Kommunicating Kerygma (ke·ryg·ma)
17th Sunday in Ordinary Time
July 30, 2017
This week’s Gospel text, along with the text from the two previous weeks, has given the reader the opportunity to reflect on a block of Jesus’ parables that take up almost the entire 13th chapter of Mathew’s Gospel. All of these parables were addressed to the crowds that came to hear Jesus’ teaching. However, the explanation of the meaning of the parables was reserved for the disciples.

Stewardship Theme for Treasure Pledge Appeal
–St. Matthias Stewardship Committee is pleased to announce the theme for Treasure Pledge appeal:
GRACE – GRATITUDE – GENEROSITY
Seventeenth Sunday in Ordinary Time
A profound stewardship prayer is offered by the young king Solomon in today’s first reading. He asks the Lord to give him an understanding heart, compassion towards God’s people and the insight to distinguish right from wrong. An understanding heart, or wisdom, is a gift from God. It is a gift that enables us to make good decisions and prudent choices. Cultivating and sharing this gift is essential, especially when poor decisions and lack of compassion have consequences that can adversely affect the lives of others. Do we exercise good stewardship over the gift of wisdom? Do we share our compassionate hearts with others?
