The weather’s cooling and midterms are finishing but Newman continues to have plenty of events. The kitchen is available for baking and, if it’s chilly outside, chances are there’s a fire and studying happening in the lobby.
Learn during the week and relax this weekend. Learn about the universal call to serve and enjoy shepherd’s pie at this month’s Faith and Food Thursday night; learn about Eucharistic miracles on Friday night. Then dress up (if you want) and dance the night away at our fall dance, complete with dessert contest and costume theme. Read more in this week’s bulletin: Bulletin-2013-10-20
30th Sunday in Ordinary Time/October 27, 2013:
Jesus addressed this parable
to those who were convinced of their own righteousness
and despised everyone else.
“Two people went up to the temple area to pray;
one was a Pharisee and the other was a tax collector.
The Pharisee took up his position and spoke this prayer to himself,
‘O God, I thank you that I am not like the rest of humanity —
greedy, dishonest, adulterous — or even like this tax collector.
I fast twice a week, and I pay tithes on my whole income.’
But the tax collector stood off at a distance
and would not even raise his eyes to heaven
but beat his breast and prayed,
‘O God, be merciful to me a sinner.’
I tell you, the latter went home justified, not the former;
for whoever exalts himself will be humbled,
and the one who humbles himself will be exalted.”
