To Be Faithful Servants Walking God's Talk
This Weeks Readings: Exodus 22.21-27; Psalm 18; 1 Thessalonians 1.1-5c-10; Matthew 22.34-40.
Our God of compassion cries out to us for justice to the disadvantaged among us. He sternly warns against exploitation of the lowly, for the Lord hears the cry of the poor. We are called to welcome all people and enable them to know Jesus; we are challenged to become imitators of his love. We are called to be ministers of hospitality, to introduce to others the two greatest laws: the love of God with the totality of our being, and the love of the other to the same degree we would love ourselves.
Next Week's Readings: Lamentations 3.17-26; Psalm 103; 1 Corinthians 15.51-57; Matthew 11.25-30.
When: The weekends of October 25/26 & November 8/9, 2014, after all Masses
November 23, 2014 at San Lorenzo, after the 10:15 am Mass
Where: In the Large Hall
As Faithful Servants Walking God’s Talk, we are called to make use of our gifts in time and talent by getting involved in parish ministries.
For those discerning a call to ministry, we encourage you to reflect on your gifts and interests and to pray for God’s guidance by attending the upcoming Parish Ministry Fair. This will provide an opportunity for parishioners to learn more about the various ministries in our parish. We look forward to seeing you!
