month of November is dedicated to the Souls in Purgatory, whose feast
is celebrated on November 2. With the exception of the last Sunday,
November falls during the liturgical season known as Ordinary Time and
is represented by the liturgical color green. The last Sunday, which
marks the beginning of the Advent season, the liturgical color changes
to purple, representing a time of penance.
November, as in all of Ordinary Time (Time After Pentecost), the
Liturgy signifies and expresses the regenerated life from the coming of
the Holy Spirit, which is to be spent on the model of Christ's Life and
under the direction of His Spirit. As we come to the end of the Church
year we are asked to consider the end times, our own as well as the
world's. The culmination of the liturgical year is the Feast of Christ
the King. "This feast asserts the supreme authority of Christ over
human beings and their institutions.... Beyond it we see Advent dawning
with its perspecitive of the Lord's coming in glory."— The Liturgy and
Time, A.G. Mortimort
This Thanksgiving let those of us who have much and those
who have little gather at the welcoming table of the Lord. At
this blessed feast, may rich and poor alike remember that we are called
to serve one another and to
walk together in God's gracious world. With thankful hearts we praise our God who like a loving parent denies us no good thing.
The Parish Offices will be closed on
Thursday, November 27th & Friday, November 28th.
A very Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!
