Gospel Meditation

 

GOSPEL MEDITATION - ENCOURAGE DEEPER UNDERSTANDING OF SCRIPTURE

July 14, 2024—15th Sunday in Ordinary Time

         Once I asked a fallen-away Catholic friend of mine what he remembered about the parish priest from his youth. He said, “He was a gentle, nice guy. Kind of vanilla. Kept to himself.” It struck me that he, perhaps like many, perceive Catholic priests as the following: lonely, harmless, and self-sufficient. As a challenge both to this perception (accurate or not) and to us priests who perhaps feel a pull in that uninspiring direction, stands the mighty image of what we see in the Gospel this Sunday.

        Jesus sent out his apostles, “two-by-two, with power over demons, and without money belts.” Two-by-two: they enjoyed deep fellowship and brotherhood. Power over demons: they were anything but harmless. These men wielded enormous power against evil. Without money belts: they were not self-sufficient. They needed others to help them. Not lonely, but in community. Not harmless but armed with massive spiritual energy. Not self-sufficient, but poor and in need of help.

      This is a challenge to me, and perhaps to all of us, living in a rich, secularized, and individualized culture. Do I embrace my priestly ministry in deep fellowship with other priests? Do I speak and act boldly to drive out evil where it is found? Do I live poorly and simply, trusting in the help of those around me even for basic needs? The fruitfulness of priestly ministry largely depends on these three traits. Let’s pray for all priests — and, by extension, all of us Christians — to live more like Jesus’ communal, poor, and powerful apostles. — Father John Muir ©LPi

Our Bishop's Bold New Website

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

I am happy to inform you of a news website that is officially launching today that is designed for you. The website is called GulfCoastCatholic.org and it will provide articles that help you to know, live and share the faith.

All of us in Tampa Bay, the Suncoast and the Nature Coast are geographically connected by the waters of our coastline and spiritually connected by the waters of Baptism. Our logo is a visual reminder of these connections.

Whether it’s stories about faith and family or news about our pope and our Church, GulfCoastCatholic.org will provide timely and relevant articles for staying up-to-date with Catholic life.  We will also share stories about people who are Courageously Living the Gospel

I encourage you to subscribe to our free, weekly e-newsletter, the Wednesday Wave. Then, you can stay informed and hopefully inspired

Thank you for your faithfulness and may God bless you and all of your loved ones!

Bishop Gregory Parkes
Bishop of St. Petersburg

 If you haven’t seen “The Chosen,” I’m here to recommend that you do. It’s easily the best Christian-based television show to date. It has changed my life forever. I believe it can do the same for you.


 

Vote No On Amendment 4

An extremely grave amendment has been placed on the November 2024 ballot that seeks to erase pro-life protections by inserting language into the Florida Constitution prohibiting regulation of abortion. The amendment would allow late-term abortions, and would eliminate laws requiring parental consent and safety protocols for women. The Catholic Church across the state of Florida is urging all Florida Catholics and people of good will to vote “no” on Amendment 4. To learn more, visit www.dosp.org/voteno.
