This Week’s Gospel Message

Thursday, November 19th, 2020

This week’s Gospel message for Sunday, November 22nd is from Matthew 25:31-46.

“Jesus said to his disciples: ‘When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit upon his glorious throne, and all the nations will be assembled before him. And he will separate them one from another, as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. . .Come, you who are blessed by my Father. Inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. . .Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of the least brothers of mine, you did for me.’”

“Jesus spent his entire public ministry helping those in need: healing the sick, driving out demons, feeding thousands, washing his disciples’ feet, finally giving his life for our sins. But Jesus also asked the woman at the well to draw water for him, reclined at table and allowed Martha to serve him, and accepted the anointing with expensive perfumed oil by the woman in Bethany. Few of us are virtuous enough to care for the least among us all the time, in every circumstance. Christ is in us all, giver and recipient, and it is in acts of mercy between two people that he can be seen.” Source: Pastoral Patterns, Autumn 2020

St. Andrew Dũng-Lac, Priest & Martyr, and Companions, Martyrs (Memorial) – “In the sixteenth century, Christian missionaries went to Vietnam. From the seventeenth to nineteenth centuries, some 130,000 Christians were martyred. Some were foreign missionaries, but most were native Vietnamese people killed by their own government and people.
