From the Pastor

"Mary has chosen the better part.”

07-21-2019Fr. Dan Connealy

Happy Sunday!

As we begin the 16th Week in Ordinary Time the Church presents with a famous scene from Genesis 18. Abraham encounters three mysterious visitors for whom he quickly prepares a meal. These three men, who promise that in a year Sarah will bear a child, are often understood to represent an image of the Trinity. Their relative silence as they meet Abraham is a cause of wonder, but Abraham seems to understand something special about these men. While his intuition may not be what the Church Fathers have understood, his actions bring to mind that famous line from the rule of St. Benedict, "Receive all visitors as if they were Christ." Or from the Letter to the Hebrews, "Do not neglect hospitality, for through it some have unknowingly entertained angels." (13:2)
