Twenty-eighth Sunday in Ordinary Time
October 14, 2012

TODAY (Green) Wis 7:7-1, Heb 4:12-13, Mk 10:17-30

NEXT WEEK (Green) Is 53:10-11, Heb 4:14-16, Mk 10:35-43

The man in the gospel “ran up” to Jesus, eager to know how to “inherit eternal life.” Jesus, looking on him with love for having kept the commandments but challenged him to one thing further: he must give up everything and follow Jesus. Following Jesus demands that we choose not to be possessed by things, but by Jesus himself. To be possessed by Jesus we must even give up our greatest possession of all: our very selves. Jesus looks upon us with great love.

CHRISTIAN STEWARDSHIP:
Are you having trouble balancing your budget in these inflationary times? Does it sometimes occur to you that when one puts God first, one’s money is likely to last longer? Scripture does contain God’s written guarantee that tithers will not be losers. You can find that guarantee in Malachi 3:10
“Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house, and try me in this, says the Lord of hosts: Shall I not open for you the floodgates of heaven, to pour down blessing upon you without measure?”
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 becoming GOOD STEWARDS by obtaining OFFERTORY ENVELOPES (available in the Marian Hall) as a weekly 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.
