The Law of God
22nd Sunday In Ordinary Time
True observance of the Law of God, demands that we live a spirituality of involvement as Jesus did. The very term “Catholic” means “Universal”, which means inclusive of all. We welcome everyone to our Church and to our faith. The Catholic Church has always stood for unity, fought for the rights of the marginalized in the society, worked for peace, justice and equality for all. Today, more than ever before, there is an urgency to continue to live this spirituality of action, without ever compromising our Catholic moral values which are taught by Jesus.
On the occasion of Labor-day tomorrow, it is appropriate that we remember the involvement and the hard work of our ancestors in the building up of our nation. They shed their blood and sacrificed their lives working for peace, equality, economic stability and religious freedom for all. Today, we the present generation has a duty and obligation to preserve the same and to hand over these same values of peace, unity, equality, and religious freedom to the future generation.
Let us join hands in weeding out the evil-elements in our Church and pray for healing of the victims of abuses and for unity and peace in the Church.
