A Word From The Pastor
Happy Thanksgiving: On Tuesdays and Thursdays I hear our office doorbell often and every five minutes our office phone rings. Mostly those are people who need aid with their utilities, food, rent etc. and our wonderful St. Vincent DePaul people give them a hand. There are a lot of homeless people looking for a place to stay and many look for a meal in our own area. It could be due to their choices or circumstances that they were brought up. Let us reach out to our brethren that we know who are having tough times. Let us always remember to give thanks to God for our life and all our joys and sorrows. And in so doing we grow in the love of God. It is in gratitude for the gifts that we grow in the love of the Giver. As we say in the preface at Mass, “Our act of thanksgiving adds nothing to your greatness but makes us grow in grace through Jesus Christ, our Lord.” I want to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving and I want to invite you to be part of our Thanksgiving Mass on Wednesday the 22nd at 6:00pm. “Lord, give me a grateful heart,” so that I may always remember and give thanks, and in so doing I may grow in the love of You.
Memorial of St. Cecilia: St Cecilia was born in Rome in the 3rd century. From her early age, she had determined to remain single for the love of God; she used to fast and perform all kinds of penance and charitable works. But her parents had other designs for her and so gave her in marriage to a young patrician named Valerian and there is a nice story that tells how she survived to be a virgin which can be found if you look at the history of St. Cecilia. She is said to have been beheaded with a sword for her faith. An early Roman Christian church, Santa Cecilia, was founded in the fourth century in the Trastevere section of Rome, reputedly on the site of the house in which she lived. A number of musical compositions are dedicated to her, and her feast day, November 22, became the occasion for concerts and musical festivals. As we honor and remember St Cecilia we thank our Musician, Ray Jones and all our choir members who help us to pray better. May the virgin Martyr Cecilia intercedes for all of us.
Fighting with Poems: There was a couple who always fought. Both were very highly educated and so whenever they fought instead of resorting to shouting, abusing or physical force... they wrote poems to each other. Husband wrote to Wife: I wrote your name on sand it got washed away. I wrote your name in air, it was blown away. Then I wrote your name on my heart and I had a Heart Attack. Then Wife wrote back: God saw me hungry, he created pizza. He saw me thirsty, he created Pepsi. He saw me in the dark, he created light. He saw me without problems and he created YOU. Then Husband wrote: Twinkle twinkle little star. You should know what you are. And once you know what you are. Mental hospital is not so far. Then Wife wrote: The rain makes all things beautiful. The grass and flowers too. If rain makes all things beautiful. Why doesn't it rain on you? Then husband wrote: Roses are red; Violets are blue. Monkeys like you should be kept in a zoo. Wife replied: Don't feel so angry you will find me there too. Not in a cage, but laughing at you!!

"Well done, my good and faithful servant"
How can you make a return to the Lord for all that he has given you? We respond to God's love for us by loving him in return, by giving to him our lives as he first gave his life for us.
