11th Sunday After Pentecost 2022
This time is referred to as the Blessed Virgin Mary’s thirty days, because of the numerous feasts which honor her over the next month. Although she is given little respect by non-Catholics, she has been rightfully showered with praise by the saints, councils of the Church, and many others. We are taught by this Mass about the sacraments and mysteries of the Catholic Church, symbolized in the Gospel account. Our Lord came to save us by granting us His Holy Spirit and curing our deafness through the gift of Faith. We must pray from our hearts and keep our gaze on Heaven, our goal.
