PARISH e-NEWS & UPDATES - November 15, 2020
LIVE THE LITURGY : Inspiration for the Week
Titles and privileges, palaces and guards, banquets and benefits, servants and fi ne living, are all things earthly folks associate with kings and royalty. These have no place in Christ. To understand the kingdom of Christ and what it means to have Christ as our king, one must be willing and able to understand transformation, engagement and empowerment. To live in the kingship of Christ, we have to live deeply and contemplatively; allowing God to change not only how we act, but how we feel, think, and see. It is not an easy journey or one that is always welcomed. Sometimes, it is easier and safer to live as if Christ were our earthly king. It’s a more black and white world. But the kingdom of Christ exists in a world of gray where the hungry, thirsty, those who are strangers, naked, ill, and imprisoned fi nd a welcome home. It is a kingdom that doesn’t always make sense, where the last are first and the weakest are most strong. World economics and secular philosophy doesn’t like this kind of king. Maybe that is why they crucified him the first time and continue to. Whatever we do to the least of God’s children, we do to God. Do you really want to inherit the kingdom?

2nd collection for the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD)

CCHD is sponsored by the USCCB, United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. Nearly 1 in 6 in the U.S. live in poverty. CCHD offers a hand up, not a hand out. 25% of the CCHD collection stays within our community. 75% is pooled to support national grants. Last year, two of the grant programs operate locally. Support Catholic Social Teachings and stand in solidarity for human value, dignity, and justice. Donate to the 2020 CCHD campaign.
