Twenty-ninth Sunday in Ordinary Time

October 22, 2017

“Repay to Caesar what belongs to Caesar, and to God what

belongs to God.” — Matthew 22:21

 

 

POWER STRUGGLE

 

Power struggles occur on every level of society, from the world stage to relationships at work, to our own homes. We struggle for position in the hierarchy of power: Who has power over whom? How do they wield it? What is the source of that power? What is the healthy response?

 

In this Sunday’s Gospel reading the Pharisees engage Jesus in a power struggle over whether Jews should show tribute to Caesar by paying taxes. Jesus’ response puts this and every struggle for power into perspective. In harmony with the words of Isaiah and Paul, Jesus teaches us that God is the ultimate source of all power—the power of earthly rulers, the Pharisees, Jesus, the Church, and the power within ourselves.


ATTENTION ALL PARISIONERS

 

During the recent mail-outs and phone calls being made to our parishioners, we have discovered many of the addresses and phone numbers for our families are incorrect or disconnected. In order to better our database, we are asking all parishioners to update their family record with the office. If you have recently moved, disconnected, or changed phone numbers, please contact the office to update this information. It is important that we have the most current and updated information; so that all of our families are receiving the proper correspondences. If you are not registered and wish to be, you may fill out a blue registration card in the foyer of the church and place in the collection basket or return it back to the office. Please keep in mind that because you have been “coming for years” does not mean you are registered. If you have any questions you may contact the office at 956-723-5215. We thank you for your help in this endeavor.
