14th Sunday after Pentecost 2018
The Epistle and Gospel for the 14th Sunday after Pentecost make as clear as black and white the battle between good and evil. We must renounce our vices and not let anything stand in the way of our progress towards God and Heaven. As we can fall by degrees from faults, to venial sins and finally mortal ones, so we can rise by degrees to sanctity. Today is the day to start on the road to holiness.
