Twenty-second Sunday after Pentecost - Nov. 10, 2019
In the Epistle (Phil. 1, 6-11) for the Twenty-second Sunday after Pentecost, the Church continues her mission of preaching the Gospel, awaiting the “return of the Lord”; it is her joy, as it was St. Paul’s, to see Christian life spread abroad in the world, and her desire to see it make progress in each one of us until the day of judgment.
In the Gospel for this Sunday (Matthew 22, 15-21) we are reminded that fulfilling our duties towards men does not mean that we should avoid anything of what we owe to God. (St.Andrew Missal)
Tomorrow is the feast of St. Martin of Tours who, while still a catechumen, shared his cloak with a poor man in want. His charity was rewarded by Our Lord.
