Welcome to Saint Anastasia, A Roman Catholic Church and School in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia
Dear Parishioners of Saint Anastasia,
This Sunday’s Gospel doesn’t need a lot of explanation. We’ve all heard it before. But perhaps today we can pause for a moment and consider one aspect of Jesus’ response to those trying to test him. He says to “love your neighbor as yourself.”
I think most of us would be proud to humbly admit we don’t love ourselves all that much! That would be selfish and prideful, and we’re just not like that. But I would suspect, upon closer examination, that we might be a wee bit more lenient judging ourselves than we are judging others. Do we expect more of others than we do of ourselves? Are we willing to cut ourselves a little slack while demanding perfection of those around us? Do we truly love our neighbor as we love ourselves?
Have a great week,
We had a wonderful turnout for the St. Francis blessing of the animals on Sunday, October 5th. Father Colagreco had us singing the Prayer of St. Francis and the animal joined in, too. We had dogs, cats, and guinea pigs. Please click the icon for pictures.
