Welcome to Holy Ghost Catholic Church

Thirtieth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Jesus addressed this parable to those who were convinced of their own righteousness and despised everyone else. “Two people went up to the temple area to pray; one was a Pharisee and the other was a tax collector.


The Pharisee took up his position and spoke this prayer to himself, ‘O God, I thank you that I am not like the rest of humanity -- greedy, dishonest, adulterous -- or even like this tax collector. I fast twice a week, and I pay tithes on my whole income.’

But the tax collector stood off at a distance and would not even raise his eyes to heaven but beat his breast and prayed, ‘O God, be merciful to me a sinner.’ I tell you, the latter went home justified, not the former; for whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and the one who humbles himself will be exalted.”…Lk 18: 9-14

Jubilee Year of Mercy

The Jubilee Year of Mercy began December 8, 2015, the fiftieth anniversary of the closing of the Second Vatican Council.  Here are a few important themes for reflection during this important year:


Jesus is the “face” of the Father’s mercy

Mercy is “the beating heart of the Gospel”

Mercy “demands justice”
