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
A common tactic in an argument is to make fun of the position of another. Then one does not have to take seriously the view being expressed. This is what the Sadduccees were doing with the trick question they put to Jesus. Have you ever found yourself doing this?
Have you experienced others doing it with you? What were the effects of such an attitude? Did it build up or damage a relationship? Jesus used the phrase ‘Children of the resurrection’ to describe his followers because we believe in something that cannot be proven. Life can sometimes present us with that kind of a challenge – an invitation to believe in things we cannot prove: another person, a cause, the value of a course of action, etc.. What has been your experience of believing and acting on this kind of faith? At the heart of our Christian faith is the belief that death is not the end. We believe that the relationship we have with God, and that starts in this life, survives death, and continues after death. We call this Resurrection. In this month of November, we recall those we have loved and have died. How has belief in the resurrection helped you in thinking about those you have loved and who are no longer with you?
