Peace be with you! I pray that as you all set about this Sunday it is a joyous and blessed one that helps set the tone and course for your week ahead. To help set the tone and provide some reflection on the reading for Mass today I am including some resources below that I hope you will check out. It is always helpful to prepare for Mass by reading the readings ahead of time and reflecting but even if you have missed that opportunity today take a few moments to reflect on them and their meaning in your own life. Hopefully you will find some of these reflections by those much smarter than me helpful in your reflections. Todays Gospel is a beautiful one about our call to reach out beyond ourselves and our comfort zones and falls very much in line with the regular messaging we have been hearing from Pope Francis.
God Bless – Peace
