LITURGY NOTES
DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME ENDS Let’s not forget Daylight Saving Time ends and we need to turn our clocks back 1 hour next Sunday, November 7th at 2:00 am.
The Word in Our Lives Readings for November 7
32nd Sunday in Ordinary Time
First Reading: 1 Kings 17:10-16
In those days, Elijah the prophet went to Zarephath As he arrived at the entrance of the city, a widow was gathering sticks there; he called out to her, "Please bring me a small cupful of water to drink." She left to get it, and he called out after her, "Please bring along a bit of bread." She answered, "As the LORD, your God, lives, I have nothing baked; there is only a handful of flour in my jar and a little oil in my jug. Just now I was collecting a couple of sticks, to go in and prepare something for myself and my son; when we have eaten it, we shall die." Elijah said to her, "Do not be afraid. Go and do as you propose. But first make me a little cake and bring it to me. Then you can prepare something for yourself and your son. For the LORD, the God of Israel, says, 'The jar of flour shall not go empty, nor the jug of oil run dry, until the day when the LORD sends rain upon the earth.'" She left and did as Elijah had said. She was able to eat for a year, and he and her son as well; the jar of flour did not go empty, nor the jug of oil run dry, as the LORD had foretold through Elijah.
Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 146:7, 8-9, 9-10
Second Reading: Hebrews 9:24-28 Christ did not enter into a sanctuary made by hands, a copy of the true one, but heaven itself, that he might now appear before God on our behalf. Not that he might offer himself repeatedly, as the high priest enters each year into the sanctuary with blood that is not his own; if that were so, he would have had to suffer repeatedly from the foundation of the world. But now once for all he has appeared at the end of the ages to take away sin by his sacrifice. Just as it is appointed that human beings die once, and after this the judgment, so also Christ, offered once to take away the sins of many, will appear a second time, not to take away sin but to bring salvation to those who eagerly await him.
Gospel: Mark 12:38-44 In the course of his teaching Jesus said to the crowds, "Beware of the scribes, who like to go around in long robes and accept greetings in the marketplaces, seats of honor in synagogues, and places of honor at banquets. They devour the houses of widows and, as a pretext recite lengthy prayers. They will receive a very severe condemnation." He sat down opposite the treasury and observed how the crowd put money into the treasury. Many rich people put in large sums. A poor widow also came and put in two small coins worth a few cents. Calling his disciples to himself, he said to them, "Amen, I say to you, this poor widow put in more than all the other contributors to the treasury. For they have all contributed from their surplus wealth, but she, from her poverty, has contributed all she had, her whole livelihood."
La Palabra en Nuestra Vidas 7 de noviembre 2021
XXXII Domingo Ordinario
Primera Lectura: 1 Rey 17, 10-16
En aquel tiempo, el profeta Elías se puso en camino hacia Sarepta. Al llegar a la puerta de la ciudad, encontró allí a una viuda que recogía leña. La llamó y le dijo: “Tráeme, por favor, un poco de agua para beber”. Cuando ella se alejaba, el profeta le gritó: “Por favor, tráeme también un poco de pan”. Ella le respondió: “Te juro por el Señor, tu Dios, que no me queda ni un pedazo de pan; tan sólo me queda un puñado de harina en la tinaja y un poco de aceite en la vasija. Ya ves que estaba recogiendo unos cuantos leños. Voy a preparar un pan para mí y para mi hijo. Nos lo comeremos y luego moriremos”. Elías le dijo: “No temas. Anda y prepáralo como has dicho; pero primero haz un panecillo para mí y tráemelo. Después lo harás para ti y para tu hijo, porque así dice el Señor de Israel: ‘La tinaja de harina no se vaciará, la vasija de aceite no se agotará, hasta el día en que el Señor envíe la lluvia sobre la tierra’ ”. Entonces ella se fue, hizo lo que el profeta le había dicho y comieron él, ella y el niño. Y tal como había dicho el Señor por medio de Elías, a partir de ese momento, ni la tinaja de harina se vació, ni la vasija de aceite se agotó.
Salmo Responsorial: Salmo 145, 7. 8-9a. 9bc-10
Segunda Lectura: Hebreos 9, 24-28
Hermanos: Cristo no entró en el santuario de la antigua alianza, construido por mano de hombres y que sólo era figura del verdadero, sino en el cielo mismo, para estar ahora en la presencia de Dios, intercediendo por nosotros. En la antigua alianza, el sumo sacerdote entraba cada año en el santuario para ofrecer una sangre que no era la suya; pero Cristo no tuvo que ofrecerse una y otra vez a sí mismo en sacrificio, porque en tal caso habría tenido que padecer muchas veces desde la creación del mundo. De hecho, él se manifestó una sola vez, en el momento culminante de la historia, para destruir el pecado con el sacrificio de sí mismo. Y así como está determinado que los hombres mueran una sola vez y que después de la muerte venga el juicio, así también Cristo se ofreció una sola vez para quitar los pecados de todos. Al final se manifestará por segunda vez, pero ya no para quitar el pecado, sino para salvación de aquellos que lo aguardan y en él tienen puesta su esperanza.
Evangelio: Marcos 12, 38-44 En aquel tiempo, enseñaba Jesús a la multitud y le decía: “¡Cuidado con los escribas! Les encanta pasearse con amplios ropajes y recibir reverencias en las calles; buscan los asientos de honor en las sinagogas y los primeros puestos en los banquetes; se echan sobre los bienes de las viudas haciendo ostentación de largos rezos. Éstos recibirán un castigo muy riguroso”. En una ocasión Jesús estaba sentado frente a las alcancías del templo, mirando cómo la gente echaba allí sus monedas. Muchos ricos daban en abundancia. En esto, se acercó una viuda pobre y echó dos moneditas de muy poco valor. Llamando entonces a sus discípulos, Jesús les dijo: “Yo les aseguro que esa pobre viuda ha echado en la alcancía más que todos. Porque los demás han echado de lo que les sobraba; pero ésta, en su pobreza ha echado todo lo que tenía para vivir”.
PAT’S PIZZA Pat’s Pizza Family Restaurant, located at 311 N. Broad Street in Middletown, will donate a portion of all receipts we return to them. Please place your saved receipts in the collection basket or drop them off at the parish office. We are blessed that our local businesses continue to support our parish. Please thank them for their generosity when you visit Pat’s.
STEWARDSHIP
Some highlights from the quarterly statement worth noting: Ordinary income is up this year versus 2020 as we are no longer limited in capacity through the reservation system and the Spanish Mass is now taking place again. Building expenses are down this year versus last year as last year we incurred some significant HVAC repair costs that have been running smoothly since. We also were fortunate in holding property insurance rates steady with help from the Diocese in negotiating favorable rates for us. Also, it is worth noting that the expenses of religious education are expected to increase some this year with learning returning to an “in person” format.

