18th SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME
There are many moments in our lives when we must face and deal with change.
Change requires us to abandon old familiar patterns of life and move into new and
unfamiliar ways of living. In times of change we must cope with the fear of the unknown.
Fear sometimes plays upon us and causes us to resist. We want to change but at the
same time we don’t want to change. The readings this Sunday are all about change....

can. For more information, including a letter from Bishop
Malooly, a message from the Cathedral’s Administrator and a

MARRIAGE AND FAMILY LIFE
Marriage Moments: "The whole Israelite community grumbled..." Ex16:2) "Put away the old self of your former way of life..." (Ephesians 4: 22) It's easy to slip into the habit of grumbling to your spouse. Although occasional venting can be cathartic, this week focus on putting away your grumbling self and balance it with renewed gratefulness. It'll make both of you happier.

Parenting Pointers
: The weather this summer has been confusing at best. Whether it's been wetter or dryer, hotter or colder, in your part of this vast world, take advantage of whatever weather you have. Do silly things like walk in the rain, make mud pies, build sand castles, bundle up in blankets... Unusual experiences are memories that stick.

VOCATION REFLECTION
One day, each of us will share the transfigured life of the Lord in the Kingdom of God. Until we get there, though, religious women, religious men, deacons and priests attempt to keep us focused on that new life through lives of holiness and service. Is God calling you to serve the Church in one of these vocations? If you think so, please call or write Father David Kelley, Diocesan Director of Priestly and Religious Vocations (302-573-3113, vocations@cdow.org). Be sure to visit our website: www.CalledByTheLord.com!
