Preaching for the Twenty-seventh Sunday in Ordinary Time, Maryknoll Sister Sia Nyasari Temu offers a reflection on the power of faith: "Jesus told his disciples if they had faith 'the size of a mustard seed' they could command a mulberry tree to be uprooted and moved to the sea. This is an image Jesus is using to illustrate the power of faith, no matter how small that faith is. He is aware that it is when we believe in something that we are able to realize it. Indeed, Jesus is not talking of a magic way of doing things, rather it is the role faith plays in realizing our vision, dreams, and desires."Sister Sia Nyasari Temu entered the Maryknoll Sisters in 2003. In 2006, she was assigned to the Peace Building Team in Africa, based in Nairobi, Kenya. The focus of this team’s ministry is “Conversations for Social Change,” a program designed to prototype a process to effect social change through personal transformation.Visit www.catholicwomenpreach.org/preaching/10062019 to learn more about Sia, to read her preaching text, and for more preaching from Catholic women.

Preaching for the Twenty-fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time, Marisa Vertrees offers a reflection on living the value of Sabbath:"When we focus too much on consumption and material wealth, we harm ourselves, we harm others, and we harm creation.

Preaching for the Twenty-fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time, Krisanne Vaillancourt Murphy offers a reflection on restorative justice:"The story of the Prodigal Son reminds us that we are all called, in whatever ways reconciliation may be necessary in our lives -- whether we resemble the father, the elder brother, or the prodigal son himself. We are called to take one step, then another, on our journeys to recover what is lost and transform damaged relationships. Reconciling isn’t about forgetting the hurt, it’s about us finding new ways to model God’s boundless mercy."Krisanne Vaillancourt Murphy the Executive Director of Catholic Mobilizing Network, a national organization that mobilizes Catholics and all people of goodwill to value life over death, to end the use of the death penalty, to transform the U.S. criminal justice system from punitive to restorative, and to build capacity in U.S. society to engage in restorative practices.

Preaching for the Twenty-third Sunday in Ordinary Time, Gina Messina offers a reflection on what it means to be "all in" as a disciple of Jesus:"When Jesus says..that we need to be 'all in,' what does this mean? First, I think we need to be honest with ourselves and acknowledge that being 'all in' is rare - it is challenging and a great risk that many of us are not willing to take. That said, what we can do is wake up every morning and acknowledge our position in the world, our abilities to contribute to positive social change, and do our best to make that happen. We are not always going to be successful; but it is our intention that matters." Gina Messina is a feminist scholar, Catholic theologian, and activist. Her research and writing gives particular attention to the intersection of gender, religion, and politics. Messina is currently Associate Professor of Religious Studies at Ursuline College in Pepper Pike, Ohio where she formerly served as Dean of the School of Graduate and Professional Studies.Visit www.catholicwomenpreach.org/preaching/09082019 to learn more about Gina, to view her video or read her preaching text, and for more preaching from Catholic women.
Preaching for the Twenty-second Sunday in Ordinary Time, Marie Anne Mayeski offers a reflection on humility:"If we are to be humble after the pattern of Jesus, then, like Him, we must lay aside the garments that social status and worldly privilege dress us in and wash the feet of those who are like us, equal to us, made in the image and likeness of God. We must, in short, wash each other's feet."Marie Anne Mayeski received a Ph.D. in Theology from Fordham University and taught for 30 plus years in the Department of Theological Studies at Loyola Marymount University.
