Wednesday of the 30th Week in Ordinary Time and the Feast of Sts. Simon and Jude
Greetings Dear STA Parishioners and Special Friends:
Welcome to Wednesday of the 30th Week in Ordinary Time and the Feast of Sts. Simon and Jude. Here are the readings for today: Click Here for Today's Readings .
And here is a short reflection on our Saints of the Day; Simon and Jude:
Simon and Jude were among the twelve men Jesus chose to lead his Church. Tradition holds that after Pentecost Simon preached the Gospel in Edessa and Jude in Egypt. The two Apostles met in Persia, where they suffered martyrdom on the same day. “Our Lord has appointed certain men to be guides and teachers of the world and stewards of his divine mysteries. Now he bids them to shine out like lamps and to cast their light over every country. These holy men become the pillar and mainstay of the truth, and Jesus said that he was sending them just as the Father had sent him” (Saint Cyril of Alexandria).
The Liturgy of the Word video us up and running on our Facebook page, and Fr. James Dorman is our celebrant and homilist today. The reflection at the end of the Liturgy of the Word is a prayer to St. Joseph for his intercession for families.
