November 14, 2010, 33rd Sunday in Ordinary Time
"By patient endurance you will save your lives," (2 Thessalonians 3)
1. Malachi 3:19-20
2. 2 Thessalonians 3:7-12
3. Gospel of Luke 21:5-19
REFLECTION: Patient endurance is a prerequisite for surviving today and struggling to do more than merely exist. Even if we eliminate the “big questions” and focus on the home, parents have to comfort—with patient endurance—such threats as drugs, illness, terrorism, and materialism.
PRAYER: Loving Lord, strengthen our efforts to live by your ways. Give us patience that we may endure present trials and attain a future of peace in union with you. Amen.
Monday: November is the end of the harvest. It is also the end of the Church’s year. Enjoy a special harvest meal tonight.
Tuesday: This year has seen so many natural disasters in this world. Pray today for all those caught in these disasters.
Wednesday: Pray the rosary with the family tonight for world peace.
Thursday: Pray especially today for newly elected public figures and for those in leadership.
Friday: Practice today patient endurance.
Saturday: As the cold days arrive, especially in the North, remember the poor and needy. Give food or clothing to your nearest food pantry.
PRAYER: Lead us from death to life, from falsehood to truth. Lead us from despair to hope, from fear to trust. Lead us from hate to love, from war to peace. Let peace fill our hearts, our world, our universe. Amen.
