1 Twenty-Third SUNDAY in ORDINARY Time September 8, 2019. To be a disciple we must carry our cross and follow Him. The cost of discipleship is real. To love Christ above family, self, possessions is difficult. And that is the cross we are to carry: the difficulty of prioritizing Christ when it would be easier not to. After all, what else is there? Only the cross. We carry our cross to become like the Master who carried His cross to death, victory and redemption. Weekday Masses THIS WEEK IN THE PARISH.
