Today is the fifteenth Sunday after the Pentecost. Today’s lessons emphasize our role on earth being characterized by the ability to discern and forgive. Use your head to further the mission of the Gospel because the heart sometimes does not want to forgive. The memory Sept. 11, 2001 still carries much hatred in many.
Pray for Shari and Francis Helfrich, Pat Blistan, Ethel Moschak, Natalie Gardner, Dorothy Tokarski, Eugene Borio, Darlene Hoffman, Sara Margo, Judi Strini, Barb Cotton, Alice Skirda, Carol Deily, Kristen Hughes, Marti Krause, Lois Thomas and Marjorie Hager. Jennifer and Ian Hardisky are expecting a sibling for son Paul.
