Kommunicating Kerygma (ke·ryg·ma)
30th Sunday in Ordinary Time
October 23, 2016
The Pharisees took their relationship with Yahweh seriously. It was their practice to go beyond what was normally required by the religious standards of the day, and to live out their relationship with Yahweh in their daily life. At the time of Jesus, the Pharisees were respected. However, after the destruction of the temple, they clashed with the Christian community. It is during this period that the gospels were compiled and this latter attitude toward the Pharisees is reflected throughout.
Stewardship Theme for Fall Treasure Pledge Appeal
The St. Matthias Stewardship Committee is pleased to announce the theme for the 2016 Fall Treasure Pledge appeal:
GRACE – GRATITUDE – GENEROSITY
Lord Jesus Christ, We serve in your name as did your apostles before us.
And we live, as they did, in anxious times, painfully aware of sin’s presence
in the world; a world in need of your Father’s mercy.
As your disciples, we also live in hope, confident that Your light is
breaking through the changing moods of life – healing, embracing
and transforming as your presence moves deep within us.
Help us see every hour of our lives as a moment of grace:
A time when we open our hearts to you in prayer,
discover your Truth in our work and leisure
and live each moment as blessings to one another.
Make us better stewards of the great wealth of gifts you have bestowed upon us.
Show us how to teach others to open their hearts to those who hunger, thirst or who are strangers.
Refresh our minds, renew our faith, and inspire us to proclaim your Gospel with a new energy in word and in deed
for you live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
