THE YEAR OF MERCY

DECEMBER 8, 2015 -
NOVEMBER 20, 2016
 
 
In the coming Sundays we will be recognizing our “parish treasures”, which are the individuals that serve at the different ministries within Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church.  Last Sunday, we recognized those who are serving as Lectors and within the Children’s Liturgy of the Word.  This Sunday we would like to thank and recognize those serving within the Altar Servers, Sacristans and Ushers Ministry.  Thank you for your servant heart in being members of OLPH Ministries.
 
 
CCD classes are back in session. We ask all drivers to drive slow and follow traffic rules.  Let us all keep our children safe.  In addition, the road by the garage and carport will be coned which means drivers cannot make a left turn by the garage from 8 am to 10:30 am.  You either turn right or drive into the school ground and exit through the other gate by Room 8.  Thank you for your patience and understanding.
 
 
Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Parish is a faith-filled community for all cultures and ages dedicated to building the Kingdom of God. We come closer to God by following Jesus Christ through His Word and the Sacraments. Through the Holy Spirit and with the intercession of our Blessed Mother, we provide a sense of belonging to all God's people through prayer, service and the sharing of our gifts for the praise and glory of God.

21st Sunday in Ordinary Time

Jerusalem: The Narrow Gate
       In this Sunday’s gospel we hear that Jesus is on his way to Jerusalem when people ask him who will be saved.  His answer is not really what we would think it would be, that all people are saved.  Rather he challenges the people then as he does now and calls them to true and authentic discipleship.  “Strive to enter into the narrow gate, for many I tell you will attempt to enter but will not be strong enough.”  It’s important to know what Jesus tells the people this.  He is on his way to Jerusalem and we all know what happens there.  Jesus will be beaten, crucified, and killed.  The Cross of Christ becomes the narrow gate into which people will be saved.  So he is asking us, will you be able to accompany me to Jerusalem?  Will you help me carry my cross?  Will you stand with me as I am beaten, abused and cursed at?  Will you also allow Jesus to help you carry your crosses?
       Following Christ is not a prestigious thing after all.  It’s serious!  So we must become serious about practicing and living out our faith in Jesus.  The Second Reading from the Letter to the Hebrews talks about discipline.  We all know that discipline makes a person stronger in whatever it is that they are striving for.  So if we are striving for the Kingdom that is promised for us through the death and resurrection of Jesus, then we too need to be disciplined in the faith we profess.  The way to discipline ourselves is to faithfully “recline at table” with the Lord at the celebration of the Eucharist.  It is his body and blood that will help us to carry the crosses we have to carry and get us through that “narrow gate,” into the new and eternal Jerusalem.
