Eighteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time –
During this coming week let us re-evaluate our life. What is it that is most important to me? Do I need the horns and drums and whistles of popular religion to convince me or can I realize the presence of God in all that I do? Can I come to church and pray with the community without asking what’s in it for me? What am I going to get out of it? We will only receive what we put into it.
