Sunday, The 7th Sunday of Pentecost

Announcement
I have 2 Dell color cartridges Series ll for a Dell printer and 1 Dell photo color cartridge.
I got a new printer and already had these cartridges and they don't work on the new one.
Who knew?

If anyone can use them, e-mail me.
e-mail is on my profile and I will send them to you for the postage.
Not sure what that would be but we can work something out. 






The Reading from the Holy Gospel according to St. Matthew. (9:27-35)
At that time, as Jesus passed on from there, two blind men followed him, crying aloud: “Have mercy on us, Son of David.” When He entered the house, the blind men came to Him; and Jesus said to them, “Do you believe that I am able to do this?” They said to Him, “Yes, Lord.” Then He touched their eyes, saying, “According to your faith be it done to you.” And their eyes were opened. And Jesus sternly charged them, “See that no one knows it.” But they went away and spread His fame through all that district. As they were going away, behold, a dumb demoniac was brought to Him. And when the demon had been cast out, the dumb man spoke; and the crowds marveled, saying, “Never was anything like this seen in Israel.” But the Pharisees said, “He casts out demons by the prince of demons.” And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every disease and every infirmity.


Heal me oh Lord, that I may see the error of my ways.


I will soon enter the 74th year of my journey through this earth.

How blessed I am to have known and served the God of my choice.

My Savior Jesus Christ.

As I sit and ponder the significance of this Gospel it amazes me that in every Catholic Church all over the world the same Gospel has been read on the 7th Sunday of Pentecost for the 73 years of my life.
I attended Sunday mass even as an infant, not knowing what was going on or being said but from about 5 or 6 I can remember every nook and cranny of our church so that means I have heard this same Gospel over 60 times on Sunday. 
Now that does not include the number of times I heard it on other mass occasions.
In elementary and high school I went to mass every day.
How many times have I heard all the words of Jesus from the Gospels?
Not enough I am sure.
Each time it is like brand new to me.
I may be beginning to see with healed eyes.


Blessings to all on this beautiful of days.

Ramadan starts tomorrow. My 12 year old is actually ready to go back to school but they don't start until after the Eid holiday so their first day will be September 5th. Since I work in the front office, we always have to go back early. Our international teachers arrive on the 16th and start on the 17th -- they are all coming from the US and Canada so will be a whole new world for them over here. Hope you are having a great weekend.
