Thirty-third Sunday in Ordinary Time (Year C) • Jesus wants to remind us: Just hold my hand, and you'll be safe. It's just like getting though a haunted house. My family held Jesus' hand and it brought me to serve as a priest in the Diocese of Green Bay. Don't grab hold of the President or the latest fad. Holding Jesus' hand will help you reach out and make a difference in America.

Point to Ponder: When have I been tempted to let go of Jesus' hand?

Point to Discuss: Talk to a friend about a time when God's plans seemed strange, but then they worked out.

Point of Action: Cross the aisle to shake hands with someone whose political views differ from yours. Find something you can agree on. Work together for a positive change.
