06/09 - The Paradise of the Mass
Eleventh Sunday in Ordinary Time
Sunday, June 13, 2021
Background on the Gospel Reading
After Lent, the Easter season, and three Sundays of feast days—Pentecost, Most Holy Trinity, and Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ—the Church returns to Ordinary Time. This Sunday’s Gospel from Mark carries a significant message regarding faith and the Kingdom of God.
I, the Lord, bring low the high tree and lift high the lowly tree.
They that are planted in the house of the Lord shall flourish in the courts of our God.
2 Corinthians 5:6–10
The lives of all are to be revealed before the tribunal of Christ.
The reign of God is like a mustard seed.

Are You Coming or Going?
Do you ever wonder if you are coming or going? Most of us have the sense sometimes that life is too hurried, harried, and unfocused. We pause at the end of a day or a week and are not sure what just happened, or if any of it mattered. We need a source of peace and purpose to lead us to what is most important and give us greater meaning in life. In the Eucharist, we come and go in a different way.
SMOY Fest 2021
Although the Eucharist appears to be simple bread and wine, it is actually the "source and summit" of the Christian life. Presence: The Mystery of the Eucharist explores the truth and beauty of Christ's real presence in the Eucharist, from its origins in Sacred Scripture, to its profound role in the life of the Church and her members. It is the crescendo of the entire story of salvation.
