1) Gospel – MT 18:1-5, 10, 12-14 – If a man has a hundred sheep and one of them goes astray, will he not leave the ninety-nine in the hills and go in search of the stray? And if he finds it, amen, I say to you, he rejoices more over it than over the ninety-nine that did not stray.

3) Cardinal Gerhard Ludwig Müller, prefect emeritus of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, has sharply criticized the “Synodal Way,” a movement among Catholics in Germany that aims to destabilize and uproot core teachings of the Church. In an interview, the 74-year-old Cardinal said that the “Synodal Way,” declared a “reform process” by its initiators, is “over” and was on an“anti-Catholic, wrong track.” 

4) Father Brian Graebe, pastor of the Basilica of St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral in New York, wrote a column pushing back on Father James Martin, SJ, who recently wrote against denying Communion to persistently pro-abortion Catholic politicians. “Church leaders have a responsibility to correct those who use the powers of their public offices to promote, facilitate and expand access to the unique evil of abortion,” Graebe wrote. While denying Communion is a “last resort, reserved for the most egregious violations of justice, enabling the killing of unborn children far exceeds that threshold”
