month of October is dedicated to the Holy Rosary. The
Memorial of Our Lady of the Rosary is celebrated on October 7. October
falls during the liturgical season known as Ordinary Time, which
is represented by the liturgical color green.
October, as in all of Ordinary Time (formerly known as Time After
Pentecost), the Liturgy does not focus on one particular mystery of
Christ, but views the mystery of Christ in all its aspects. We follow
the life of Christ through the Gospels, and focus on the teachings and
parables of Jesus and what it means for each of us to be a follower of
Christ. During Ordinary Time we can concentrate more on the saints and
imitate their holiness as Christ's followers.
Twenty Seventh Sunday in Ordinary Time
The Lord is good to those who hope in him, to the soul that seeks him.
the beginning of this gospel, Jesus reminded his listeners of what
God’s original plan was for marriage. A man and a woman were to be
united and live as one. It was simple. But as relationships developed,
marriage must have been as complicated then as it is now because Moses
had to make concessions for the people. Scholars still struggle with
the words of Jesus in this gospel because imperfect relationships
continue to exist today. What is clear
in this reading is that in order to enter the Kingdom of Heaven we must
accept it as a gift. Children in ancient times as well as our own,
depend entirely on their parents (or society) for their care. To
children, everything is a gift because they can’t earn anything. That
is how it must be for us if we are to accept the Kingdom of God.
