The Eleventh Sunday after Pentecost

Ordinary Time: August 24th

Commentary on the Readings for the Eleventh Sunday after Pentecost:

"They brought to Him one deaf and dumb. . .And his ears were at once opened, and. . .his tongue was loosed, and he began to speak correctly" (Gospel).

May your ears tune in on God (symbolized by kneeling figures at left). May your tongue broadcast His Gospel (indicated by figure of "speaker" to the right), in the "holy place" of your parish activities, in the "house" of your family, among the "people" of your acquaintance (Introit).

If we are "to hear" His Voice, we must go "aside from the crowd" at our Sunday Mass, for at least one uninterrupted hour. Only then, like the cured deaf-mute, shall we return and gladly "publish" the truth (Gospel).

St. Paul relates how he received "the gospel"; how he then passed it on to others. "Hold it fast as I preached it to you".
