Ordinary Time, Not so Ordinary!

Dear friends in Christ, I hope your summer has been going well. That you are finding time to relax and be with family.

Since we have returned to Ordinary Time in our Liturgical Calendar, I have been thinking a lot about the Church. The Gospels have returned to sharing the story of Jesus' three years of public ministry, which was about “Proclaiming God's Kingdom to be at hand,” (Mt. 4:17) and drawing us to the Father, so that we can be one with Him as the Father and the Son are one. It was during these three years that Jesus laid the foundation for the Church. He called the Apostles to continue to lead the Church, following His example as the “Way, the Truth and the Life,” (Jn. 14:6), with the guidance of the Holy Spirit. The third person in the Holy Trinity, helps maintain the Truth, and bestows the necessary gifts and graces through the Sacraments to help us on our way. Now, 2000 years later, we are still striving to build the Kingdom of Heaven on earth, and remain faithful. However, this is not always easy.
