The Cost of Authentic Discipleship

1 Kings 17:10-16 God rewards the trust of the poor

Psalm 146 Praise the Lord, my soul!
Heb 9:24-28 Christ offered himself, once and for all.
Mark 12:38-44 The parable of the poor widow
Some years ago, when bridge
tolls were about a dollar and
there were live toll-takers in the
booths, it was affordable and fun
to perform a random act of kindness. If you felt generous, you
could pay double the toll and explain: Im paying for the car behind me.
Sometimes the second car was able to catch up
with the first car and give a happy honk on the horn.
Everyone was filled with joy as they exchanged
smiles and friendly waves.
The scripture today contrasts "show-off" givers
with the humble widow who secretly gave all she
had. If we are truly giving to God, then only God
needs to see what we have done. We dont have to
lag behind so the second car will catch up with us.
Love is its own reward.
-- Deacon Dick Folger
Next Weeks Readings
Dan 12:1-3 The promise of Gods coming and of
eternal life
Psalm 16 You are my inheritance, O Lord.
Heb 10:11-14, 18 Jesus makes the perfect priestly
sacrifice: himself.
Mark 13:24-32 Signs of the Messiahs coming

Deo Gratias -- Thanks Be To God

We are grateful to God, and to our retired priests in
the Diocese of St. Catharines, who, from the time of
their ordination, have cared for us and our spiritual
needs. In thanksgiving to God for them and their
years of faithful service, your generous support of
the Deo Gratias collection will enable us to care for
those who have dedicated their lives to caring for
us. The revenue from this collection does not go into an endowment fund but goes directly to the Clergy Aid Society which provides an income for our retired priests. This special collection will be collected
the weekend of November 14-15.
