From the Pastor's Desk
Dear parishioners,

I hope and pray that you are staying healthy – both physically and spiritually. Please let me know if the parish can help you during these difficult times.

No doubt you are aware that our parish relies on the support of our parishioners to operate – parish salaries, programs and ongoing operating costs (heating, water, electricity, etc.) – are funded through the generosity of our parish community. It will be a challenge for our parish to maintain operations without the weekly offertory collection.

In response to many requests that I have received from parishioners, here are the ways that you can continue to support our parish at this time:

- Drop off or mail your regular weekly offertory contribution to the parish office.

- Contribute to our parish offertory by credit card. Please click here. You will then be able to select our parish in the drop-down menu. You can make a one time or recurring contribution to our parish offertory or other special funds.

- Contribute through pre-authorized giving. Click here for more information on pre-authorized giving. You can obtain a form from the parish office or you can click here to download an enrollment form which can be printed and completed. Return the completed form and a voided cheque to your parish office. Or e-mail the form and a scanned copy or photo of a voided cheque to development@archtoronto.org for processing. Contributions are withdrawn from your bank account on the 20th of each month.

- You can contribute to the offertory via online banking. To do this, the archdiocese will need to send you a unique account number. Please send an e-mail to campaign@archtoronto.org. In the body of the email provide:

   * Your name
   * Address
   * Parish name
   * Municipality

You will be emailed account information which you can use to set up the Archdiocese of Toronto as a payee in your on-line banking. Your gift will be forwarded to our parish. You can make a one time or recurring gift to our offertory.

If you have any questions please contact the Development Office at the Archdiocese of Toronto, 416-934-3400, ext. 540 or development@archtoronto.org.

Thank you for your many contributions to our parish community. I miss seeing all of you at the Mass and I pray daily that we will be able to gather together again soon.

Yours in Christ,
Fr. Xavier de Pinto

    Reflections

    for Sunday, November 6, 2016

    Resurrection! Christ is risen from the dead! If Christ has not risen, our life is in vain. You and I are invited this Sunday to deepen our belief that Christ is risen from the dead and will raise us up with Him.

    The first reading is from the Second Book of Maccabees and gives the account of a mother and her sons who are tortured to try to make them give up their beliefs. None of them do and the Romans are amazed just as they are relentless. So also today people are amazed when some Christians speak clearly that Jesus is God and will raise us up on the last day. For many people, Jesus is simply a good man and a religious teacher - but certainly not God and not risen from the dead.

    The second reading comes from the Second Letter to the Thessalonians. This letter tells us today: "the Lord is faithful; he will strengthen you and guard you from the evil one." This is part of the teaching of the Church and we must always listen attentively. No one, neither human nor devil, can separate us from Christ if we hold fast to Him. Christ is always with us and will give us His strength.

    The Gospel from Saint Luke today is a well-known story about a woman whose husband dies, and then a whole series of brothers marry her, one after one, and then the Sadducees ask Jesus who will have this woman in the life of the world to come. The Sadducees ask this question because they don't believe in the resurrection. Jesus is able to respond and show that God is a God of the living and not of the dead.

    This whole Sunday Mass is about resurrection today and we are challenged to accept that Jesus does teach that there is resurrection from the dead and that God is a God of living people. We live this faith by living as Jesus taught us and loving all others. We show our faith in the Resurrection of Jesus by respecting all life and by living in our own lives in a way that reflects the life of the world to come.

    We are in the last days of Ordinary Time and soon will transition to Advent. The readings today lead us towards Advent by calling us to reflect on the deepest meaning of life: relationship with God and living in God's presence.

     
    Readings of the day:
    First Reading: 2 Maccabees 7.1-2, 7, 9-14++
    Second Reading: 2 Thessalonians 2.16 – 3.5
    Gospel: Luke 20.27-38

    Homily from Abbot Philip, OSB, of the Benedictine Abbey of Christ in the Desert.
