22nd Sunday of Ordinary Time

We’ve got events for ladies and for gents this week: Women’s Game Night and MANtenance Friday.  Plus, there are plenty of ways to get involved with Newman: sign up to be a liturgical minister, play on our intramural flag football team, go on our float trip, join the choir, come to Brainstorm…the list continues, so check out this week’s bulletin: Bulletin-2013-09-01

Next week begins our Sunday Catechesis series, starting with six weeks on the Human Person, Sex, and Marriage.  Here’s next Sunday’s Gospel reading to be considering throughout the week:

Luke 14:25-33

Great crowds were traveling with Jesus,
and he turned and addressed them,
“If anyone comes to me without hating his father and mother,
wife and children, brothers and sisters,
and even his own life,
he cannot be my disciple.
Whoever does not carry his own cross and come after me
cannot be my disciple.
Which of you wishing to construct a tower
does not first sit down and calculate the cost
to see if there is enough for its completion?
Otherwise, after laying the foundation
and finding himself unable to finish the work
the onlookers should laugh at him and say,
‘This one began to build but did not have the resources to finish.’
Or what king marching into battle would not first sit down
and decide whether with ten thousand troops
he can successfully oppose another king
advancing upon him with twenty thousand troops?
But if not, while he is still far away,
he will send a delegation to ask for peace terms.
In the same way,
anyone of you who does not renounce all his possessions
cannot be my disciple.”
