Twenty-Third Sunday in Ordinary Time, September 5, 2021

“Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to the Jordan, unto John, to be baptized by him. But John stayed him, saying: I ought to be baptized by thee, and comest thow to me? And Jesus answering, said to him: Suffer it to be so now. For so it becometh us to fulfill all justice. Then he suffered him. And Jesus being baptized, forthwith came out of the water: and lo, the heavens were opened to him: and he saw the Spirit of God descend as a dove and coming upon him.” (Matthew 4:13-16, Douay-Rheims Holy Bible)

“On July 25,1968, shortly after the close of the Second Vatican Council, Pope Paul VI promulgated a much-anticipated encyclical entitled Humanae Vitae. Historically, it was a time of much confusion: the sexual revolution was in full swing, the Pill was being hailed as the long-awaited perfect contraceptive to cure the social ills related to overpopulation, and even Catholic clergy advised the pope to reconcile the Church with the times in response to the report of the commission established by Pope John XXIII.” (Kimberly Hahn, Life-Giving Love, p. 21)

“God Ineffable—whose ways are mercy and truth, whose will is omnipotence itself, and whose wisdom
‘reaches from end to end mightily, and orders all things sweetly’—having foreseen from all eternity the
lamentable wretchedness of the entire human race which would result from the sin of Adam, decreed, by
a plan hidden from the centuries, to complete the first work of his goodness by a mystery yet more
wondrously sublime through the Incarnation of the Word.”
(Apostolic Constitution of Pius IX, Ineffabilis Deus, The Immaculate Conception, December 8, 1854.)
