Twentieth Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year C. | Opening Prayer:

Almighty God, ever-loving Father,
Your care extends beyond the boundaries of race and nation
To the hearts of all who live.
May the walls, which prejudice raises between us,
Crumble beneath the shadow of your outstretched arm.
We ask this through Christ our Lord, Amen.

Catechism Quotes of the Week:

The Christian Family

CCC 2204 “The Christian family constitutes a specific revelation and realization of ecclesial communion, and for this reason it can and should be called a domestic church. It is a community of faith, hope, and charity; it assumes singular importance in the Church, as is evident in the New Testament.”

CCC 2205 “The Christian family is a communion of persons, a sign and image of the communion of the Father and the Son in the Holy Spirit. In the procreation and education of children it reflects the Father’s work of creation. It is called to partake of the prayer and sacrifice of Christ. Daily prayer and the reading of the Word of God strengthen it in charity. the Christian family has an evangelizing and missionary task.”

CCC 2206 “The relationships within the family bring an affinity of feelings, affections and interests, arising above all from the members’ respect for one another. the family is a privileged community called to achieve a “sharing of thought and common deliberation by the spouses as well as their eager cooperation as parents in the children’s upbringing.”
