Mass Readings – Christmas Season (St. John Neumann)

The first reading invites us to love one another in deed and in truth, putting our faith into practice as we recognize the needs of those around us and respond with the compassion of Jesus Christ.

Three Great Things

Fr. Andrew’s 16th Sunday of the Year Homily Podcast

There are moments in life when we need a little help.  We encounter situations and circumstances that are more than we can handle.  As Jesus looked upon the crowds in the Gospel today he saw their needs and took pity on them.  His response reminds us of two important considerations today:

  • What needs do we have today?  What are we asking for from the Lord?
  • Who needs help in our lives today?  How can we offer help to another?

Christ not only helped others, but he empowered the Apostles to do the same.  May we acknowledge our need for the Lord and respond to the needs of those who God sets before us.
