Nineteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

 Jesus tells us not to be afraid; God is pleased to bring the kingdom to us. Yet, Jesus’ message sounds ominous in metaphor.  How do we deal with the seemingly contradictory pronouncements?  And how did a thief get to be included in the parable?  The thing to remember above all, is that Jesus calls us to have faith that what God has set in motion will come to fruition.  That’s not so scary!    Mass begins at 9:00 a.m. Please log in at least five minutes prior to the start so we can let you into the Zoom room.  The worship aid for August 7 is here.

Peace and all blessings,

Rev. Kate Lehman, OSB

St. Teresa of Ávila is united with many other authentic Catholic faith communities as a member of the Ecumenical Catholic Communion (ECC).  The ECC is a "community of communities" that share a common theology and liturgical tradition with the Roman Catholic Church, but do not participate in its canon law.

The "ECC Difference" can be seen in the inclusion of all baptized Christians at the Eucharistic table, respect for and recognition that the Spirit is at work in those of other religions, ordination of women and married individuals, offering of the sacrament of marriage to committed LGBT couples and those remarrying after divorce, invitation to follow conscience regarding birth control, and active/equal involvement of the laity in the governance of the Communion.
