Autumn is the season for harves ng and sharing the fruits of our labors. This weeks scriptures use images of the harvest, family life, pregnancy, and investment to describe the abundant harvest in the reign of God. We discover that sharing the gi s we have been given brings eternal rewards for everyone. In the Gospel parable, a master entrusts his possessions to three servants before going on a journey. Each is given some talents. What they do with those talents determines what the master will do with them when he returns. How about us? What are we doing with our talents? How will our Master treat us when he returns? Copyright J. S. Paluch Co., Inc.

Thirty-Third Sunday

in Ordinary Time


First Reading The woman who fears the L is to be praised (Proverbs 31:10-13, 19-20, 30-31). Psalm - Blessed are those who fear the Lord (Psalm 128). Second Reading Brothers and sisters, you are children of the light (1 Thessalonians 5:1-6). Gospel To all those who have, more will be given, and they will have an abundance (Ma hew 25:14-30).

Prayer of Pope Francis to Mary , Un er of Knots

Through your grace, your intercession, and your example, deliver us from all evil, Our Lady, and un e the knots that prevent

us from being united with God, so that we, free from sin and error, may find Him in all things, may

have our hearts placed in Him and may serve Him always in our

brothers and sisters.


Only one Black Friday offers eternal savings. Wednesday, November 22nd

Our year has been busy with weekly visits to the many

ladies incarcerated at the Craven County Deten on Center. To date, we have mailed to

"ladies on the inside" 56 Bibles (as we are not allowed to hand deliver them) .

We also are con nuing the Pen Pal program, started by one of our volunteers last fall. We urgently need Pen

Pals for many of these ladies who are wai ng, and who will be at the facility for a long period of me.

Ladies of the parish, many of you are may be looking for a way to be more ac ve in our parish--this is an

excellent way to do so--without leaving the comfort of your own home. You can be a posi ve influence in the

life of another woman! All le ers are sent with the sender's informa on being anonymous and all le ers received back come through

the church office. If you are would like more informa on, or feel that God

is calling you to do this, please call Susan T. at 252-617-9865.

We ask for everyone's prayers for the ladies on the "inside" so that when they are released they will go

forward in a "good" direc on; and for us, the ministry volunteers, so that we will be able to "reach" as many

as possible with the good news of the Gospel.

ministry fair? Volunteers are needed to make phone calls, send e-mails, design and format printed material, stuff envelopes, coordinate/serve refreshments, and even do some heavy li ing (move chairs, set up tables, etc.). If you are able to

Dear Friends at Saint Paul: We have had our first mee ng to organize neighborhood Masses in some of the many different areas of our parish. During Lent, Father Schuetz and I are commi ed to bringing the parish together in a more community-centered and small group way. These Lenten Masses will allow parishioners a special Mass during Lent. We hope people will get to know each other a li le and for us to know more people, experience prayer close to our homes and help build community among neighbors when we are back at Main Campus on Country Club Road. We need help to organize and carry out these Lenten neighborhood Masses. The commi ee has five members but we feel that at least three more would really help. We would appreciate the aid, especially, of a real estate agent or two who knows our county's neighborhoods and their rela onships, possible sites for Mass and the community leaders. The Masses will be weekdays in the evening, but we are planning on one Mass earlier for those who don't drive a er dark. They can take place at any loca on that will help to bring a neighborhood or several related neighborhoods together. (Please note that we are not aiming at individual housing developments). If you have me between now and March 30th (the end of Lent) to help us organize and carry out these Masses, please let me know... [email protected]

An outline for the virtue of PRUDENCE: I promised to share ideas from my sermon last weekend so that those from the 5:00pm and 8:00am Masses would have a reminder. Those from the 11:00am and 1:00pm Masses can learn from this outline as well, though you didn't hear that sermon. The First Reading from Mass last weekend had this line: Wisdom is the perfec on of prudence. Surely wisdom is desirable and a lo y goal...so, how can we perfect prudence? The virtue of Prudence is one of the four cardinal virtues, meaning virtues on which all the other virtues depend. The four cardinal virtues are prudence, jus ce, temperance and courage. (There are three spiritual or theological virtues: faith, hope and charity). Prudence is the virtue concerned with the Prac cal Reason or the thinking necessary to take prac cal decisions, i.e., to DO something. Prudence helps us know when to act. It is o en called the queen of the virtues because a pruden al judgment puts all other virtues into prac ce. We must resist the modern tendency to use the word prudence in a way that means back away from a risk; this is a misuse of the reference to the virtue of prudence. There are four skills or necessary ac ons each person must use to contribute to a prudent decision. The first is foresight or the ability to look ahead and predict possible outcomes to a decision to act. The second is circumspec on which calls us to look around for alterna ves and see if there is a be er way to achieve our desired outcome. Next is wariness or cau on so that we iden fy where the dangers are that we may avoid them. The fourth is shrewdness or alacrity by which we come to a decision about what we are to do efficiently and without hesita on. Summarizing, prudence requires that we look ahead, look around, look down, decide and then go! There are two opposites to prudence that we must avoid: every virtue is defined as the mean between extremes (in medio stat virtus). For prudence, too li le makes us rash. Rashness is the opposite of prudence. We act before we really understand the need to act. Too much prudence makes us unable to act and we suffer paralysis. This is the burden of the perfec onist who gets li le done because nothing is ever perfect. Paralysis is also the opposite of prudence. Let's pray for more wisdom, and the prudence it takes to get there!
