May Jesus Christ, our hope of resurrection, be with you!
Although Veteran’s Day was celebrated last Saturday today, we acknowledge all Veterans and especially those from our parish. We thank you them for their service, and we thank them for protecting our country and others countries. Let us also remember all our soldiers who gave of their lives to protect our country. We remember them and acknowledge them.
Next week is Thanksgiving Day. Mass will be celebrated at 10am. Let us come together as a parish family to celebrate this day and to give thanks to God for His ever presence in our lives. No matter our life situation, we should pause on this day to give thanks. I hope to see you on this day at Mass before you begin your Thanksgiving day.
I ask everyone to continue to pray for peace in our world and for respect for human life. Please pray for an end to these senseless wars and pray for all the innocent people caught in the middle of these wars. Add to your prayer list an end to the gun violence that continues to plague our cities throughout the country. Let us flood heaven with our prayers and special requests.
Today’s readings is preparing us for the end of our earthly journey. Sometimes we may think we will live on for a long time. Only God knows when our time is up. However, we are encouraged to live our lives according to God’s law and to live it to the fullest with charity, kindness, justice, service, faith, and happiness. Today’s readings remind us to live our earthly journey with these virtues and at the same time to stay awake and ready ourselves for the coming of the Lord. So, stay awake.
Peace and Blessings, Msgr. Britto
