Twenty-Third Sunday in Ordinary Time: Deaf Hear and Mute Speak!
The Deaf Hear and the Mute Speak!
Have you ever witnessed miraculous healing? Was it a friend, teammate, family member, or even yourself?
God wants us healed! He wants all of his creation whole again! Signs of healing and wonders would accompany the Messiah, the Old Testament prophets affirmed: the blind would see, the deaf would hear, and the lame would leap! When Jesus began his miraculous healings, many believed that this was indeed the evidence that he was the chosen one, the Son of God.
Watch this short video below from
from our new series Catholicism 101, to learn more about how God is offering the gift of healing to us all:
"Confession is nothing but humility in action."
St. (Mother) Teresa of Calcutta
Questions for Additional Reflection:
Have you ever witnessed miraculous healing?
Reflect on the last time you went to Confession. What were the benefits for you?
Do you believe that God wants you to be healed fully? Why or why not?
LABOR DAY 2021
On this weekend, when we rest from our usual labors, loving Father, we pray for all who shoulder the tasks of human labor—in the marketplace, in factories and offices, in the professions, and in family living. We thank you, Lord, for the gift and opportunity of work; may our efforts always be pure of heart, for the good of others and the glory of your name. We lift up to you all who long for just employment and those who work to defend the rights and needs of workers everywhere. May those of us who are now retired always remember that we still make a valuable contribution to our Church and our world by our prayers and deeds of charity. May our working and our resting all give praise to you until the day we share together in eternal rest with all our departed in your Kingdom as you live and reign Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen.
