Sunday, September 17
Twenty-fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time
Gospel Mt 18:21-35


   Peter approached Jesus and asked him, "Lord, if my brother sins against me, how often must I forgive? As many as seven times?" Jesus answered, "I say to you, not seven times but seventy-seven times. That is why the kingdom of heaven may be likened to a king who decided to settle accounts with his servants.
   When he began the accounting, a debtor was brought before him who owed him a huge amount. Since he had no way of paying it back, his master ordered him to be sold, along with his wife, his children, and all his property, in payment of the debt. At that, the servant fell down, did him homage, and said, 'Be patient with me, and I will pay you back in full.' Moved with compassion the master of that servant let him go and forgave him the loan. When that servant had left, he found one of his fellow servants who owed him a much smaller amount. He seized him and started to choke him, demanding, 'Pay back what you owe.' Falling to his knees, his fellow servant begged him, 'Be patient with me, and I will pay you back.' But he refused. Instead, he had the fellow servant put in prison until he paid back the debt.
  Now when his fellow servants saw what had happened, they were deeply disturbed, and went to their master and reported the whole affair. His master summoned him and said to him, 'You wicked servant! I forgave you your entire debt because you begged me to. Should you not have had pity on your fellow servant, as I had pity on you?' Then in anger his master handed him over to the torturers until he should pay back the whole debt. So will my heavenly Father do to you, unless each of you forgives your brother from your heart."

Homily for 12th Sunday in Ordinary Time

   Life experiences can strengthen our faith in God.  A good number of years ago I was flying home from Chicago.  I got to O’Hare early and eventually boarded Delta fight 6182.  My seat assignment was 7B, but a family with a number of children wanted to sit together – so I offered to sit in seat 6B, which was an aisle seat.  6A was the window seat, and that was occupied by a little boy.
   When I sat down, the little boy was busy taking inventory of the contents of his big blue backpack.  He then turned to me and in a matter-of-fact fashion said, “You probably don’t’ know this, but this is my first trip by myself.”  He was all smiles.  I put my book down and said, “You mean your parents are not with you?” “No, they’re not” he said.  He then explained that his mom had brought him to the airport for the flight and made sure he got on the plane. 
   It turns out that my seat companion, Alexander, was 8 years old, and would start 3rd grade in the Fall.  He and his Mom and Dad and little sister live on a farm in Indiana.  I should also tell you that Alexander’s final destination was not New York.  It was Milan, Italy, where his maternal grandparents live.  His Mom is Italian, and she was sending him to spend the summer with her family.  Alexander spoke fluent Italian.

50th Ordination Anniversary Homily

     July in Rome can be very hot and humid. July 2, 1973, was no exception. With John and Tom who are here with me in the sanctuary, I started out from the North American College, making our way down the Gianiculum Hill, then taking a sharp left at the bottom onto a short street named after the Holy Spirit. Yes, we were on our way to the Basilica of St. Peter - that extraordinary church created by the genius of Bernini, Bramante, and Michelangelo among others. On that sultry July morning 16 members of our Class of 1973 gathered to be ordained priests of Jesus Christ by Bishop James Hickey, Rector of the North American College. This evening, almost 50 years later to the day, at the gracious invitation of my good friend, Fr. Michael Jones, we gather here in St. Mary Church, Greenwich, to celebrate 5 decades of my service as a priest of the Diocese of Bridgeport. In addition to all of you, I am so pleased that two close friends and classmates who walked to the Basilica with me that morning have joined us.

To our RCIA Candidates

Dear Parishioners of Saint Mary
     I am writing to express my deepest gratitude for the Stop & Shop gift cards you so generously provided to Corpus Christi Holy Rosary School families during the Lenten season. These cards will make a significant and positive impact in the lives of families who are experiencing financial difficulty caused mainly by inflation and higher cost of living.
     Jesus tells us “whatever you do for the least of my brothers and sisters you do it for me.” You can be assured that you will be blessed abundantly and that the good Lord will not let your kindness be forgotten.
     We greatly appreciate your support of our school and our mission to educate our students in the Catholic Faith and instill in them the love of God and country.
     You will be remembered in our daily prayers, and most especially during this holy Easter season.
                                                   Gratefully Sr. Lise Parent, FMA

A Letter of Thanks...

Children at Mass
Children in Mass are gifts, not distractions!

     But if a young child does become disruptive, which is natural, please be respectful of other parishioners and remove the child from church and feel free to return once it is appropriate. 
     Please do not let young children wander from the pew or run up and down aisles or through the Mary chapel alcove.  Also, if late for Mass, please do not proceed to the front of the church but instead occupy a pew closer to the rear.
     Consideration of others and reverence help to maintain a prayerful atmosphere for all.

Revised Liturgical Norms

   When the liturgical reforms of the second Vatican council were promulgated, the lives of many of the faithful were disrupted because they were neither informed nor prepared for the changes to come. As we look forward to the promulgation of our own revised liturgical norms, Bishop Caggiano is committed to avoiding that same mistake.  
   The Revised Liturgical Norms for the Diocese of Bridgeport will be promulgated on the first Sunday of Advent, December 2, 2018. Between now and then, we will embark on a comprehensive catechetical and communication strategy so that when the norms are made public, there is a more complete understanding of what we aim to do, namely, raise awareness of and commitment to a celebration of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass that is both faithful and universal.  
   In the video
here, Bishop Caggiano outlines the timeline for catechesis, makes the case for why we are revising the norms, and invites everyone to participate in this process.
