TWENTY-EIGHTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME

October 8/9, 2011

FOOD FOR THE WEEK

 

Reading I                             Isaiah 25.6-10a

Responsorial Psalm:              I shall dwell in the house of the Lord my whole

                                            life  long.

Reading II                            Philippians 4.12-14, 19-20

Gospel:                                Matthew 22.1-14

 

·         Can you imagine throwing a party that nobody comes to?  Or the few who turn up staying just a short time and then go away?  It’s something like that in the gospel story today.

·         What does God do? God really goes after us.  God wants us there and wants a full table.  The table of God is for everyone.  He goes right into the middle of life to look for all sorts of people --- not just one type of person.  God wants our Yes.

ARE YOU NEW TO OUR PARISH?

            Welcome to all who want to make their faith home here! You may have come from other places. You may have been “away for a while”. Be assured that we love to have you among us. We would appreciate it very much if you identified yourself at Mass. It would also help if you would take the time to fill out a registration form. The next time you are with us, you may leave it in the collection basket or give it to one of the ushers or to the priest.

            Welcome.

Thanksgiving Delights

 

On Thanksgiving Day we’re thankful for
Our blessings all year through,
For family we dearly love,
For good friends, old and new.

For sun to light and warm our days,
For stars that glow at night,
For trees of green and skies of blue,
And puffy clouds of white.

We’re grateful for our eyes that see
The beauty all around,
For arms to hug, and legs to walk,
And ears to hear each sound.

The list of all we’re grateful for
Would fill a great big book;
Our thankful hearts find new delights
Everywhere we look!
