A Word From The Pastor
Happy Thanksgiving: People bound together by gratitude are always discovering and awakening abundant sources of strength. The more thankful a person is, the richer he or she is within. Thankful people store up in their grateful memory all the good experiences of the past, just as the French proverb states: "Gratitude is the heart's memory." What a great day that we are going to celebrate the "Thanksgiving day" in a way to thank the Lord for everything. Also to thank one another for the support and love we receive. I want to thank all of you, my wonderful people in this parish for your care, love and concern toward this parish. I invite you to join me for a Mass on this Wednesday the 21st at 6:00pm to give God thanks for the gift of our faith, our parish and our joys and sorrows. "No duty is more urgent than that of returning thanks." - Saint Ambrose
Blessing of the Parish Hall: We read in 1 Peter 4:8-10 which says Above all, love each other warmly, because love covers many sins. Welcome each other as guests without complaining. Each of you as a good manager must use the gift that God has given you to serve others. I feel that this bible passage is very apt to our family of Precious Blood as we love and care for each other. All of you have been very generous toward your Church, allowing us to renovate our Parish Hall and class rooms. I want to welcome all of you to join us on Saturday, November 24th for Mass at 5:00pm celebrated by Bishop Medley and to come over to the Parish Hall for the blessing and join us for dinner. I hope and pray that you can join us to celebrate our family get together.
The End Things: During the month of November, as we see things around us in nature get dry and again get new life, the Church asks us to reflect on the mystery of life and death. The month began with the celebration of All Saints Day and All Souls Day. Throughout this month we are asked to pray for the dead, especially our friends, family and benefactors. Everyone on this earth at some time will experience the loss of someone they love and their own death too. Belief in the life after death is the most powerful and motivating force all through the ages and even now in our lives. Today's Gospel, taken from Mark offered hope to early Christians persecuted by the Roman Emperor Nero, reminding them of Jesus' words about his glorious return to earth with great power and glory as Judge to gather and reward his elect. Through the parable of the fig tree, Jesus warns us all to read the "signs of the time," reminding us that we must be ever prepared to give an account of our lives to Jesus when he comes in glory as our Judge, because we cannot know "either the day or the hour" of his Second Coming. Let us be ready to meet the Lord anytime by letting the light of Christ shine through our words and actions.
Turkey and the Football: A Football team was on the field during practice, when to their surprise, a big turkey suddenly walked up to the coach and demanded a tryout. "Are you crazy," hollered the coach, "we don't give tryouts to turkeys." Before he knew it the turkey started dashing towards the football and made a fantastic catch. "That was amazing",exclaimed the coach "I have never seen anything like that! How much do you want for a year?" "Don't worry about the money," said the turkey, "let me just ask you something, does the season go past Thanksgiving?”
God’s blessings, Fr. Suneesh Mathew
Thirty Third Sunday in Ordinary Time - November 18, 2018
The readings today speak of the end of the world and the coming of the Kingdom. The bishops' pastoral on stewardship says clearly that "life to come" is in continuity with this present life through the human goods, the worthy human purposes, which people foster now." May our good stewardship cause us to be numbered among the chosen on the last day!
Readings for next weekend will be
Daniel 7:13-14 Revelation 1:5-8 John 18:33b-37
We invite you to read and study these passages for your own reflection as we prepare for the liturgy we will celebrate as a parish community.
