May Jesus Christ, the Good Shepherd who leads us to everlasting life, be with you!
Like the start of the summer months with the heat, the start of fall season came in with some chilling weather. Perhaps this is an indication that we will have a cold winter. For those who like the cool weather, enjoy it. For the rest of us ,stay warm. A question to be asked: “will there be an Indian Summer this year?” We are best to experience the four seasons, enjoy them.
May we keep in prayer the people in California and Oregon who continue to face the wild fires. Lives have been lost as well as properties. People have been displaced and anxieties continue to rise. We must join our prayer with the people in California and Oregon for relief and safety.
In our parish bulletin, there is a request for us to pray around the noon hour for our country, city, and communities. With all the events taking place in our country, and world, please take a moment each day to pray and ask for God’s mercy, kindness, and blessing.
For the past several Sundays, o scripture readings have been tapping un on our minds and hearts, challenging us on so many levels of our life. Once again, this week, we are challenged,. In the Gospel of Matthew, Jesus says to the people: “The one who obeys the Lord, even reluctantly, is the one who does the will of the Father.” The scriptures are encouraging us to be on the same page as Jesus: generous, kind, forgiving, merciful, committed to the kingdom, devoted to the faith and to God. We must have the same attitude as Christ Jesus. If for whatever reason, our minds and hearts are not the same as Christ Jesus, we are encouraged to ask for mercy for our failings and God’s grace to change our minds an hearts. As Michael Jackson sang in one of his songs: “Look in the mirror and make that change.”
