Mass Intentions for the week …

Twenty-eighth Sunday in Ordinary Time
October 12, 2014
We ponder the kingdom of heaven as a wedding feast.
God has great things prepared for those who are invited
into the kingdom. But not all those who are invited accept
the invitation. And some who accept are not prepared to
enter. God’s invitation is gracious and open to all,
but we must respond.

Marriage Moment “I know indeed how to live in
humble circumstances; I know also how to live with
abundance.” (Ph 4:12) St. Paul gives us this lifestyle
wisdom probably earned by receiving hospitality of
many different kinds. Does one of you desire more
creature comforts than the other? Be flexible.
Parenting Pointer If your child has a problem and
wants your input, but you are caught off guard, try
saying “Tell me more about that.” Or “What do you
think you should do?” Responses like this can buy
you time and clarify the situation.Works with spouses
too. By Susan Vogt
I can do all things in him who strengthens me.—

St. Vincent De Paul
St Paul gives us a remarkable insight into the
daily working out of his personal life. He says "I know
how to live without stuff and I know how to live in
abundance." There's a secret, he says, in order to live at
peace in every circumstance, and that secret is joining
oneself to the will of Christ Jesus, who strengthens us in
good times and in bad. Without Christ, as Paul
mentioned last week, we tend to become quite anxious
about the ups and downs of our life. But in Jesus, "all
things work together for good." In spite of all the faithfilled insight, however, Paul does insist that "It was kind
of you to share in my distress." And that's what we
need to remember as we bring food and finances for the
poor. We share in the distress of the human family, we
alleviate the anxiety, at least for a day, for a week. Please
remember to keep our St Joseph Conference food
pantry on your grocery list. Plan ahead for the coming
holidays to share your abundance with those who have
little. Then Christ will be your peace.
Food pantry is open Mondays and Thursdays
from 9 a.m. until 11 a.m.
The Knights of Columbus invite you and your family to
