TUESDAY OF THE FOURTEENTH WEEK IN ORDINARY TIME, JULY 05, 2022



A Gospel according to MT 9:32-38


A demoniac who could not speak was brought to Jesus, and when the demon was driven out the mute man spoke. The crowds were amazed and said, “Nothing like this has ever been seen in Israel.” But the Pharisees said, “He drives out demons by the prince of demons.”

Jesus went around to all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the Gospel of the Kingdom, and curing every disease and illness. At the sight of the crowds, his heart was moved with pity for them because they were troubled and abandoned, like sheep without a shepherd. Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is abundant but the laborers are few; so ask the master of the harvest to send out laborers for his harvest.”


REFLECTION

“The harvest is abundant but the laborers are few;

so ask the master of the harvest to send out laborers for his harvest.”


We have read this Gospel before. And listened to many homilies about the "vocation crisis".


Just this past Sunday we also read in Luke's Gospel the same words as above. (Lk 10:2). In his homily, the priest mentioned there always has been a need for more priests. It is only in this era we live in that there are way less vocations than ever before.


Our parish is living this as I write this piece. Our pastor went on sabbatical late last year. And was supposed to return by Ash Wednesday. He came back a month ago to let us know he was transferred to another parish as an associate vicar. And no other pastor has been assigned to our parish as of yet.


Mercifully, masses continue thanks to our pastoral vicar, and a group of retired priests that continue to bring us the sacraments such as the Mass and Confession. How long can we continue without a head?


Please pray with us the PAPA Prayer for Priests, and the Holy Spirit prayer, so our Bishop can assign a good and faithful pastor to our parish.


God bless y'all!
