My Dear Friends,
This weekend, Catholic Christians celebrate the Sixth Sunday in Ordinary Time. In the selection we have today from St. Paul’s First Letter to the Corinthians, we read, “Whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do everything for the glory of God. Avoid giving offense, whether to the Jews or Greeks or the church of God, just as I try to please everyone in every way, not seeking my own benefit but that of the many, that they may be saved. Be imitators of me, as I am of Christ” (1 Cor 10: 31 – 11:1).
Catholic Christians also celebrate World Day of Marriage this Sunday, a day to celebrate the sacrament of matrimony. For all those who are married, congratulations and best wishes on your vocational journeys!
This Sunday, we also celebrate World Day of the Sick. Not only do we remember all of those who are ill, but we also celebrate the work of those who treat the sick and those who care for the sick.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
– Father Bob
