Welcome to St. Ambrose ! We are so glad you are able to join us today to celebrate the Thirtieth Sunday in Ordinary Time.
BALANCE: Today’s scriptures emphasize the fundamental link between love of God and love of our neighbors, especially those who are most in need. Love of God should compel us to love the people whom God cherishes. Conversely, work for justice and charity for those in need should be rooted in our love of God.
That connection and balance, however, isn’t always easy to maintain in our lives. Even in religious orders we find that some Christians are more oriented toward contemplation and prayer, while others are more active in reaching out to those who are oppressed. Today Jesus reminds us of the necessity for both in the life of faith.
Open your heart to see God’s presence in the ordinary moments of life and be grateful for the many blessings that He sends you each day. Go out and make it a great week!
