Fr. James Marchionda, O.P., previews the readings for the Nineteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time (August 11, 2019): Reading 1: WIS 18:6-9; Reading 2: HEB 11:1-2, 8-19; Gospel: LK
Thank you for joining the Dominican Friars once again for another episode of Know Before You Go, our weekly series to help you prepare for the weekend’s Mass readings!
I returned to Chicago this past weekend after spending the past month in Vietnam for the Order’s General Chapter. As we approach the readings for the 19th Sunday in Ordinary Time, we are called to hear the sobering reality of the Gospel message in light of our most recent national tragedy and to act accordingly.
Wishing you and your families Christ’s peace.
Fr. James V. Marchionda, O.P.
