As members of the parish faith community, it is our responsibility to remember both in concrete and spiritual ways those who cannot celebrate with us each week because they are ill. Those who are sick in turn, remember all of us daily in their prayers and in their sufferings. We experience many blessings because of their remembering us. And so...please remember in your prayers: Irene Rowe Mary Ayello Florence Magro Anthony R.

Page Four OCTOBER: RESPECT LIFE MONTH October is annually observed as Respect Life Month in Catholic Churches across our nation. Life is threatened because we no longer under‐
stand what it means to be human, and what our humanity calls forth from us in our responsibil‐
ity to care for other persons. John Paul II in his encyclical the Gospel of Life (Evangelium Vitae, EV) tells us that “For the Christian, it is an abso‐
lute imperative to respect, love and promote the life of every brother and sister, in accor‐
dance with the requirements of God’s bountiful love in Jesus Christ.” n. 77 Respect is the acknowledgement that all hu‐
man persons are made in the image of God. It is important that children learn at an early age to recognize that they are a human person be‐
cause they possess a God‐given dignity. This can be done by emphasizing their Heavenly Father’s love for them. “See what love the Father has given us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are… Beloved, we are God’s children now.” (1 John 3:16) “In every child which is born and in every per‐
son who lives or dies we see the image of God’s glory. We celebrate this glory in every human being, a sign of the living God, an icon of Jesus Christ.“ (EV 84) Respect obligates us to revere and honor not only others, but ourselves as well. Young children can learn to respect them‐
selves by how they: treat their bodies; what they watch on T.V. or DVD; what games they play; what time they take to pray and thank God for His gifts to them; how they respect their parents. Older children can be taught ways in which our dignity as human persons calls us to love others. Here love is not an emotion but a call to action. Our attitude should be to care for another as a person for whom God has made us responsible. This care for another “cannot tolerate bias and discrimination, for human life is sacred and inviolable at every stage and in every situation, it is an indivisible good. We need to ‘show care’ for all life and for the life of everyone.” (EV 87) Children in grades 4‐6 can be introduced to issues such as abortion and euthanasia as violations of our human dignity . They can be shown ways to care for the elderly, take part in prayer for an end to abortion, lend help to a neighbor in need or help at a food pantry in the community. These are just a few examples of caring for our neighbor. Students in junior and senior high school need to be engaged in the life issues of our day. In order to build a culture of life, we must be actively pro‐life and contribute “to the renewal of society through the promotion of the common good. It is impossible to further the common good without acknowledging and defending the right to life, upon which all the other inalienable rights of individuals are founded and from which they develop.” (EV 101) A cate‐
chesis on basic moral and life principles found in the Catechism of the Catholic Church 2258—2317 give students a foundation for promoting the culture of life in their daily living. www.fargodiocese.org Page Five 28th Ordinary Sunday LADIES OF ST.

October 12, 2014 28th Ordinary Sunday ZBIÓRKA ŻYWNOŚCI DLA MISJONARZY UBOGICH 25/26 PADZIERNIK Drodzy Parafianie i Przyjaciele Missionaries of the Poor, Prosimy Was gorąco o wsparcie zbiórki żywności i środków higienicznych dla najbiedniejszych z biednych ‐ 96 sierot, kalek i bezdomnych znajdujących się pod opieką Misjonarzy Ubogich w Port au Price na Haiti. Ośrodek ten zamieszkuje obecnie 51 chłopców i 45 dziewcząt. Około 97% z nich jest chorych fizycznie i/lub umysłowo. Dzieci są całkowicie zależne od pomocy innych ‐ muszą być karmione, kąpane i ubierane. Większość z nich to sieroty, inne zaś zostały porzucone przez rodziny. Misjonarska posługa braci, której poświęcili swoje życie, to prowadzenie stałych schronisk dla bezdomnych, zapewnianie biednym dzieciom bezpłatnej edukacji, posiłków, a także pomocy medycznej i duszpaterskiej. Zgromadzenie Misjonarzy Ubogich utrzymuje się jedynie z darów i datków LUDZI DOBREJ WOLI ‐ takich jak Ty. Zbliżają się święta Bożego Narodzenia, dlatego już dzisiaj prosimy Cię, abyś otworzył swoje serce na potrzeby innych i podzielił się z nimi chlebem, bo większą radością jest dawanie niż otrzymywanie. Prosimy, wesprzyj zbiórkę żywności, która ma dotrzec na Haiti już w grudniu .

Page Twelve October 12, 2014 28th Ordinary Sunday Page Thirteen ON INVITATIONS, AND PREPARING FOR THE FEAST Copyright 2014 by John B. Reynolds ([email protected]) I mentioned last week that my wife’s niece Jessica and her best friend Cory were married recently. What I didn’t mention‐‐and what seems appropriate to mention now, in consideration of today’s readings‐‐is that because the priest who married them (Fr. Andrew) couldn’t attend the evening reception, Jessica asked me if I would say grace before the meal. I was honored to do so. I noted before I began, however, that while saying grace at every meal is good and proper, saying grace at this particular meal was especially good and proper because it would be the first meal that Cory and Jessica would share as husband and wife. Then I asked everyone in attendance to just consider this for a second. I asked them to think of all the meals they’ve shared over the years with persons they love. All of the hot dogs in the back yard. All of the burgers and fries in the car. All of the pizzas on Friday night in front of the TV. I maintained that regardless of venue and regardless of fare, sharing a meal with someone you love is an intimate‐‐even sacred‐‐act. Which, I said, is the very essence of the Mass Fr. Andrew celebrated earlier in the day. For what is Eucharist if not Jesus sharing an intimate and sacred meal with the persons he loves? Not to mention a foreshadowing of the heavenly banquet… All of which brings us to today’s readings. My mouth nearly waters to hear Isaiah speaking of the feast: “On this mountain the Lord of hosts will provide for all peoples a feast of rich food and choice wines, juicy, rich food and pure, choice wines.” And Jesus then speaks in parables to the religious elite, explaining that the kingdom of heaven is like a wedding banquet hosted by a king for his son. The king dispatches his servants to summon the invited guests to the feast, but the guests refuse. The king sends his servants a second time, telling them to say, “Behold, I have prepared my banquet, my calves and fattened cattle are killed, and everything is ready; come to the feast.” They refuse again, killing the servants, and the bad guys get their due recom‐
pense. Finally the king sends his servants out into the world to gather all they can find, “bad and good alike,” filling the entire hall. But one of these guests is not appropriately dressed, prompting the king to ask, “My friend, how is it that you came in here without a wedding garment?” When the guest has no response, the king directs his attendants, “Bind his hands and feet, and cast him into the darkness outside, where there will be wailing and grinding of teeth.” At first blush, this seems harsh. At second blush, it’s con‐
cerning for all of us who claim to follow the Christ. Per a popular maxim, “90% of success is just showing up.” This may play in some contexts, but not in discipleship. If the wedding garment represents our repentance and the turning of our hearts in faith, then our actions must ever grow from this recognition of Jesus as Lord. In other words, we need to wear Christ every day. Every day, we need to ponder our own invitation to the feast, and say‐
ing grace, accordingly prepare. St. Ferdinand Parish
