Gospel Reflection

Juli Schreiber ’06 MA

Jesus’ table fellowship with tax collectors and sinners in today’s Gospel confounds the Pharisees—they asked the disciples, “Why does your teacher eat with them?” It reminded me of Pope Francis’ visit to America last September. At the conclusion of his discussion with Congress at the nation’s Capitol, he decided to forgo a luncheon with political dignitaries. Instead, he joined homeless people served by St. Maria’s Meals. 

Saint of the Day

St. Monegundis, you were the mother who grieved the death of both of your daughters by giving yourself to God--pray for us!
