Sixteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Reflection on today's readings:
All three readings today challenge us to be
patient. That's a tall order for a culture
immersed in satellite dishes, fax machines,
mobile phones, the Internet, and compact
discs filled with volumes of information.
Often we are in such a hurry that we don't
take the time to look at all the aspects of a
situation. Our hurry causes us to judge
quickly. We may judge other people, or
judge a case, coming to the conclusion
that it does not warrant our time,
Patience, however, gives us time to do
God's work among the wheat and the
weeds. Rather than appraise the weeds as
evil and lost causes, we are shown by
God's example to wait patiently and
lovingly for the final judgment that
belongs to God alone.

One of the large skylights over the
mosaic tile area on the right hand side of
the church sprung a major leak that did
some interior damage. A new skylight
has been ordered and until then the area
has been sealed. Once the skylight is
installed there will also need to be some
re-coating of the flat roof area
surrounding it.
September 29th. There will be a
Committee meeting on Wednesday,
