August 11 ~ Nineteenth Sunday of Ordinary Time
“Do not be afraid any longer, little flock, for your Father is pleased to give you the kingdom…… where your treasure is, there also will your heart be.” Given the statistics of weekly Mass attendance, it seems that, tragically, we are truly a “little flock”. Why do we overlook the gifts that God gives us at each Mass? Giving thanks to God with this faith community at Mass should be a real priority. The question arises, then, do we really treasure the gift of faith and especially the sacraments of Eucharist and Reconciliation?
