From the desk of
Father Flores Due to the deadline scheduling, this article has been written before Election Day and very likely before the definitive results of the election. One thing is clear, however, and that is that we will have elected a new President. If President Trump has won, he will have gained the 46th Presidency; and if Joe Biden has won, he will be preparing to start his new life as President of the United States. After all the campaigning and the political commen- taries and programming, the important thing is that we now have a president in a new term or a man begin- ning his presidency. Certainly, there will be rejoicing and happiness by some and disappointment by others. Our role as Christians is to pray for the president, who- ever it may be. God does not choose our president, or any other political position for that matter, but He has established the right of human authority, for which we are called to accept and respect. In ancient times this was exercised by noblemen and kings. Today it is exer- cised by houses of representation, congresses, parlia- ments and in our case the president. St. Paul wrote that we should pray for our political leaders, and this makes a lot of sense. We do not pray for them because we like them or want good things for them personally. No, we pray for them so that they can lead well. Leading well in the Christian context means respecting the dignity of all human persons, respecting life and the basic rights of human beings to coexist, to make a living and pursue meaningful lives. The Church calls those in authority to see themselves as servants of the people. This doesn’t mean that they are to serve us like a waiter or a house servant, but they are to serve us in protecting and furthering these rights. With great power comes not only great responsibility but also great temptation to serve only oneself, to reward those who supported the campaign and to favor those who agree with the leader’s values and points of view. Our prayers for the president and indeed for all political leaders is that they see themselves as serv- ants of the people who use their power and influence to serve the full spectrum of human dignity from concep- tion to natural death, giving preferential treatment to the
poor and marginalized, protecting those whose liberties are in danger and aiding those who seek a better and safer life in our great nation. This is a lot to ask of a leader, but we must ask it of them and pray that they lead in Godly ways. Today say a prayer for our President or President Elect; he is going to need it.
In Jesus and Mary, Father Flores

NOVEMBER: MONTH OF THE HOLY SOULS
We rightfully pray for the souls of the dead; those
prayers are a spiritual work of mercy. For precautionary measures due to COVID, we ask that you add names of loved ones to the Book of the Dead by emailing them to [email protected], calling the parish office, or simply placing a note with names in the marked basket at the entrances of the Church. Names submitted will be added each Friday afternoon by office staff and placed near the altar in time for weekend Masses.
The safety protocols in place are one way we can “love our neighbor.” Please review the protocols which have been updated due to the Stage 3
order by the Governor and the mask mandate in place. You may pick up a copy at the doors of the church, or view them at www.stpiuscda.org. We also ask you to consider staying after Mass to help disinfect pews. Many hands make light work! Thank you.
