TODAY (White) 2 Sm 5:1-3; Col 1:12-20; Lk 23:35-43

NEXT WEEK (Violet) Is 2:1-5; Rom 13:11-14; Mt 24:37-44

“If you are a King…save yourself” the soldiers jeered at Jesus on the cross. So did the rulers and one criminal crucified with Jesus taunt him about saving himself. But they misunderstood what “save yourself” means. The rulers, soldiers, and one criminal thought being saved meant that Jesus should come down from the cross, avoid any more suffering, certainly avoid death. But Jesus shows us through his words to the other criminal what being saved really means. “you will be with me in Paradise” Living Liturgy

Catholic Campaign for Human Development
Today the annual Campaign for Human development will be taken up in all the Parishes of the Diocese. Seventy-five percent (75%) of the donations are sent to the CCHD National Office, to support anti-poverty projects across the country. Twenty-five percent (25%) is kept here in the Diocese to fund local self-help initiatives to benefit our Local Communities.

On behalf of Bishop Herbert Bevard and the Diocese of the Virgin Islands, thanks to all those who contributed to the Philippine Community, during their times of disasters. May God bless you all.

A Thanksgiving Prayer


Oh, God, when I have food, help me to remember the hungry;
When I have work, help me to remember the jobless;
When I have a warm home, help me to remember the homeless;
When I am without pain, help me to remember those who suffer;
And remembering, help me to destroy my complacency
and bestir my compassion. Make me concerned enough
To help, by word and deed, those who cry out for
what we take for granted. “For I was hungry and you gave Me food.
I was thirsty and you gave Me drink.
I was a stranger and you welcomed Me…”Mt. 25:35
