Sunday October 1st- Twenty Sixth Sunday Ordinary Time- Turn away from sin and follow Christ


First Reading- Ezekiel 18:25-28- Ezekiel assures that those who turn away from sin shall not die.


Psalm- PS 25:4-9- Remember your mercies O Lord.

Second Reading- Philippians 2:1-11- St. Pauls letter encourages unity in turning away from selfishness to emulate Christ.

Gospel- Matthew 21:28-32- Jesus' parable favors the son who shamefully indicated defiance, but changed his mind and was obedient.


In todays Gospel parable there is a model son, who gives honor to his father by verbally assenting to his father's wishes. But his words are hollow, and his virtue is a mirage. How does our own reality measure up to our Christian ideals we have for ourselves? loving our neighbor sounds like a lovely sentiment until they cut us off on the highway. May Christ who calls us always to conversion help us root out any hypocrisy in our own lives, that we may truely confess that Jesus is Lord.
