Twentieth Sunday of Ordinary Time

August 14, 2022



Gospel: Luke 
12:49-53 

In this Gospel, fire is an image referring to divine judgment. Jesus is clearly stating that he has come to judge the people.
His own 
faithfulness to this task led to his great anguish and ultimately to his passion and death.
So will we his faithful disciples be treated.  
Jesus’ intent here is not primarily to 
condemn people, but to challenge them to right living according to the covenant established with God. 
So must this be our intent. 







 


St. Mark Parish was recently awarded a grant from
the Faith Formation Endowment at the Catholic Foundation of NW PA.
This grant money is being used for new electronic equipment in the Religious Ed. Center
to aid with teachings of our Catholic faith for our parish.
