17th Sunday after Pentecost 2020
The Epistle for today points us to the Catholic Church which we are blessed to have. It has the one true Faith and a unity of belief, worship, sacraments and hierarchy. Christ gave us this as a means of fulfilling the two great commandments of love which He repeats in the Gospel for this Sunday. In this kingdom we learn to speak the language of love so that we will be fluent when we reach heaven. We must prepare now for our death which will usher us into heaven. Pride is the obstacle and we have time now to remove this from our spiritual life.
