25th Sunday of Ordinary Time

Near and far, Newman has plenty going on this week.  If you’d like to get out of town, sign up for Shrine and Dine on Friday or the float trip on Saturday.  If you want to stick closer to campus, come play flag football on Monday or join in the movie night on Friday.  Also in the news: our first swing dance lesson of the year was so successful, we’re doing it again!  Save the date for October 11 and bring some friends; the more the merrier and no experience is needed.  Read all about these events and more – as well as an overview of Pope Francis’ new and often-misquoted 12,000-word interview – in this week’s bulletin: Bulletin-2013-09-22

Next week’s Gospel: 26th Sunday of Ordinary Time/September 29, 2013

Luke 16:19-31

Jesus said to the Pharisees:
“There was a rich man who dressed in purple garments and fine linen
and dined sumptuously each day.
And lying at his door was a poor man named Lazarus, covered with sores,
who would gladly have eaten his fill of the scraps
that fell from the rich man’s table.
Dogs even used to come and lick his sores.
When the poor man died,
he was carried away by angels to the bosom of Abraham.
The rich man also died and was buried,
and from the netherworld, where he was in torment,
he raised his eyes and saw Abraham far off
and Lazarus at his side.
And he cried out, ‘Father Abraham, have pity on me.
Send Lazarus to dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue,
for I am suffering torment in these flames.’
Abraham replied,
‘My child, remember that you received
what was good during your lifetime
while Lazarus likewise received what was bad;
but now he is comforted here, whereas you are tormented.
Moreover, between us and you a great chasm is established
to prevent anyone from crossing who might wish to go
from our side to yours or from your side to ours.’
He said, ‘Then I beg you, father,
send him to my father’s house, for I have five brothers,
so that he may warn them,
lest they too come to this place of torment.’
But Abraham replied, ‘They have Moses and the prophets.
Let them listen to them.’
He said, ‘Oh no, father Abraham,
but if someone from the dead goes to them, they will repent.’
Then Abraham said, ‘If they will not listen to Moses and the prophets,
neither will they be persuaded if someone should rise from the dead.'”
