8th Sunday After Pentecost 2014
This week has the beautiful feasts of St. Dominic, Our Lady of the Snows, the Transfiguration and St .John Vianney. Man by nature has the need to be religious and bind himself to that which is greater, namely God the Creator. For Catholics this is enhanced as we are bound to God our Father. For these reasons and because of God’s own commandment we must worship Him publicly and should not permit anything to prevent us from attending Mass on Sundays and Holydays of obligation. Real men sacrifice all for family and are willing to do the same for Almighty God. St. Augustine said it famously, “Lord, you have made us for Yourself and our hearts are restless until they rest in Thee”.
