for this month.

Gospel Reflections for November.
Fr. Bill LaGrand, M.A.


Nov. 5, 2017 – 31st Sunday in Ordinary Time.

Jesus was consistent in his actions regardless of the opinion of others. He responded neither to their approval nor their disapproval. Are our actions consistent with what we profess?
(Matthew 23: 1-12)

Nov. 12, 2017 – 32nd Sunday in Ordinary Time.

Being ready to meet the Lord is a daily activity, not something to be put off to a later date. Simply stated, if we met the Lord today, would we be ready?
(Matthew 25: 1-13)


Nov. 19, 2017 – 33rd Sunday in Ordinary Time.

What we are expected to do is to use the talents God has given us to the best extent we can. Thankfully, we have Jesus Christ from whom all gifts and graces flow and by whom our weaknesses are redeemed. (Matthew 25: 14-30)


Nov. 26, 2017 – Solemnity of Christ the King.

How we are judged at the end of our life will depend on whether or not we model our lives after the Good Shepherd or not. We have been taught how a good shepherd operates. God sent Jesus as the Good Shepherd. We should imitate him.
(Matthew 25: 31-46)
