September 5, 2021, TWENTY-THIRD SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIMES

Shopping made simple

What do you give to the saint who has everything? Mother Teresa of Calcutta was among the spiritually richest people on the planet throughout her productive life caring for the poor. The date of her death, September 5, was quickly recognized in Hungary as an occasion to be perpetually honored. In 2012, the United Nations declared this date as an International Day of Charity in her memory. As Mother Teresa demonstrated, simple acts of charity reach across divisions and make communities more resilient. Contribute to the healing of society today by charitable giving, locally or globally.

Today’s readings: Isaiah 35:4-7a; James 2:1-5; Mark 7:31-37 (128).

“Did not God choose those who are poor in the world to be . . . heirs of the kingdom that he promised?”
