FROM TODAY’S GOSPEL READING:
All were amazed and asked one another, “What is this? A
new teaching with authority. He commands even the
unclean spirits and they obey him.”
Join us for a once in a lifetime event at the World Meeting of
Families in Philadelphia on September 22-27, 2015. The theme
is “Love is Our Mission: The Family Fully Alive”. Families
from around the world will come together for prayer, speakers,
celebrations, and activities for all ages. All are welcome! Visit
the official World Meeting of Families website at:
WorldMeeting2015.org to learn more and to sign up for regular
updates on how you can participate.
Please Pray for the following:

anyone who is serving our country, please call the
Rectory and we can add them to the prayer list.

REFLECTION:
Who speaks to us with authority? Whose words, guide our
spirits and direct our energies? Is it the voice of Pope
Francis who expresses concern for the poor, the persecuted and the environment? Or, are we influenced by other
“authorities”. How much sway over us have political parties, blogs, editorials, the opinion of others, etc? We are
responsible to form our conscience according to God’s
authoritative word - but who and what helps us do that?
Also, please pray for those seeking jobs. Please call
the Rectory to add a name to this list.
PLEASE PRAY TO SUPPORT THOSE IN NEED
PRAYER IS AN EASY AND POWERFUL ACTION!
