17th Sunday after Pentecost 2017
The Church begins to prepare us for the end of the liturgical year with this Mass which reminds us of judgment. The Gospel gives the great commandments of the Law: love of God and neighbor, and the importance of faith in God Incarnate. St. Paul reminds us to express our charity by promoting peace. The enemy to all this is the devil which the Collect prays that we avoid his evil influences.
