Growing in Faith

October 2021 Issue

"Lead us not into temptation..."

  • No one is exempt from temptation. Being enticed by the attractions of this world is part of our human condition, but successfully fighting it makes us stronger and holier. The main article on page one helps.
  • It’s only human to want to be loved. Unfortunately, even the best friend or lover will let us down once in a while. Fortunately, God will never let us down. The main article on page two explains.
  • Although no one enjoys dwelling on death, most of us will mourn and bury loved ones in our lifetimes. The Church has created Rites to help us face the difficulties and reality of death. Our popular Q&A feature explains the beauty and importance of a Catholic funeral.

Pastoral Plan Activities and Prayer

October 10

Please read the Gospel for this Sunday Mark 10:17-30.

In the Gospel Jesus calls the man to sell what he has and give all to the poor and then came and follow him. The man goes away sad. He is not able to give up all his wealth. Jesus sees that the wealth possesses the man and dominates his life. He seek to free him from slavery to his possessions. Our desire for money and possessions can dominate our lives.

Dialogue: How do you keep the desire for material possessions from dominating your life and your family? Are there ways you and your family share with others your time, talent, and treasure as a way responding to the Lord’s call in today’s Gospel? What are your favorites charities? How you you invite your children to also share with them?

Activity: Bring a food item to church to share with others this Thanksgiving time. Buy a box of food bars and hand them out one y one to those begging at street corners. Talk with the family about how you might support you favorite charity.
