Welcome to St. Louise Church -
We wish to welcome all visitors, members and children today. We pray that worshiping with us will give you a sense of fellowship with Christ and with us as God's people, as well as comfort and strength for all your needs. If you have no church of your own, we invite you to make this your home church. But above all, we invite you to come to worship with us at any time.

SIXTEENTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME

Another parable he put before them, saying, "The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a man who sowed good seed in his field; but while men were sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat, and went away. So when the plants came up and bore grain, then the weeds appeared also. And the servants of the householder came and said to him, ‘Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? How then has it weeds?' He said to them, `An enemy has done this.' The servants said to him, `Then do you want us to go and gather them?' But he said, `No; lest in gathering the weeds you root up the wheat along with them. Let both grow together until the harvest; and at harvest time I will tell the reapers, Gather the weeds first and bind them in bundles to be  burned, but gather the wheat into my barn.'"
(Parable of the mustard seed and leaven)
Another parable he put before them, saying, "The kingdom of heaven is like a grain of mustard seed which a man took and sowed in his field; it is the smallest of all seeds, but when it has grown it is the greatest of shrubs and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and make nests in its branches." He told them another parable. "The kingdom of heaven is like leaven which a woman took and hid in three measures of flour, till it was all leavened." All this Jesus said to the crowds in parables; indeed he said nothing to them without a parable. This was to fulfill what was spoken by the prophet: "I will open my mouth in parables, I will utter what has been hidden since the foundation of the world."
(Jesus explains the parable)
Then he left the crowds and went into the house. And his disciples came to him, saying, "Explain to us the parable of the weeds of the field." He answered, "He who sows the good seed is the Son of man; the field is the world, and the good seed means the sons of the kingdom; the weeds are the sons of the evil one, and the enemy who sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the close of the age, and the reapers are angels. Just as the weeds are gathered and burned with fire, so will it be at the close of the age. The Son of man will send his angels, and they will gather out of his kingdom all causes of sin and all evildoers, and throw them into the furnace of fire; there men will weep and gnash their teeth. Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears, let him hear."

Matthew 13:24-43

MAKING CHRIST'S CHURCH

We love our Church, with all her limitations, and her riches too, she is our Mother. For this reason we respect her, and while we do so, we dream that she will never lose her beauty. May she be the Church where it is good to live, where your can breathe, and say what you think-a Church of Freedom. A Church which listens before speaking and welcomes instead of judging, forgives without wishing to condemn, and announces rather than denounces. A Church of mercy and of where the simplest of our brothers and sisters will understand what the others are saying. Our Church will be where the wisest of leaders will know that he doesn't know all, and where the people of God will be revealed in its entirety-a Church of wisdom.
May our Church be where the Holy Spirit will be able to feel at home because everything has not been foreseen, settled and decided in advance. An open Church, a Church where the audacity to do something new and will be stronger than the habit of doing things as they have always been done. A Church where everyone can pray in their own language and express themselves according to their culture, and live with their own history. A Church of which people will not say how well they are organized, but say see how they love one another. A Church of the city, a Church of suburbs, and of the streets.
Lift up you heads and look - the Lord is with us and with you.

-Adapted from a 1966 Pastoral letter of Bishop Guy Droubaix-SntDenis, France
