Sixteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time
Abraham, the just and upright man, graciously hosts three visitors. As Mary and Martha host Jesus, he speaks of onlyone thing as necessary for us who follow him: being open to receive the message and person of Jesus, and being receptive to the “mystery of Christ” as he comes to us through one another.
Greetings to you all!
It’s become kind of a personal tradition that at some point during the summer I stop and thank all of the people who actually keep the parish going every day. People who are as welcoming as Abraham is of the strangers in the first reading, and as attentive as Mary and Martha are (each in their own ways) to the needs of Jesus in the Gospel. Read Fr. John Gerth's message in its entirety in today's bulletin!
