“God of peace, bring your peace to our violent world: peace in the hearts of all men and women and peace among the nations of the earth. Turn to your way of love those whose hearts and minds are consumed with hatred. God of understanding we seek your light and guidance.

Comfort and console us, strengthen us in hope, and give us the wisdom and courage to work tirelessly for a world where true peace and love reign among nations and in the hearts of all. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.” -Benedict XVI

In Sunday's Gospel from Mark 8:27-35, Jesus asks the disciples for a field report by asking what others say about him. He then turns the question directly to the disciples and asks what they believe. Peter speaks for all of them when he announces that they believe Jesus to be the Christ.
The word Christ is the Greek translation of the Hebrew word for Messiah, which means “the anointed one.” Now that the disciples have acknowledged Jesus as the Christ, Jesus confides in them the outcome of his ministry: he will be rejected, must suffer and die, and will rise after three days. Jesus then teaches the crowd and the disciples about the path of discipleship: To be Christ’s disciple is to follow in the way of the cross.

It is customary and considered polite, when asked to come to someone’s home for dinner, to ask, “What can I bring?” Even if our host tells us we don’t have to bring anything, we still usually bring some small token of our appreciation for the other person’s generosity. It is a way of saying that we are giving our very selves to this encounter and that we seek to deepen the relationship that this meal celebrates and symbolizes. When we celebrate the Mass, we need to ask ourselves, “What can I bring?” The gifts of bread and wine that are brought forward to the altar are symbolic of all that we bring and offer, namely, our very selves.

Today is the Feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary. The Church has celebrated Mary’s birth since at least the sixth century. A September birth was chosen because the Eastern Church begins its Church year with September. The September 8 date helped determine the date for the feast of the Immaculate Conception on December 8. Saint Augustine connects Mary’s birth with Jesus’ saving work. He tells the earth to rejoice and shine forth in the light of her birth. Click on the link to learn more: https://trst.in/Mumvvk

In Sunday's Gospel reading from Mark 7:31-37, Jesus heals a man who was deaf and had a speech impediment. This is a story about Jesus’ healing power, and in it we find clues about our understanding of sacrament. The Church continues to celebrate the sacraments using physical means. In the Sacrament of Baptism, water and oil are used to show the power of the Holy Spirit. In the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick, we are anointed with holy oil on the forehead and the hands. In the Eucharist, bread and wine become the Body and Blood of Christ. We are a sacramental people who believe that God’s grace is given to us through these physical signs.

St. Rita Catholic Community, Dallas

Gather + Worship + Serve + Renew

Welcome to St. Rita! We’re a vibrant Catholic community located in the heart of North Dallas, a historic community but also vibrant and fresh! A welcome place for people of all ages and all walks of life, we’re a community of Catholic Christians on fire for Jesus, committed to serving God and neighbor in our city and in our world.

Our Vision for the sort of community we strive to be can be shared in four words: Gather, Worship, Serve, Renew. As Catholics, our purpose is to be a community that welcomes and gathers all who will be drawn by our love and kindness, open to any and all. We gather first to worship God in Christ in the Mass and in the other liturgies of the Church. As Catholics, ours is the faith of the apostles, found throughout the Catholic world, and which we share in communion with our Holy Father, Pope Francis. But of course, our worship sends us out in service. Each of us are called and expected to serve in some capacity, serving those in need, serving each other, and the common good. And this we do, because through worship and service, we become people of renewal, renewing ourselves in Christ and the world by our love.

That’s it, simple! At St. Rita, we GATHER, WORSHIP, SERVE, and RENEW! Now the only question is this: Is God calling you? We believe he is, and so we invite you to discover Christ with us and to discover the Church, and the renewed you! It’s an adventure, this life of grace. Come, journey with us!
