We continue to keep the People of Ukraine in our Prayers during this time of needless war.             Let your Peace reign, O Lord!

During the month of November, we pray for our brothers and sisters who have died. We pray that they have passed from death to life in the company of the Lord Jesus who died and rose to new life. We dedicate the month of November to their memory and commend them to the Love and Mercy of God, Our Father. We also pray for those who mourn the death of a loved one. In our darkest moments, the Risen Christ is among us to bring new light and hope.
Lord of all gentleness, surround us with your care and comfort us in our sorrow. It is our certain faith that your Son Jesus Christ, who died on the cross was raised from the dead. Grant through this mystery, that all who have gone to their rest in Christ may share in the joy of His Resurrection. We ask this through Christ Our Lord. Amen

The path to Conversion is sometimes an unexpected one!
Zacchaeus showed himself open to the call of Jesus, to the surprise of his contemporaries who thought there was no good in tax collectors. Sometimes the people who give us lessons in goodness may be people we previously disregarded. Recall when this happened for you. It was the eagerness of Zacchaeus to see what kind of a man Jesus was, that opened him up to conversion. When you consider moments of change in your life what were the interests or desires that prepared you for change? The decision of Jesus to eat in the house of Zacchaeus broke the social norms of his day and scandalized those who saw him. When have you found table fellowship a useful way of breaking down artificial boundaries between people? When has a kind word had this effect? Zacchaeus had become rich off the backs of the people, and they thoroughly disliked him. Yet he was the one singled out by Jesus and he responded to Jesus’ call. Perhaps you have also seen people who hurt you and caused you pain change their ways. How have you reacted to such a change? What has helped you to see the grace of God at work, and give thanks?
