Phase 5 short version

May you be praised, my Lord, through your creatures,
Above all through brother Sun,
By whom we have the day.

-Saint Francis of Assisi,
Canticle of the Sun

Man of Many Talents

When you think of Jesus, what do you think was his job? Healer of the sick, the lame and the blind, as in today’s gospel? Preacher? Teacher? Leader of men? Messiah? The second reading from Hebrews reminds us of his main duty: Priest. It calls him a High Priest, referring to the Jewish priesthood in which one priest was chosen each year to offer the most important sacrifices and so appeal to God for forgiveness of the peoples’ sins. Now this may sound like primitive religion, but it actually lets us understand Jesus even better.

The high priest offered sacrifice for his own sins, as well as the peoples’. While Jesus did not sin, he experienced temptations just as we do and so can intercede for us as one who knows what it is like to be tempted. He also knows suffering, from his passion and death on the cross. If you ever wonder if you deserve to be forgiven, remember that Jesus died for all sinners, deserving or not. The High Priest was the one to bring the Israelites prayers to God and God’s blessings to the people. Jesus also brings our prayers to his Father and shows us the Father’s love.

Our baptism gives us a share in that priesthood. You don’t have to be ordained to pray for your friends and family. You don’t have to be a bishop to bring God’s love to those around you. When you listen to a friend who is hurting, or forgive someone who hurts you, you are blessing them with God’s love. When you encourage them to have faith and trust in the Lord, you are bringing them to God. You are sharing in the priesthood of Christ.

Enlightened Sight.

The blind man will not be silenced today. Insistently he calls on Jesus by name. He asks for pity; he asks for sight. Jesus makes it happen. Instead of returning home to a renewed life, he throws off his cloak and jumps into action and follows. Even when sightless, he saw with eyes of faith. Because of this encounter with Jesus, his insight is richer.

  • What do I need to beg of Jesus? For myself? Forsomeone else?
  • How can I keep listening for Jesus already activein my life? In the lives of others?
  • What “cloak” that holds me back will I throw offto follow Jesus?

LIVING ROSARY

Saint Padre Pio said, “The Rosary is the weapon for these times,” especially during the month of October which is dedicated to the Holy Rosary. For this reason, the parishes of Sacred Heart and Immaculate Conception will be praying a Living Rosary, Sunday evening, October 24th at 6:30 pm at Sacred Heart Church. If we do not get enough people to form a living rosary, we will just pray the Rosary together. All are invited. Please come and pray with us.

WORLD MISSION SUNDAY COLLECTION

TODAY IS WORLD MISSION SUNDAY. We celebrate this day by remembering our baptismal call – to bring the Gospel to all!

Thank you for your generosity.

PRAYER FOR VOCATIONS

Gracious God
You have called us through Baptism to discipleship, believing in your Son, Jesus Christ, who has sent us to bring the Good News of salvation to the world.

We pray to you, asking that you grant us more priests and religious
who will help us build up your Church in the Diocese of Belleville and the world.

Stir up the grace of a religious vocation
in the hearts of many of our youth. Grant to them the willingness and generosity to give of themselves in service to our Lord Jesus and his people.

May a new generation
of priests, deacons, sisters and brothers be a sign of your presence among us.

We ask this in the name of Jesus the Lord. Amen.
