Thirty Third Sunday in Ordinary Time-November 14th, 2021

Happy Sunday!

Today is observed as the fifth World Day for the poor. Here are the words of Pope Francis for contemplation. https://www.vatican.va/content/francesco/en/messages/poveri/documents/20210613-messaggio-v-giornatamondiale-poveri-2021.html

After stopping at a local shop for food the woman was in her car reading messages on the phone when a man cleanly dressed approached the opened car window. Mam, excuse me, I am hungry. (There was a fast food restaurant next door.) May you help me get something to eat? Startled, the woman was not expecting this approach even less so by a cleanly clad and with a mannerly request. The man went on...'whatever you may give from your heart...' The woman herself a little hungry knew cupboards of food were at home and handed this most unlikely man enough to fill for a few meals.

This Sunday in solidarity with the poor we may ask for what do we hunger? Where is our own poverty? How are we answering the plea--May you help me get something to eat? For us indeed is the bread of life, the Eucharist.

Peace!
