An Explanation of the Mass
Here at St. Paul’s we often begin the Mass when
the presiding priest invites us to greet someone in
the congregation we don’t know. This reminds us
that living as members of a community--and also
welcoming a stranger-- are important parts of being
a Christian. We all stand as the Presider, readers
and altar servers process from the back of the
church to the altar. By standing and singing an entrance hymn we show that we are ready to pray!
The Presider welcomes us with a formal welcome
such as “The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, and
the love of God, and the communion of the Holy
Spirit be with you all.” This is a very ancient greeting, found in many places in the New Testament,
reminding us that we have received, are receiving
and hope to receive, the gift of our Father’s grace
and love.
Prayer for the Canonization of
Father Isaac T. Hecker, CSP
Heavenly Father, you called your servant Isaac Thomas
Hecker to preach the Gospel to the people of North
America and through his teaching, to know the peace
and the power of your indwelling Spirit. He walked in
the footsteps of Saint Paul the Apostle, and like Paul
spoke your Word with a zeal for souls and a burning
love for all who came to him in need. Look upon us this
day, with compassion and hope. Hear our prayer. We
ask that through the intercession of Father Hecker your
servant, you might grant us (state the request). We ask
this in the name of Jesus Christ, Your Son, Our Lord,
who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit. One
God, forever and ever. Amen

“Whatever you did for one of these least of these, you did for
me.” Mt 6:40 b
Times are difficult for so many. The finance council and the parish
staff have discussed how best the parish can respond to the increased need that we are experiencing through phone inquiries,
walk-ins and the increased requests from various charitable agencies. Since September 2009, the parish has been giving 5% of the
weekly collection to a charity.

Lay Ecclesial Ministry – What’s That?
Beginning the weekend of September 20th-21st, the term
“Lay Ecclesial Ministry” has been added permanently to
the Prayer of the Faithful proclaimed at every Sunday
Mass. The intention that asks us to pray for vocations now
reads “…for vocations to the priesthood, the diaconate,
religious life, and lay ecclesial ministry.”
All of us have some sense of what “priesthood,”
“religious life” and “diaconate” mean. But “lay ecclesial
ministry” is a mouthful. Rather than trying to find something easier to speak aloud, we have decided to keep this
term as it is used in bishops’ documents (most notably, CoWorkers in the Vineyard) and, instead, help everyone to
understand its meaning and importance. “Lay ecclesial
ministry” refers to all non-ordained men and women who
work in and for various Church ministries. It is a vocation,
just as priesthood, diaconate and religious life are vocations
– and they all draw from the same source – Baptism.
Those lay people who make a life’s work out of service
to the Church – at the parish or diocesan level – as catechetical leaders, liturgical ministers, pastoral associates, parish
life directors, youth ministers and others are responding to
the call of their Baptism. Each has an authentic vocation.
We will continue to pray for an increase in their number.
An Evening with Sister Carol Perry,
Author of Waiting for Our Souls to CatchUp
Waiting For Souls To Catch Up, invites readers to begin a
journey of the heart and mind in which a small effort of
faith, guided by reason, can yield huge spiritual dividends.
This event is free. Light refreshments will be served.

Readings for October 29, 2013
Thirtieth Sunday in Ordinary Time
St. Paul the Apostle School
Reading 1EX 22:20-26
Thus says the LORD: "You shall not molest or oppress an
alien, for you were once aliens yourselves in the land of
Egypt. You shall not wrong any widow or orphan. If ever
you wrong them and they cry out to me, I will surely hear
their cry. My wrath will flare up, and I will kill you with the
sword; then your own wives will be widows, and your children orphans. "If you lend money to one of your poor neighbors among my people, you shall not act like an extortioner
toward him by demanding interest from him. If you take
your neighbor's cloak as a pledge, you shall return it to him
before sunset; for this cloak of his is the only covering he has
for his body. What else has he to sleep in? If he cries out to
me, I will hear him; for I am compassionate."
Thank you for your interest in St. Paul the Apostle School.
We would like to welcome you on a tour of the campus.

Reading 21 THES 1:5C-10
Brothers and sisters: You know what sort of people we were
among you for your sake. And you became imitators of us
and of the Lord, receiving the word in great affliction, with
joy from the Holy Spirit, so that you became a model for all
the believers in Macedonia and in Achaia. For from you the
word of the Lord has sounded forth not only in Macedonia
and in Achaia, but in every place your faith in God has gone
forth, so that we have no need to say anything. For they
themselves openly declare about us what sort of reception we
had among you, and how you turned to God from idols to
serve the living and true God and to await his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, Jesus, who delivers us
from the coming wrath.

Gospel MT 22:34-40
When the Pharisees heard that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees, they gathered together, and one of them, a scholar of the
law tested him by asking, "Teacher, which commandment in
the law is the greatest?" He said to him, "You shall love the
Lord, your God, with all your heart, with all your soul,
and with all your mind. This is the greatest and the first commandment. The second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. The whole law and the prophets depend on
these two commandments."
