Sixteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

 “I myself will gather the remnant of my flock …  and bring them back to their meadow; there they shall increase and multiply.  I will appoint shepherds for them who will shepherd them so that they need no longer fear and tremble; and none shall be missing, says the Lord.”

Marking the 50th anniversary of the prophetic papal encyclical Humanae Vitae, Fr. Stephen Hamilton reflects upon the ordinary, daily living in this natural world which is pregnant with beauty and mystery that touches upon the extraordinary, the spiritual, and the eternal transcendent realm of God.
