TODAY (Green) Ex 32:7-11, 13-14; 1 Tim 1:12-17; Lk 15:1-32


NEXT WEEK (Green) Am 8:4-7; 1 Tim 2:1-8 ; Lk 16:1-13


What the shepherd, the woman, and the father all have in common is having lost something dear to them. When they find what they have lost, they rejoice extravagantly. In the parable of the prodigal son, he is found because he chooses to return to his father’s house: he chooses life. By contrast, the older son—in his anger, resentment, and jealousy—is truly the one who is lost because he refuses to rejoice in his father’s mercy and goodness: he chooses death. The extravagant mercy and goodness of our divine Father urges us to choose life over death.

CHRISTIAN STEWARDSHIP:
Commit yourself to God—and the stewardship way of life. Give thanks for all your God-given gifts. Serve God with your time, talent and treasure. Tithing provides regular, predictable source of funding. This reduces the need for constant fundraising activities and frees time and energy for other responsibilities of Christian life. Give with loving, generous heart “Store up for yourselves treasures in heaven…for where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” Mt 6:20-21. 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 support your church.

OUR SICK: Please keep in the charity of your prayers the sick amongst us. Doris Encarnacion, Alberta Hendrickson, Agneta C.

MEMBERS OF THE ARMED FORCES
God of all goodness, look with love on those who wait for the safe return of their loved ones who serve in the armed forces of their country. In faith and hope we turn to you for comfort.
