Wednesday of the Thirty-third Week in Ordinary Time

R. Alleluia, alleluia.

I chose you from the world,

to go and bear fruit that will last, says the Lord.

R. Alleluia, alleluia.

See Jn 15:16




42. Is the rise in closed and intolerant attitudes towards others due to the otherwise shrinking or disappearing (to the point that the right to privacy scarcely exists) of distances…???

Third is the constant mantra, “all the priests hate the bishop.”

Bishop Patrick J. Zurek

many times, i praise those from a “harmless fringe ideology” for giving me secret knowledge of what must happen afterwards, and so “Everything becomes a kind of spectacle to be examined and inspected, and people’s lives are now under constant surveillance” …

other times it’s too hard to think about what must happen afterwards, and instead of leaning only on Christ i praise, “Digital communication for bringing everything out into the open; people’s lives are combed over, laid bare and bandied about, often anonymously”…

Catholics praise the LORD for making us, aware of what must happen afterwards, and therefore won’t allow, “Respect for others to disintegrate” since we are “Called to Missionary Synodality” and “renewal” !!!

Rv 4:1

R.    (1b) Holy, holy, holy Lord, mighty God!

Praise the LORD…


“…from the one who has not,

even what he has will be taken away.”

Lk 19:26
