Thirty Third Sunday in Ordinary Time- November, 15, 2015

Happy Sunday!

Given the unrest in Paris, Syria, Iran and Lebanon remaining in a state of prayer seems hopeful.  Today's homily was a challenge when the faithful were asked if we are prepared to offer our throat for the faith?  This was in reference to the persecuted Christians who lost their lives at the hands of lost souls.  Given such pain walking into a facility for people with memory impairment it was time to focus elsewhere.  In the'Communion of the Sick' rite booklet the comments on the reading from John 15:5 was a balm , so we contemplate it this Sunday.

"It is hard to imagine anything more closely connected than a branch and it's trunk.  Baptism grafts us into Jesus Christ and we draw our life from his life.  Even our weakness is turned into strength by the miracle of God's life in us, and the Eucharist keeps strengthening our union with The Lord.  We live in Jesus and Jesus lives in us Helping us to produce good fruit -love, patience, repentance, thankfulness, peace of mind and soul.  Yes, Jesus is the vine, and we are his branches, receiving life from him.  Blessed be the name of Jesus."

Let all visitors pray for peace.

I do appreciate your way of evangelization in this year of Faith. On the day of Lord, let us do those that foster our relation with him: mass, scripture reading

Studying in Jerusalem several years ago, I was very moved by the power the Sabbath has to reclaim and rejuvenate lives of believers, a time for complete rest.

Sunday is the most precious day of the week, time for reflection, Mass, family, and often religious studies, reflection, writing and ministry.
