Domenica 32A Del Tempo Ordinario
Sostenuti dalla speranza nella risurrezione, sette fratelli insieme con la loro madre affrontano una morte atroce. La fede nella vita futura si fonda sulla risurrezione di Gesù che apre orizzonti nuovi in cui la nostra vita e la nostra condizione saranno completamente diverse rispetto a quaggiù.
From Fr. Gael: What I don’t understand is why the sixth and seventh brother didn’t get out of town and away from their deadly sister-in-law! Humor aside, the Sadducees who are taking their turn at swinging at Jesus come up with the specious example to test Jesus. They are all about legality. Jesus tells them so in his answer to them about marriage. Such norms will be superfluous in the next world in which the Sadducees don’t believe anyway. So, what is this all about, other than trying to discredit Jesus since the Pharisees failed to do so. It is amazing to see all the effort being expended rather than listening to what Jesus says. An open head and an open heart would stand them so much better than their hard heads and obdurate hearts. And while we look at them, we might check our own heads and hearts out to see where they are. –Fr. Gael Sullivan, SDB

“As human beings, we have a natural fear of death and we rebel against its apparent finality. Faith teaches us that the fear of death is lightened by a great hope, the hope of eternity, which gives our lives their fullest meaning. The God who is love offers us the promise of eternal life through the death and resurrection of His Son.” Therefore, “in Christ, death no longer appears as an abyss of emptiness, but rather a path to life which will never end.” –Pope Benedict XVI, All Souls Day, 2011.
Religious Education-CCD: The 2019-2020 Religious Education-CCD program has begun. We still welcome and accept students from Pre-K to Grade 8. Our program is focused on Public school students who do not have an opportunity to have religious education in their school. Classes are held every Sunday from 9:45am to 11:00am. Students are asked to attend the 8:45am Mass, and we meet at the Pre-K room. The goal of the program is to help children to grow in faith and working together with parents we hope to help the children come to experience God in their own lives and to familiarize them with the teachings and traditions of the Catholic Church.
Religious Education – RCIA -Rite of Chris Initiation for Adults: We welcome adults who would like to enter or inquire the Catholic faith. Or those who have not received the Sacraments of Confirmation and or Eucharist. Classes are held every Thursday at 7:00pm to 8:30pm at the Parish Rectory basement.
