26 Sunday in Ordinary Time – September 28, 2014

Ezekiel 18:25-28  •  Psalm 25:4-9 • Philippians 2:1-11 • Matthew 21:28-32

 In the Gospel Jesus begins a parable by asking, “What is you opinion?,” or in other words, “What do you think?”  He tells the story of a son who says he will work and then does not as opposed to a son who says he will not but repents and does his father’s wishes.  Like Israel, the former son agreed to God’s covenant but rejected it.  The other son represents those who are sinful, but who are willing to repent! As we look into our hearts, may be have the grace to know the continual mercy of God in our lives.  “Remember your mercies, O Lord.” Psalm 25

Our yearly 7-day retreat has ended but now has begun to refresh and renew our spirits.  We appreciate your prayers!  Our Sister Agnes Le will be traveling back to the monastery from our Mother house Jamberoo Abbey, Sydney, Australia, arriving September 30th.  We look forward to her arrival!

As we approach the season of fall, we look out at our desert and see faint hints of yellow, of change.  We are currently working on the Advent newsletter, which will be sent in November.  Know that we keep you and your loved ones always in our prayers.  Thank you for sending all of your prayer requests to us.
