Our parish will present a six week message series that will conclude on the Feast of Christ the King. In light of the theme set by the bishops, "Living as Missionary Disciples," this new series will be called, "Be Restorative." One of the characteristics of a disciple is working for the restoration God envisions. This series will consist of 2 parts. The first will be "Through Humble Submission" and the second "Through Generosity and Action."
Through Humble Sumission...
On Sunday, October 22 we introduce the series by focusing on how a disciple is one who works for God in restoring what is broken or lost. On this weekend, Jesus tells us to repay to God what belongs to God. Yet everything belongs to God. It is up to us to restore to God what belongs to Him - the souls of the lost in this world.
On Sunday, October 29 we hear Jesus give us the great Commandment to Love. The only way to Love as God calls us to do is to humbly submit ourselves to His Holy Will! Restoration will then come when we see others as persons to Love, not problems to fix.
On Sunday, November 5 Jesus reminds us that the humble will be exalted. The humble are the ones who Love others and work toward helping them be restored to the highest dignity established by God. Like St. Francis who was called to rebuild the Church, we must all return to a humble way of life as part of the restoration process. This is a good weekend to reread the Beatitudes which began Jesus' public ministry in Matthew's Gospel.
Through Generosity and Action...
Themes for this part of the series will be posted soon...
