“The Kingdom of Heaven is like a treasure a man discovered in a field. In his excitement, he sold everything he owned to get enough money to buy the field—and get the treasure, too! “Again, the Kingdom of Heaven is like a pearl merchant on the lookout for choice pearls. He discovered a real bargain—a pearl of great value—and sold everything he owned to purchase it! “Again, the Kingdom of Heaven can be illustrated by a fisherman—he casts a net into the water and gathers in fish of every kind, valuable and worthless. When the net is full, he drags it up onto the beach and sits down and sorts out the edible ones into crates and throws the others away. That is the way it will be at the end of the world—the angels will come and separate the wicked people from the godly, casting the wicked into the fire; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Do you understand?” “Yes,” they said, “we do.” Then he added, “Those experts in Jewish law who are now my disciples have double treasures—from the Old Testament as well as from the New!”         Matthew 13:44-52

Seventeenth Sunday in Ordinary Time
The first two parables describe the great value of the kingdom of heaven. In the first parable, Jesus says that the kingdom of heaven is like a buried treasure that is worth possessing even if it means giving up everything else. In the second parable, Jesus proposes that the kingdom of heaven is like a pearl of great worth for which one will sell everything else to possess. These parables teach us that we are to place everything we value in the service of the pursuit of the Kingdom of God. The third parable that Jesus proposes in today’s Gospel is different from the first two, but it is reminiscent of the parable of the sower heard in last week’s Gospel. The kingdom of heaven is compared to fishing with a wide net. After the fish have been collected, the good fish are kept and the bad fish are thrown away; so too, in the final judgment, will the wicked and the righteous be separated. Today’s Gospel concludes with a curious statement about the scribe who understands the kingdom of heaven. Here a metaphor is offered: this scribe is like the head of a household who “brings from his storeroom both the new and the old.” The scribes referred to here are experts of Mosaic law. It is possible that Jesus is here instructing the early Christian community on how to proceed in the interpretation of Jewish law with respect to Jesus’ “new” teaching. Jesus’ teaching about the kingdom of heaven does not replace the Jewish tradition; it interprets it in a different light  (Copyright © 2016 Loyola Press.  All Rights Reserved.  Used with permission.  www.loyolapress.com)

Please pray for the soul of John Narkewicz Jr. who passed, his funeral was on Friday, July 28th.
May he rest in the peace of Christ’s love.

Adore the Lord in Holy Attire
Out of respect to Our Lord and for the edification of our neighbors, we ask all men and women, boys and girls to appear in Church modestly and respectfully dressed.  Shorts, tank tops, low cut, backless and mini-dresses, halters, bare mid-rifts, tight fitting clothes, low rise jeans, sheer clothing, exposed undergarments, etc. do not meet the norms.  Appropriate attire truly shows our respect for the Lord and for others, and helps us to a more “full, conscious and active participation” whenever we celebrate the Holy Mass. (Sacrosanctum Concilium, 14)
