ADVENT 2014

The Advent wreath , with its four candles lit on succeeding Sundays, is an ideal home decoration during the weeks leading up to Christmas. A second suggestion: have a home Nativity scene as part of your decorations and add the figure of the baby Jesus in place on Christmas Eve.

Thought of the week by Father Ghislain Ndondji, November 9, 2014

“Your situation does not lead to death”

(Part I)

The Raising of Lazarus (Jn. 11, 1-57)

A serious and disturbing event has just occurred in the life of Martha and Mary. Their brother Lazarus was ill. It’s panic, it’s fear, they fear for the life of their brother. They fear that the worst will happen. So the sisters send messengers to Jesus, saying “the one you love is sick” (v. 3). They probably hoped that Jesus would come home soon and do something for his friend Lazarus. Did they hope for a cure?

The attitude of Martha and Mary is often ours too. Faced with a problem, a difficult situation, a serious illness, an event, we pray to the Lord to come and visit us. We ask others to pray for us. Jesus does not move immediately. He simply says to his disciples: ” This sickness will not end in death …” (v. 4).

If you believe in Jesus, your present situation, as hard as it is (suffering, doubt, hardship, grief, betrayal, hatred) does not lead to death. Through the difficult times that your relatives (illness, lack of faith, sorrow or all kinds of tests), all these miseries do not lead to death. So where does this all lead us? Following next week.

Have a good week.

Choir Practices for adults will be held every Monday night at 7 pm. Choir practice for children will be held every Tuesday at 6 pm.

On Sunday November 9th we will remember members of our parish community that are deceased. Symbols (a cross, angel wings, etc.) are available at the back of the church entrance and we ask a family member or friend to take one home. Write the name of the person who died and perhaps add a picture and/or any appropriate decorations or words that you feel are relevant. These symbols will be hung before Mass on a “Memorium Tree” which will be near the altar on Nov. 9th
Also, on November 9th, only for those who have died in 2013-2014 a family member or friend will be asked to light a “special candle” in memory of their loved ones.

REMEMBRANCE DAY CEREMONY – Otter Lake
