32nd Sunday in Ordinary Time – Sunday, November 7th, 2021

In your prayers kindly remember the sick and those who care for them, the lonely, the handicapped, those isolated, and those who have died, especially Sandra MacKenzie, Murrray Mathieu, Harriette Gagnon & Audrey Laroche.

 

Introduction to the Liturgy Theme: Sacrificial Giving – Both widows in today’s readings teach us something about the meaning of sacrifice. Elijah is fed with the last of the oil and flour left to the Zarephath widow. The improvised woman, observed by Jesus in the temple, gave to God of what was necessary for her to live. In both instances charity cost a great deal.  Sacrifice of different order appears in today’s reading from Hebrews. The one sacrifice of Christ perdures before God and will never be repeated.

 

From the Rector’s Desk Thursday, November 11th, we as Canadians observe Remembrance Day. We pause in silence to remember those who died in war and to pray for the victims of aggression and inhumanity throughout the world. It is a day to pray for peace and to consider what we are doing as individuals, as a community and as a nation to bring God’s peace into the world. It is a time for us to pray for our soldiers serving the cause of peace in troubled spots throughout the world and for their families anxiously waiting their return here at home. It is also a day for us as a believing community to rededicate ourselves by prayer and action to the ideals Jesus gives us in the beatitudes.
