Preliminary Lenten Reflections from Pius Parsch

Monday, March 7th, 2011

Every year it seems we One-Year Lectionary pastors have to defend the whole notion of Gesimatide to those who know not the season. “Why prepare to prepare? That’s silly!” some of them bark. Let the uninitiated bark. Pius Parsch has some good thoughts concerning not only Gesimatide, but also Holy Lent and Passiontide too. First […]

Pius Parsch on Epiphany 5 – Matthew 13:24-30

Monday, September 20th, 2010

Pius Parsch, “The Church’s Year of Grace” …love of neighbor cannot be divorced from love of God. The Lord’s days is indeed holy, it can never, however, be desecrated through deeds of love done toward one’s fellow man. For every good act toward one’s neighbor is likewise a good act toward God. …Jesus is speaking […]