CHRISTIAN FORMATION
MARRIAGE MOMENTS Halloween is coming up when folks wear costumes and pretend to be scary, beautiful, funny, or… Fantasize together. In your dream world, who/what would you like to be? Laugh together.
PARENTING POINTERS The Old Testament and the New Testament tell us to love God with all our heart, soul, and strength. Easy to say, but what does this look like – to pray more? To help someone out? To put up with hardships? Other?
DID YOU KNOW... that praying for the dead is rooted in the very nature of heaven? How is this? Scripture tells us “nothing unclean” can enter heaven. (Rev 21: 27) A person who dies in a state of grace but has even a trace of imperfection would be unable to enjoy the perfection of God in heaven. That imperfection is an obstacle on the way. Thus it is a great consolation and an act of great kindness by the Church to provide this process of purification for these Holy Souls. Saint John Henry Newman said, “…in one sense, all Christians die with their work unfinished.” Purgatory is where the finishing touches are added. But there is some concern. The Holy Souls cannot help themselves in this purification process. Pain is experienced from knowing the joy of salvation that awaits them is not yet attained. We can help them with our prayers and acts of penance. All Souls Day, and all November the Church encourages us to pray for the Holy Souls. Concern for those in Purgatory should move us to consider the prospect for ourselves. Jesus said, “You, therefore, must be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.”

PUNTEROS DE CRIANZA El Antiguo y el Nuevo Testamento nos dicen que amemos a Dios con todo nuestro corazón, alma y fuerzas. Es fácil de decir, pero ¿cómo se ve esto? ¿Orar más? ¿Para ayudar a alguien? ¿Para aguantar las dificultades? ¿Otro?
MOMENTOS DE MATRIMONIO Se acerca Halloween cuando la gente se disfraza y finge ser aterradora, hermosa, divertida o… Fantasean juntos. En el mundo de tus sueños, ¿quién / qué te gustaría ser? Reír juntos.

ATTENTION: ALL 8TH GRADE STUDENTS AND FAMILIES
A Catholic high school education in the Diocese of Wilmington is a gift of faith and academic excellence for each student enrolled. In addition to an academic program of highest quality, teaching and learning are infused with the Catholic faith. In the classroom, through extracurricular activities, on the playing field, and through service to others, Catholic high schools develop young men and women who are faith filled, competent, and confident as they prepare for college and careers. The Diocese of Wilmington will administer the High School Placement Test (HSPT ) at our diocesan and parish high schools (Padua Academy, Saint Elizabeth High School, Saint Mark’s High School, Saints Peter & Paul High School) the second weekend in November. The HSPT is an important step in the process of successful admission and placement in a Catholic diocesan or parish high school. This test is used for admission, scholarship, and placement decisions. Visit www.cdow.org for information and to register.

LOVE GOD As we near the end of the liturgical year we listen to Gospel readings from the final stage of Jesus’ ministry—his teaching in Jerusalem. This Sunday Jesus is in conversation with one of the scribes of the temple. In a rare occurrence Jesus and the scribe agree on the two greatest commandments— to love God with all your being and to love your neighbor as yourself. In today’s selection from Deuteronomy Moses gives this teaching to the Israelites as the core of their life of faith and prayer, and Psalm 18 echoes this prayer with the words, “I love you, O LORD, my strength” (Psalm 18:2). Jews and Christians agree that our greatest responsibility is to love the one and only God, and that we cannot claim to love God without loving our neighbor as ourselves.
