You have the time, 1/2 hour. Watch part 1 on prayer!
There is a great need for prayer as we all try to navigate through these uncertain times. Tonight, Cardinal Seán takes us on a virtual Lenten Retreat and speaks about the importance of making time and space for God to speak to us—that can only be done in prayer.

Some thoughts for the 22nd Sunday of Ordinary Time, September 1, 2019!
Sirach 3:17-18, 20, 28-29
Psalms 68:4-5, 6-7, 10-11
Hebrews 12:18-19, 22-24
Luke 14:1, 7-14
Not too long ago, an immigrant and poor woman who had raised 11 children alone responded, when someone told her she had done a great job, that it was surely because she had been inspired by God. She didn’t give any importance to what she had done and the impact it had on her children and on their own families. It seemed normal to her and nothing to show off about; however, there are people who have to announce every little thing they do and in some manner, have disdain for what others do. There is an adage that says the greatest souls tend to be the humblest. It is not a humbleness that denies the good qualities that God has given, but a humbleness that recognizes them as gifts.
Humility has the same Latin root as the word humus, which means ground. One who is humble is close to the ground and is realistic, knowing just how to approach real problems, limitations, and needs of the people in their surroundings. A humble person does not climb over others or pushes their will, prestige or fame; a humble person is not one who goes out saying that he or she is unworthy, doesn’t know anything, and is self-deprecating. This person, no matter how humble, is unjust because he or she does not recognize the talents, qualities, and gifts that God has given them.
Such great people, in other words, humble and simple, are those who know all they are and have is in the service of others. Nothing we have is by our own right or merit, but from the grace of God; and we do not possess it for ourselves, but for others. Paul says, “by the grace of God I am what I am.” Surely it is difficult to maintain this attitude, because this society gives much importance to certain people: civil authorities and ecclesial authorities,
professors, doctors, lawyers or famous stars. Perhaps even people with a lot of money are considered important… even if the money was obtained by exploiting others; but the Gospel makes it perfectly clear: for Jesus, those who serve others are the ones who are important.
The women who cared for 11 children is great as is the father who sacrifices for his family; those who work elbow to elbow with others are great, as are those who simply walk with their God.
Points to Ponder
Who do you consider great or important?
If you had to describe yourself, what words would you use?
Are you capable of making a list of all of your good qualities?

Excellent role model
newwaysministry.org Good Shepherd Catholic Church, Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin, held a Mass of Inclusion to welcome LGBTQ people to the church.
Dear friends: I'm happy to share with you this extended meditation, "Emmaus and the LGBT Catholic."
What might the Gospel story of the "Road to Emmaus" have to say to LGBT Catholics? In the Gospel of Luke (24:13-35), two of Jesus's disciples, dejected and depressed after the Crucifixion, are walking away from Jerusalem, towards the town of Emmaus, when they encounter the Risen Christ. But they are unable to recognize him until they break bread with him.
What might this beloved Gospel story have to say to LGBT Catholics today, who seek to encounter Christ in their own lives in the midst of many struggles?
Thanks to Leopold Stuebner SJ, Michael Seay and Kevin Robles for their help in producing this new video!
