Notices for week of November 26, 2017

whatsoever you doGood day dear friends,

This Sunday we will celebrate the feast of Christ the King, bringing an end to the Church’s liturgical year, and opening us to begin our Advent preparations for the watching and waiting for the coming of Love within us. This Sunday we will hear Jesus tell us in the Gospel that “whatsoever you do to the least of my brothers or sisters, that you do unto me.” The Kingdom of God, the Reign of Christ is, with an awakened heart, to see, to love and to serve Christ in all people. What a world it would be if we could spiritually wake up and see Christ in the face of every human being – especially those most in need.

Love

Father Gerald+
