The Gates of Hell will not Prevail

Twenty-Fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time

A Christian is someone oriented to eternity.  He is not oriented to this world.
And that is why our Lord Jesus comes to us.
He comes to us in the Eucharist.  He comes to tell us, ‘Be Not Afraid.’

What do the People Think About Me?And he asked them, “But who do you say that I am?” Peter answered him,
“You are the Christ.”


Walk with One Foot in Eternity

The Commemoration of
All the Faithful Departed
(All Souls)

Reading:  WIS 3:1-9

Psalm:  PS 23:1-3a, 3b-4, 5, 6

Second Reading:  ROM 5:5-11

Gospel:  JN 6:37-40




The souls of the just are in the hand of God, and no torment shall touch them. They seemed, in the view of the foolish, to be dead; and their passing away was thought an affliction and their going forth from us, utter destruction. But they are in peace.
