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.

Weldon and Holly Banks 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 Trunk ‘n Treat after the 5 p.m. mass Saturday, October 25th.
