Twenty-fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time
September 19, 2021



If you receive a text message or an e-mail from Fr. Roberto Cid asking for a favor, do not respond. It is a hoax!

Twenty-fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Neither worldly nor sterile

Dear sisters and brothers in Christ,

This week Pope Francis concluded his second apostolic journey since the start of the pandemic. He visited Hungary and Slovakia. Divine Providence had it that on September 14, the feast of the Triumph of the Cross, he celebrated the Eucharist according to the oriental rites. He preached a beautiful and deep homily that I share with you. It includes a prophetic warning to those who attempt to live their Christian faith without the cross.

“We proclaim Christ crucified… the power of God and the wisdom of God.” So, Saint Paul tells us, but he does not hide the fact that, in terms of human wisdom, the cross appears as something completely different: it is “scandal”, “foolishness”. The cross was an instrument of death, yet it became the source of life. It was a horrendous sight, yet it revealed to us the beauty of God’s love. That is why, in today’s feast, the people of God venerate the cross and the Liturgy celebrates it. The Gospel of John takes us by the hand and helps us to enter into this mystery. The evangelist himself was present, standing at the foot of the cross. Gazing upon Jesus, hanging lifeless there, he writes: “He who saw this has testified” to it. Saint John both sees and testifies.
