What you need to know from this weekend’s bulletin:


Remembrance Weekend…

November 12, 2023

This is the month of remembrance. We recall the memory of our loved ones who have gone before us in faith. We remember their death that separates the rest of us who are still in this pilgrimage on earth.  
Death brings emptiness and even devastation in our life and relationships. Death, especially as a result of abuse and violence, becomes abominable not only for us, but for our God, who is the Lord of all life and death. But out of the devastation, emptiness, and abomination, something positive emerges in us. We re-discover love, even in the midst of hatred and violence. We renew friendship and personal closeness that would not have been so intimate and loving. We also realize more forcefully and more powerfully that we are not supposed to be pitted against each other and that we are indeed partners in dealing with our own mortality and human weaknesses.  
In this offering of the Holy Eucharist, which celebrates the violent and abominable crucifixion and death of our Lord Jesus Christ, we behold power of redemption that comes about through His resurrection. In Jesus Christ, we find the meaning of our own suffering and pain. In Him, we find the context and meaning of our own death. Death becomes the defining moment of our entire life, ushering us to the life that lasts forever. Death is a masterpiece, as it were, that unites all together the pieces of memories and experiences of a lifetime. 
Our greatest legacy and pledge we can make at this point of our lives is to resolve to live our respective lives in the most loving and caring way, in imitation of the Lord Jesus Christ whose life and ministry was marked with love, compassion, self-sacrifice, and self-giving.

Bullying Awareness week is November 13-17. This year’s theme is “Make a Noise About Bullying”. Bullying is a conscious, willful, and deliberate act of power through aggression that is repeated, unequal power, which creates fear in the victim and an inability to act. Bullying includes: physical aggression (hitting, kicking, taking or damaging belongings), verbal aggression (insults, name-calling, and repeated teasing), social exclusion, intimidation through spreading nasty rumors or threatening, sexual aggression, and cyber-bullying.
