TWENTIETH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME
Today’s Gospel recounts the story of a Canaanite woman who asks Jesus to help her daughter who is possessed by a demon. Although Jesus ignores her, she keeps after him and in the end her faith is rewarded. It is easy to think that our time and energy should be devoted to those in our own community and ignore the needs of others. But that is not what discipleship is about. We are called to serve others according to the talents and resources we have. It is not required that we even like those who need help. It is not our place to judge their “worthiness.” We are simply to do what we can to help others.
Thus says the Lord: Observe what is right, do what is just. -ISAIAH 56:1
MASS PROTOCOLS AS OF JULY 10, 2020: Per Diocesan policy, in accord with current public health recommendations, the people (except liturgical ministers serving in the sanctuary) must wear cloth face coverings (masks) upon entering the church until they depart. Masks will remain on their face throughout the whole Mass except when receiving communion. Seating at six-foot distances is required. Saint Christopher’s will offer Mass for up to 28 persons at each Mass. Please note that any Mass that you attend during the week will satisfy your Sunday obligation. As always, the greatest concern is for each person’s health and safety, thus it is up to each person to make the decision that is best for them and the community. There will be no gathering before or after Mass. Please consult our website or call the parish office with any questions. Thank you for your patience and cooperation.
