Justice and Mercy
Dear friends in Christ,
In today’s Gospel, Jesus told three parables. Two seemed easy to understand; one was confusing for the disciples. After Jesus spoke to the public, they went into the house, and there, in the intimacy of their community, the disciples asked Jesus to explain one parable: the one about the wheat and the weed. Jesus explained it in a simple and clear way. In one sense, it is not hard to understand, and yet, it still causes us to struggle: why is there evil? Why do we find good people and evil people everywhere? And even more, why are we sometimes good and sometimes bad? Why are we capable of such great things and sometimes, sadly, of evil actions?
Eucharistic Adoration—Every Thursday
Have you thought about making a weekly commitment to Eucharistic Adoration? The hours for Adoration have been extended until 10 pm. More than 30 parishioners have committed to an hour of adoration every week. We could use a few more at Noon and 6 p.m. Commitment forms can be found on the bulletin board at the southwest entrance to the church.
