15th Sunday in Ordinary Time

 Being Sent
Jesus sends the Twelve - two by two - on their mission to preach the Kingdom.  He does this for a reason.  Not only do we need to place our trust in God - we also need to place our trust in one another.  This is a job that we cannot accomplish alone. We need each other for support and protection. We are responsible not only for the Word of God, but for one another as well. This is an important fact for us to remember - especially in the politically-charged atmosphere in which we live today.  If we are truly committed to Christ and the Good News we are sent to proclaim, perhaps a change in our patterns of living and thinking, and a cutting out of “excess baggage” will speak more clearly the message we are sent to preach..

Petition to Reinstate Rev. Roy Bourgeois

A Petition to Reinstate Rev. Roy Bourgeois

PLEASE SEND TO YOUR BISHOP AND ROME

The Corpus Executive Council is very pleased to present this petition for reinstating Rev. Roy Bourgeois — who is being unjustly punished for preaching at a woman’s ordination. He told the Vatican that it was against his conscience to say that he did not believe in the ordination of women. Because Corpus is on record for favoring the restoration of a married priesthood in the Western Church, and for reviving the ordination of women in the Catholic Communion of Churches, we ask Pope Francis to follow the majority of Catholics who stand in solidarity with Rev. Bourgeois.

Making Sense of Man’s Inhumanity to Man
by Hank Mattimore

If one of the major tasks of old age is to make sense of life, I flunk.

For starters I can’t begin to comprehend the isolation, the loneliness the rejection that drove a young man to plan and execute the brutal murder of 17 human beings, most of them his own peers. My eight decades of life experience can’t tell me why.

Like so many of us, the word “disheartened” comes to mind. Our humanity is sickened, “dis-heartened” as though our hearts have been murdered along with the victims.

We cope in different ways when we hear of yet another school massacre. We rage at the greed of our elected representatives who are selling their very souls for the filthy lucre of campaign money.

We shed tears for the victims and their families and yes, for ourselves because allowing the killing of our children to happen poisons the air we breathe, casts a dark cloud of sadness and despair over our lives.
