Kommunicating Kerygma (ke·ryg·ma)
8th Sunday in Ordinary Time
February 26, 2017
At the time when Jesus lived, it was not uncommon for families to have servants. When the patriarch of the family died, he might leave one servant to two different sons. That servant had to divide his time and allegiance between both sons. This was not an easy task and would make Jesus’ teaching very interesting for the people of the day. When Jesus talks about loving one master and hating the other, he is not speaking of the affectionate kind of love which comes to mind when most westerners hear the word. Jesus would have used the term “love” as an expression of attachment or loyalty.

Stewardship Theme for Fall Treasure Pledge Appeal
–St. Matthias Stewardship Committee is pleased to announce the theme for the 2016 Fall Treasure Pledge appeal:
GRACE – GRATITUDE – GENEROSITY
Eighth Sunday in Ordinary
Saint Paul reminds us as baptized Christians, as those who have shared the Eucharist with one another, that we are “servants of Christ and stewards of the mysteries of God.” We are not to define ourselves by our age, ethnicity, gender, social status, work, vocation or avocation. Our primary self-understanding should be that of servants and stewards of the Lord and all that has been entrusted to us. Can we accept this self-understanding? Do we find it encouraging?
