Fourteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time
July 8, 2012

TODAY (Green) Ez 2:2-5, Cor 12:7-10, Mk 6:1-6

NEXT WEEK (Green) Am 7:12-15, Eph 1:3-14, Mk 6:7-13

Where does a prophet have honor? Where is a prophet heard? Not among kin or in familiar surroundings; not among those who lack faith. To have faith, we must be familiar with Jesus. The very stumbling block for the people in the gospel is the necessary stepping stone to hear Jesus’ word and accept him. Faith filled familiarity frees us to see ourselves as we are {those in need of Jesus) and to see Jesus as he truly is (a prophet with power to save).

Commit yourself to God—and the stewardship way of life. Give thanks for all your God-given gifts. Serve God with your time, talent and treasure. Tithing provides a regular, predictable source of funding. This reduces the need for constant fund raising activities and frees time and energy for other responsibilities of Christian life. Give with a loving, generous heart. “Store up for yourselves treasures in heaven…. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”Mt 6:20-21
Your giving is the key to the success of the church plans and programs. To help us meet our obligations, please pray about TITHING and becoming GOOD STEWARDS by obtaining Offertory Envelopes (available in the Marian Hall) as a weekly reminder to support your church.

God of all goodness, look with love on those who wait for the safe return of their loved ones who serve in the armed forces of their country. In faith and hope we turn to you for comfort.
