33 Sunday C - Liturgical Prayers

Neither death nor life,
neither the present nor the future
nor any other creature
can separate us from the love of God,
the love he has made visible in Christ Jesus our Lord.
May the Lord Jesus be always with you.
R/ And also with you.
Introduction by the Celebrant
A. We Are People Of Hope
In all ages there have been "prophets of doom," as the good Pope John XXIII called them. They are people so scared by the problems of their time that they think the end of the world is near. Our day is one of rapid changes, much violence and hunger and suffering. Now we know about them immediately via television and other media. No wonder that many sects arise and speculate about the end of our world. The message of today's liturgy is: don't be afraid. Keep trusting in God, be a steadfast Christian and bear witness to God's love. You are in his hands, and Christ is here among us.

32nd Week- Nov 11-16 - Reflections

 Nov 11 Monday (St. Martin of Tours, Bishop) : Lk 17:1-6 1 And he said to his disciples, “Temptations to sin are sure to come; but woe to him by whom they come! 2 It would be better for him if a millstone were hung round his neck and he were cast into the sea, than that he should cause one of these little ones to sin.  3 Take heed to yourselves; if your brother sins, rebuke him, and if he repents, forgive him; 4 and if he sins against you seven times in the day, and turns to you seven times, and says, `I repent,’ you must forgive him.” 5 The apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith!” 6 And the Lord said, “If you had faith as a grain of mustard seed, you could say to this sycamore tree, `Be rooted up, and be planted in the  sea,’ and it would obey you. For USCCB video reflections:
