask…seek…knock”. May our prayer open us to God’s will, and so build up his strength within us. In baptism, we have died with Christ, and have been raised to life with him.
Greetings to you all,
The Gospel today presents the Lord's Prayer from the Gospel of Luke, but something seems wrong the first time we hear it. It's not the Our Father that we learned as children and that we pray each Sunday during Mass. No, that Our Father is found in the Gospel of Matthew.Read Fr. John Gerth's message in its entirety in today's bulletin!
