Eric Dinga's Candidacy for the Orders
of Diaconate & Priesthood
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
Thirty-Third Sunday In Ordinary Time
The Lord sits as King for ever.
The Lord will bless his
people with peace.
Jesus tells his disciples this parable: A man going on a journey calls
his servants and entrusts his possessions to them. To one he gives five
talents; to another, two; to a third, one -- each according to his
ability. When the master returns, he discovers that the servant who was
given five talents made five more; the one given two talents made two
more. They are happy in receiving the master's praise for having used
their abilities in a creative way. However, the servant who received
one talent had hidden the talent out of fear, and now returns the
talent to the master. The master calls him a wicked, lazy servant, and
orders that he be thrown into the darkness outside.
