Twenty-second Sunday in Ordinary Time
On a sabbath Jesus went to dine at the home of one of the leading Pharisees,
and the people there were observing him carefully.
He told a parable to those who had been invited, noticing how they were choosing the places of honor at the table. “When you are invited by someone to a wedding banquet, do not recline at table in the place of honor. A more distinguished guest than you may have been invited by him,
and the host who invited both of you may approach you and say, ‘Give your place to this man,’ and then you would proceed with embarrassment to take the lowest place. Rather, when you are invited, go and take the lowest place so that when the host comes to you he may say, ‘My friend, move up to a higher position.’ Then you will enjoy the esteem of your companions at the table. For every one who exalts himself will be humbled, but the one who humbles himself will be exalted.” Then he said to the host who invited him, “When you hold a lunch or a dinner, do not invite your friends or your brothers or your relatives or your wealthy neighbors, in case they may invite you back and you have repayment. Rather, when you hold a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind; blessed indeed will you be because of their inability to repay you. For you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous.”…Lk 14: 1, 7-14

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”

We had a great time this week at Vacation Bible School! Thanks to everyone who helped make this year special! We especially thank those ministries who supplied a hot meal each night to the children and volunteers: Marian Servants of the Visitation, Catholic Daughters, Knights of Columbus, Rosary Altar Society, and Holy Ghost Dad's Club.
Through the children's generosity and t-shirt sales, we were able to donate
$350 to St. Vincent de Paul's Uniforms for Kids program. We look forward to doing this again next year! Have a safe and blessed summer!
