Readings and Homilies for November 2-3, 2019 (English and Español)

On the weekend of November 2-3, 2019, the 31st Sunday in Ordinary Time, we heard the story Zacchaeus the tax collector, who climbed a tree to get a better view of Jesus and was invited into relationship with Him. Fr. Mark's homily reminds us that we all long for a personal encounter with Jesus, but that, like Zacchaeus, we need to take initiative. Grace is a free gift, but we need to choose to accept it!

    Praise God, Michelle, and thank you for sharing! If you would like to talk further about any of these issues -- or any other questions you may have -- please let me know. I am happy to talk with you myself, connect you with Fr. Mark, or refer you to other people or resources as needed. Wherever God is leading, may you have the courage to follow! -- Jim Thorp, [email protected]

    I was raised Catholic, but wrestled a lot with some of the practices and some of the hurts that were being revealed. In my 20s I gained my faith and trust in Jesus... and I'm not so far from 50 now. I had wonderful conversations in my late 20s with my Grandmother. She was satisfied when I told her my reasons for attending my church. I finally felt like I was learning about God and Jesus and I wanted more. She passed many years ago and I have her eulogy. Recently, I've had a stirring to understand what the Catholic church believes differently. What books are in their Bible vs mine, and I've been very curious about the concept of purgatory. So, I decided to Google Catholic Churches near me. I found your website and listened to the homily from this past weekend. Clearly the Lord lead me to this... and I wanted to share this with you.
