Weekly Message:

THIRTY SECOND SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME
November 12, 2017
         “Be transformed by renewal of mind.” Paul tells us to take an attitude of life that is completely different from the attitude of the world. Throughout the Gospels, particularly in Matthew where today’s gospel is taken, Jesus emphasizes the need for inner transformation. His complaints against the Pharisees, as we heard last week, was that they were hypocrites. They behaved one way, but were another way. He called them whiten sepulchers. On the outside, they looked nice and clean. On the inside they were rotten. The tax collectors and prostitutes who turned to Jesus transformed their lives. Their devotion to the Lord was a reflection of the Christian disposition they had taken on.
         
So, how do we form and nourish the Christian attitude of life? On the negative, we cannot give ourselves over to that which destroys the presence of the Lord. We live in a materialistic society. To the vast majority of society success is counted in the amount of stuff a person has. Pleasure, even fleeting pleasure, is the goal of life. The glorification of sex is just one of the many ways that this is expressed. We, you and I, have to fight against the forces outside of us and, particularly, within us that are drawing us into materialism and away from the Christian disposition of life.

          On the positive, we can form and nourish the Christian disposition by continually communication with the Lord. We need to pray daily. We all need a brief time when we are with the Lord and freed of the distractions of life. If we have a family, then we have the additional responsibility to pray as a family every day. We should focus our prayer lives on our Sundays. On Sunday we celebrate the passion, death and resurrection of the Lord and receive the Eucharist. That should be the main focus of our week. The presence of Christ within us in this sacrament gives us the strength to be who we claim to be, Christians.
