14th Sunday in Ordinary Time Yr. A
Sung Mass 11.00am
Good morning and welcome to our Mass today. There is Mass on Tuesday and Wednesday. Mass will be said in Assisi for the parish later this week by one of the Brothers of St Francis of Assisi.
The Readings today are full of hope. Hope, freedom and peace cannot be received free. There is always a cost and a sacrifice to own them, as the prophets taught. Even the humanist or the atheist will tell you that the cost of peace or freedom always asks something great of ourselves. For some Freedom means the cost of life and for others, if they even care enough, the cost of time and energy and the mind. Jesus Christ knew the cost of life and offers to share our daily crosses. Most may indeed be indifferent, yet the call to Life is there. Christ takes the burden of our cross upen himself freely, but our response must be whole hearted in love.
