Fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time

In today’s gospel, Jesus establishes his authority by his wise teaching and healing among the
people. Parents, you have authority from God to teach and care for your children. Do you
exercise this authority in the spirit of Jesus? Are you under His authority, seeking His wisdom
when making decisions and exercising your power?
314 Holy Hours were kept before the Blessed Sacrament this past week. We have
one new committed adorer this week; Billie McClees. Many thanks and may our Lord
bless you.

A reminder for all adorers: Be sure, if you are unable to keep your hour, to as soon as
possible, call your captain. We cannot leave our Lord, exposed in the Blessed Sacrament
alone. Bad weather (as we have had lately) is always difficult, please plan ahead. By the grace
of God and a wife and husband, we did not have to repose our Lord, many thanks to all who
treasure their committed hour.
