                                                      The word of God is living and effective,
                                                       sharper than any two-edged sword.
                                                                         — Hebrews 4:12a

From the Padre’s Desk:
My Dear Friends:

        In today’s readings, we discover that material wealth alone does not keep us from discipleship. We will see that
 there are other gifts more important than material wealth, but even so, it is how we use our gifts that matters most.
        Today’s scriptures point to the value of the gifts of wisdom, trusting in God, and letting our actions reflect
 the love of God from within. It is not gold that causes us to fall, but rather the desire for gold above all other things.
 From the readings in Wisdom and Hebrews, we find the source of God’s gifts in our lives. Wisdom is more valuable
 than worldly possessions. In Hebrews, we are challenged to look at our own values and admit honestly what controls
 our lives.
In Christ
Fr. William

ROSARY NOVENA FOR LIFE AND LIBERTY: We invite all our parishioners to pray the rosary from October 14
through October 21, after each mass. It is our hope that this Rosary Novena for Life and Liberty will inspire Catholics
to learn more about our courageous forebears in the faith and even consider making a pilgrimage to one of the many
shrines and devotional sites throughout the United States.
BIBLE STUDY: We will be having a Bible study in Spanish every Friday at 7pm in the basement of the Rectory.
SECOND COLLECTION: The second collection for Saturday, October 13 and 14 is for the World Mission Collection.
In 1926 Pope Pius XI instituted Mission Sunday for the whole Church with the first worldwide Mission Sunday
collection taking place in October 1927. The Mission Sunday collection is always taken on the next to last Sunday during
the month of October. That day is celebrated in all the local Churches as the feast of catholicity and universal solidarity
so Christians the world over will recognize their common responsibility with regard to the evangelization of the world.
NEXT WEEKEND SECOND COLLECTION: Is for the Debt Reduction Collection.
SANCTUARY FLOWERS: If you are interested in bringing flowers for the Sanctuary, please sign your name on the
form that is at the back of the Church.

God continues to use health care professionals as human instruments of healing, all are invited to attend this annual
Mass, especially those who work as health care professionals and those who are students preparing to serve the health
care needs of those who will be entrusted to their care.
