On this Father’s Day we are praying for our dads, whether they are near or far away, living or deceased, and especially for the dads here in our congregation. We want them become the fathers on the pattern of our Heavenly Father.
The 11th Sunday of Oridinary Time is not so popular in our calendar because I celebrate it 1 time here in our parish (let me say 11 years we don’t have that Sunday – this year because Easter was very early we got it). The message which this Sunday has is very important even we don’t hear it so often. It is that the Kingdom of God or our faith in God comes from small thing which seems to be insignificant. But God is in control of that He gives us the power to grow and He only he is the source of that inner power.
The Eucharist which we now celebrate is the special prayer to our Heavenly Father which we are doing by and with his Son Jesus Christ. We can say that Every Mass is like Father’s Day to God, because we reverently worship God who is our Father.

One Main Point
The reign of God will grow to its fullness, despite all obstacles.
- Recall a small beginning that has blossomed into fruit–a change in someone close to me that I did not expect, a change in my own attitude or outlook of life. How patient am I with myself? with others? How easily do I give up?
- How do I view the church today? Disappointed, anxious, frustrated? How should I view the church?
