CHRIST OUR LIGHT CATHOLIC CHURCH
Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston
Twenty-Fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time
"May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord
through which the world has been crucified to me and I to the world."
CRISTO NUESTRA LUZ IGLESIA CATÓLICA
Archidiócesis de Galveston-Houston
XXIV Domingo Ordinario
"No permita Dios que yo me gloríe en algo
que no sea la cruz de nuestro Señor Jesucristo,
por el cual el mundo está crucificado para mí
y yo para el mundo."
Isaiah 50:4c–9a I gave my back to those who beat me.
Psalm 116 “I will walk before the Lord, in the land of the living.”
James 2:14–18 Faith, if it does not have works, is dead.
Mark 8:27–35 You are the Christ . . . the Son of Man must suffer greatly
Living the disciple’s life is not easy. Isaiah is proud to serve the LORD, but it’s been difficult. Facing opposition and abuse, he relies on God’s help. James preaches that faith obligates us to do good, actually to act on our beliefs. Jesus tells the crowd that whoever follows him must take up their cross. Listening to today’s readings, let us reflect on how our faith challenges us to do more and comforts us as we act in the Lord’s name. ~ from Pastoral Patterns, fall 2021
Isaías 50, 5–9
Santiago 2, 14–18
Marcos 8, 27–35
Vivir el discipulado no es nada fácil. Isaías está orgulloso de servir al SEÑOR, pero ha sido difícil. Él depende de la ayuda de Dios al enfrentar la oposición y el abuso. Santiago predica que la fe nos obliga a hacer el bien, a ponerla en práctica. Jesús le dice a la multitud que quienes quieran seguirlo deben cargar su propia cruz. Al escuchar las lecturas de hoy reflexionemos sobre cómo nuestra fe nos desafía a hacer más y a la vez nos consuela cuando obramos en el nombre del Señor. ~

What is RCIA?
The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is how people can question, search, and inquire into the Catholic faith. It is a journey that leads many to seek full membership in our Church. For others, this journey may not lead to full membership. Either way, all are welcome to come and see, ask questions, and look more deeply.
Who is the RCIA for?
Seekers and inquirers are non-baptized adults who desire to be fully initiated into the Roman Catholic Church and/or baptized adult Christians who desire full communion in the Roman Catholic Church.
Adults or older children who have not been baptized and desire to join the Church are invited to the ancient celebration of the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults. During this process, which is marked by regular ritual acts, participants are introduced to the liturgy, the teachings, and the life of the Catholic Church.
What happens in RCIA?
RCIA is a Journey, a process that proceeds over weeks and months. It has several steps:
Rite of Election
Sacraments of Initiation
If you are interested or know someone, please contact Samuel Pry, RCIA Coordinator, at 936-825-3597 or

do not hesitate to engage in the battle that is raging around you..."
-Bishop Thomas Olmsted, Diocese of Phoenix
That Man is You! plays a critical role in the fight for the family. It forms men to be strong, faithful leaders of their families. As such, getting more men involved in TMIY is a powerful way to engage in the battle. And the best way to involve more men is by starting new TMIY classes.
Coming this Fall, Unlocking the Mystery of the Bible is an eight-week study program.
A Quick Journey Through the Bible.
Many Catholics want to read the Bible because they know it is God’s Word, but they give up because it seems complicated.

Chart, which arranges the key people, places, and events of Scripture in chronological order,
Unlocking the Mystery of the Bible
will help you discover the story of salvation history and understand how you fit into God’s plan. This eight-session study program includes video presentations that explore all twelve time periods of
