Meditation on this Week’s Scripture Readings:
If your life seems confusing and shrouded in mystery,
remember that God has the answers to all your
questions. After all, God created you according to a
divine plan. We are assured, in the first reading, that
God “will destroy the veil that veils all peoples” and
“wipe away the tears from every face.” The Lord wants
us to seek Him and say, “This is the Lord for whom we
looked; let us rejoice and be glad that He has saved us!”
Then we will delight in discovering, as the psalmist says,
“The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.” Our
shepherd leads, restores, gives, overflows, and invites us.
As Paul says in the
second reading, “My
God will fully supply
whatever you need, in
accord with His glorious
riches.” In the Gospel,
Jesus tells us that the
kingdom of heaven is
like a wedding feast and everyone is invited: “Everything
is ready; come to the feast.”
You are personally invited to the Lord’s wedding feast;
will you attend?
The Sanctuary Lamp this week is in
memory of Theodore Waneski.

The US Conference of Catholic Bishops has asked that a
special collection be taken up this weekend
to support the Christian victims of violence
in the Middle East in the past several
months. The impetus for the special appeal
is a “great concern for the ongoing crisis in
the Middle East, the cradle of Christianity.”
Archbishop Kurtz explained in a letter sent
to all United States Bishops, “Our Church
mourns the terrible suffering of Christians and other
innocent victims of violence in Iraq, Syria and Gaza who are
struggling to survive, protect their children and live with
dignity in dire conditions.”
Money given to the collection will be disbursed for
humanitarian needs by Catholic Relief Services and other
Catholic agencies working in partnership with the local
These organizations have well-established
partnerships with the Catholic Church in the region, which
allow them to respond quickly and efficiently to victims in
some of the hardest to reach areas. Collection funds will
also be used to support Church programs to aid persecuted
Christians and to respond to rebuilding needs of Catholic
dioceses in the impacted areas.
Most importantly, please keep our suffering brothers and
sisters in the Middle East in your personal prayers and Mass
