THIRTY-SECOND SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME - November 9 & 10, 2019

REFLECTION ON TODAY'S READING:  In response to an attempt to ridicule his teaching about life after death, Jesus again proclaims a resurrection from the dead, that life in indeed stronger than death itself.  This is our eternal consolation and hope.  Then will our joy be truly fulfilled.

ST. JOSEPHS HEALING MINISTRY
    
In addition to the Anointing of the Sick, St. Joseph Church now offers a weekly Healing Ministry. This is a time set aside to bring restoration and wholeness to anyone in need of healing of body, mind, or spirit.    
IMAGO CHRISTI (in the Image of Christ) is an international healing ministry.  
Offered every Monday evening at 5:00 pm in the Church

You are invited to come and pray for healing with us. Group prayer and specific individual healing sessions are available to all.   It is the promise of Jesus that, through Him, we are "to have life and to have it more abundantly.” (John 10:10).  Mark 16:17-18 says "these signs will follow those who believe... they will lay hands on the sick and they will recover!"   This is a special time of grace for individuals, couples, and families to ask Jesus for healing for our needs and supplications.  Let the power of the Holy Spirit fill and restore us with His love!   Whether or not you are seeking personal healing, you are welcome to join our Healing Ministry Team. Please call Alda and Jim St. James for more information.  The flyer for the Healing Ministry is here.

 (Reflection Of The Gospel)

"All live to him"

Is your life earth-bound or heaven-bound? The Sadducees had one big problem - they could not conceive of heaven beyond what they could see with their naked eyes! Aren't we often like them? We don't recognize spiritual realities because we try to make heaven into an earthly image. The Sadducees came to Jesus with a test question to make the resurrection look ridiculous. The Sadducees, unlike the Pharisees, did not believe in immortality, nor in angels or evil spirits. Their religion was literally grounded in an earthly image of heaven. .

What is RCIA?  RCIA which stands for Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, is a process through which non-baptized men and women enter the Catholic Church. (It is also for those baptized in a different faith tradition who wish to become Catholic, or baptized Catholic and would like a refresher course, or baptized Catholic but never confirmed) It includes several stages marked by study, prayer and rites at Mass. Participants in the RCIA are known as catechumens. They undergo a process of conversion as they study the Gospel, profess faith in Jesus and the Catholic Church, and receive the sacraments of baptism, confirmation and Holy Eucharist.  If you know someone who might be interested in learning more about the Catholic faith please contact Chris AhPuck 463-1585.

In today’s second reading we hear Saint Paul urging the members of the community at Thessalonica to direct their hearts to God’s love through Christ. He wants them to be laser-focused on Christ, and nothing else. He desires that they be strengthened by the Lord and shielded from what is not Christ-like. Good stewards cultivate a “laser-sharp” focus on Christ; not on things that could give them false or superficial images or ideals. Let’s think about our own daily focus: Do we direct out hearts toward Christ or are there other “gods” that claim our attention? Our career? Material possessions? Sexuality? Favorite sports team? Political leanings? Does our daily life point to Christ so that those who are younger and less mature in their faith learn from our example?   

  MY PARISH APP   The app will allow us to communicate with you.   It will be a great resource for parishioners by providing daily Mass readings, Catholic news and prayers, convenient prayers and Confession reminders, our bulletin and more.  Its free and simple to install, go to messaging, text app to 88202 to download our parish app.  Select our Parish after opening.    

PARISH REGISTRATION  Please stop by the Parish Office if you are new to the Parish and would like to register or if you would like to receive a box of collection envelopes.  Also, if you have any changes to your address, phone contact, etc.. kindly call the office to update your information.   Mahalo!
