Avoid greed in all its forms. People may be wealthy, but their possessions do not guarantee them life." This is the teaching of Jesus who demands a counter cultural stance in our consumer society. What form does your greed take? Ask for the grace to hold power and possessions lightly.

|THANK YOU for continuing to save aluminum
cans. The money raised from recycling the aluminum goes towards the
Tradition" Campaign and your help makes a
big difference! Bags of aluminum cans can be
put in the containers by the doors of the
church or by the garages behind the rectory.
In today's Gospel for the 18th Sunday in Ordinary Time we are warned about
growing rich for ourselves instead of growing rich in the sight of GOD.
Mother Teresa writes, "Look at JESUS. Let us give ourselves up to HIM, and
trust in HIM entirely. Only then will our doubts melt away and our hearts will
be at peace." Visit the chapel to obtain that peace.
The Adoration Chapel is located in the convent of Holy Cross. Open
