Twenty-Fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time - Sept. 24, 2023
The Lord may surprise us and even confound us, but that is because God's ways are so far above our own. Nevertheless, Isaiah assures us, we can depend upon God for mercy. Paul trusts that Christ is with him, in life as well as in death. God is more generous than what we would consider sensible. Listening to God's word today, let us take comfort in God's unfathomable generosity and mercy.
