TODAY (Green) 1 Kgs 19:16b, 19-21; Gal 5:1, 13-18; Lk 9:51-62

NEXT WEEK (Green) Is 66:10-14c; Gal 6:14-18; Lk 10:1-12, 17-20

As Jesus “resolutely determines to journey to Jerusalem,” he encounters a number of conflicts. Jesus is not welcome in a Samaritan village, he rebukes disciples who want to take revenge, he predicts the lack of comfort and security for his followers, and he chides those who have excuses for not immediately following him. These conflicts arise because the journey to Jerusalem entails death. Nevertheless, the journey must be made because this is the only journey that leads to life.

To make our goal, we need everyone’s participation. For your convenience, you can still make a pledge, and pay it in installments. The Bishop’s Appeal will formally end on December 31, 2013, so that you have ample time to fulfill your pledge. Our Catholic Schools, Catholic Charities and Evangelization efforts need your support.

MAKE STEWARDSHIP YOUR WAY OF LIFE:
God has given us all we have. God gave you your life, health and property, the earth and the Gospel. Everything is a gift from God. Jesus invites us to be his disciples. You are invited to answer Jesus’ call to follow his example of Christian living. Disciples are stewards. Being a disciple means committing your heart and mind—your whole life—to God. Being a good steward is part of discipleship. Being a good steward means being generous with your time, talent and treasure.
REMEMBER, Tithing becomes easier if we set aside the Lord’s portion and give it to him.
Your giving is the key to the success of the church plans and programs. To help us meet our obligations, please pray about TITHING and become good STEWARDS by obtaining Offertory Envelopes available in the Marian Hall as a reminder to supp ort your church.
