12th Sunday in Ordinary Time Reflection by Msgr. Hynes

Posted in by

Wearing of the green (vestments)! This Sunday, ordinary time appears visible in green. The weekly scripture passages originate from the Cycle A Readings:  St. Matthew’s Gospel and for a few weeks, St. Paul’s Letter to the Romans. Each week a unique first reading from the Old Testament connects to the Gospel passage and the Responsorial Psalm provides a response to the first reading; the structured integrity of the Liturgy of the Word focuses listener and preacher alike to “hear” the Gospel.

Pentecost Sunday Bulletin Reflection by Father Rex Pillai

The well-known French writer Jean-Paul Sartre once wrote a strange play and gave it a suitable title: No Exit. In his play, Sartre wanted to explore a real human feeling—the agony of human beings who feel trapped in the midst of life. He creates three characters that arrive in hell. The place consists of a large sitting room with mirrors around the walls. The room has no exit and the three people are on stage all the time since they are condemned to spend eternity together without leaving the room.
