FROM OUR EDITORS—Sunday, October 22 – 29th Sunday in Ordinary Time


Sunday’s Gospel is a great one for World Mission Sunday. As we consider “what belongs to Caesar” and “what belongs to God,” we might take it a step further and consider our personal and communal responsibility for those in need around the world. Many of us can get so caught up in being one of the fortunate “haves” that we may forgot the less fortunate “have nots.”

Now is a good time to express thanks to God for our many blessings. This may apply to material wealth and possessions as well as to less tangible, but no less valuable, blessings such as opportunities, faith, and civil liberties. We also need to discern how God may be calling us to greater sacrifice in order to support the Church’s missionary efforts in the world. It’s never too early to start helping the children in our lives to develop missionary hearts and mindsets. Connect to last week’s blog posting about World Mission Sunday here.

    Thank you for a great weekly newsletter. I enjoy it, but is their anyway it can be put in print mode so I may print copies for my teachers? I used to be able to print the old newsletter form, and the teachers enjoyed reading them. Thanks, Camille Borowski, St. Catherine of Siena Parish, Clarksville, VA

      We’re pleased that you like our weekly newsletter and want to share content with your catechists and teachers. We encourage you to have them each sign up to receive GROW in their own inboxes. With our migration to a blog that allows better archiving and search options than our previous format, we no longer provide the “Print PDF” as we did in the past. You can, however, print out those pages you would like to share. Click through to the full article on the blog site. There are several small icons at top right. Click on the green one, then select either CleanPrint or PrintFriendly. Both of these tools will help you print out each blog posting. You can also simply use Print in your File menu.

      I realize that this doesn’t duplicate the ease with which you were able to print the newsletter articles in the past. We will keep your request in mind as we make additional changes. We appreciate your feedback.
