Eighth Sunday after Pentecost – July 10, 2016
Mass at 11:00. Readings: Deuteronomy 30:9-14; Psalm 25; Colossians 1:1-14; Luke 10:25-37. Pastor Wilbert Miller preaches and presides.
To love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, strength, and mind is to reflect God’s mercy in responding to one’s neighbor. That mercy found its most profound expression in the “gospel that has come to you” – namely the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. That gospel mercy comes to us again today: at the font, at the altar, and from the pulpit. It is very near to you.
Please keep in your prayers: Ellen Benton, Cory Bricco, Charlotte Cage, Peg Faulkner, Dolores Fernandez, Maria Jacobson, Diana Langer Marcus, Lawrence Lever, Bill Lutz, Susan Sterne McCann, Jytte Palumbo, Robert Radsch, Mike Rodriguez, Thorvald Slater, and Benjamin Weiner.

Traveling over the weekend? It’s important to rest our bodies and minds from the business of life. Summer is a natural time to make those necessary escapes from the city. However, don’t let your spiritual life take a back seat during this time! If you’re in the city during the weekdays, remember there’s a brief 25 minute Contemplative Mass every Wednesday at 6:30PM. Make time to center yourself in prayer, be nourished by the sacrament, and give thanks to God for all the blessings of this life.
