23rd Oct 2016
30th Sunday in Ordinary Time
1st Reading: Isaiah 2:1-5
2nd Reading: Ephesians 3:2-12
Gospel: Mark 16:15
How many times have we read or heard about someone who’s gotten into trouble - maybe even fired from a job - because of a brush with the law? While our “Christian” minds tell us to be sorry and even pray for the person, a little voice inside our heads may also be saying, “I’m glad I would never do anything like that.” And perhaps we wouldn’t. But are there some things we do that are still not pleasing in God’s eyes? Today’s readings caution us not to look so intently at someone else’s wrongdoing that we overlook our own weaknesses and shortcomings. When we measure ourselves against the worst people we can think of, we come out looking pretty good. There is a danger, however, in using someone else’s behavior as a way of reflecting our own goodness.
8 Dec 2015 - 20 Nov 2016
The Holy Door will be open daily from 6am-7pm until 20 Nov 2016.

What is the Holy Door?
The Holy Door or Porta Santa has been used since the fifteenth century as a ritual expression of conversion. But the door finds meaning only when the believer associates the door with Christ. Jesus is the Door.
