"No one can make excuses, because anyone can love God; and he does not ask the soul for more than to love him, because he loves the soul, and it is his love."
— Blessed Angela of Foligno
There is daily mass this Friday at 9:00 a.m.
(The Rosary is recited at 8:40 a.m.)
THANKSGIVING FOOD BASKETS
Planning for the annual Thanksgiving food basket distribution is underway. Over the next 3 weeks will graciously accept your donations of vegetables and canned goods for the baskets. Because of Covid we will not distribute bags as in years past, but ask that you leave your donations on the tables at the side entrance. You can donate
any or all
of the following items:
5lb bag potatoes
canned green beans
canned peaches or fruit cocktail
If you wish to donate a turkey please call Maryellen at the rectory. We will accept frozen turkeys on November 23 from 9am-12pm. We do not have freezer space to store them. The need for food is even greater this year because of the economy.
If you are in need of food this Thanksgiving, the dates to sign up for a basket will be in the bulletin soon.
MEDITATION OF THE DAY
"The vow of poverty is a generous renunciation and detachment from the heavy burden of temporal things. It is an alleviation of the spirit, it is a relief afforded to human infirmity, the liberty of a noble heart to strive after eternal and spiritual blessings. It is a satiety and abundance, in which the thirst after earthly treasures is allayed, and a sovereignty and ownership, in which a most noble enjoyment of all riches is established. All this, my daughter, and many other blessings are contained in voluntary poverty, and all this the sons of the world are ignorant and deprived of, precisely because they are lovers of earthly riches and enemies of this holy and opulent poverty.
VERSE OF THE DAY
"We know that we belong to God, and the whole world is under the power of the evil one. We also know that the Son of God has come and has given us discernment to know the one who is true. And we are in the one who is true, in his Son Jesus Christ. He is the true God and eternal life."
1 John 5:19-20
We hope everyone has a blessed day! Enjoy the sunshine!
