The Solemnity of All Saints

Sunday, November 1, 2020

The Solemnity of All Saints Matthew 5:1-12 Jesus teaches what it means to be happy. Every year the Church recalls the example, witness, and prayer of the holy women and men who have been identified by the Church as Saints. These saints are more than just role models; they are family members with whom we continue to share relation, in a bond of prayer, called the Communion of Saints.

30th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Sunday, October 25, 2020

Matthew 22:34-40 The Pharisees continue to test Jesus with a question about the greatest commandment. This week’s Gospel follows close behind the Gospel read last Sunday.

28th Sunday in Ordinary Time Matthew 22:1-14 (shorter form Matthew 22:1-10) Jesus compares the kingdom of heaven to a wedding feast.
