PRAISE TO OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST, KING OF THE UNIVERSE…
Today is the 34th Sunday in Ordinary Time. This last Sunday of Ordinary Time is also called the Feast of Christ the King, or the longer name above. The First Reading from the Old Testament Book of Ezekiel pre-figures Jesus as the Good Shepherd. “I myself will look after and tend my sheep.” The Second Reading from the New Testament First Letter of Paul to the Corinthians makes reference to the Eternal Kingdom Jesus Christ will establish for all people for all time. The last thing to be subject is death. Then He will return all things seen and unseen back to the Father. The Gospel for today’s feast challenges us as the fit or unfit servants of the King of the Universe. How do WE proclaim the Kingdom of God by our thoughts, words and deeds? We will have to stand in judgement before the King of the universe and face the consequences of our choices and our behavior on earth. “Whatever you did to my least ones, you did it to Me.”
PRAYERS FOR SR. PAT…
Our Worship Coordinator, Sr. Pat Whalen, suffered a stroke on November 2nd, and was taken to a local hospital. I am happy to report that on Tuesday, November 14th, Sr. Pat
and her nurse advocate made it safely by ambulance to the Congregation of Saint Joseph Motherhouse in Nazareth (near Kalamazoo) for therapy and assisted living. Sr. Jackie from her order, the Congregation of St. Joseph, visited Sr. Pat at the hospital, extending the love and prayers of her community of sisters to us for Sr. Pat. If by some miracle, Sr. Pat regains her mobility and strength, she may very well make her way back to us. Speaking of miracles, Sr. Jackie told us that Blessed Fr. Solanus Casey only needs one more miracle for sainthood. The Sisters at Nazareth are united in praying to Blessed Solanus Casey to intercede on Sr. Pat’s behalf so that she may be that last miracle. Let’s unite our prayers for Sr. Pat with theirs! In case you would like to drop a note of encouragement at the parish office, we will see that Sr. Pat gets it.
