requests to help seven families who have lost their

families have abandoned them, and seven foster care
children. We will be collecting items during the
month of October to take to Hope Outreach. Please
place your donations in the Christian Formation
Center entryway near the Fr. Goshorn memorial
plaque. We are also seeking a gently used
refrigerator and stove. For questions or more

Living Stewardship
Jesus insists that all religious rules, the witness of
prophets and saints and every aspect of faith rests
entirely on wholehearted love of God, and loving
others as ourselves. A woman named Carla could not
sleep one night. Restless, she opened her Bible and
came upon these two greatest commandments. She
realized, guiltily, how many things displaced God in
her life. She hid behind baggy clothes and believed
herself not good enough. Carla’s parents had
emphasized sin and a harshly judgmental God. Carla
saw that the commandment was to love God, love
neighbor, love self. The common thread was love, not
sin, unworthiness, or judgment. Next morning Carla
read the words again. Jesus said “love your neighbor as
yourself.” Carla equated self-love with selfish pride.
She had to understand love in a new way. So began a
new path for Carla. She prayed gratefully every day for
God’s love and blessings. Step by step, she changed.
This Week’s Stewardship of Time and Talent
In gratitude for God’s gifts of time and talent to us, we
gratefully acknowledge and salute:
Those who helped prepare and baked for the funeral
luncheon for Tony Volk.
Sandy & John Vanin, Albie & Janna Scudiere,
Mary Lynn Cocco, Liz Conrad, Sr. Rachel, Mary Mihallik,
Debbie Marano, Margaret McBee.
Living Stewardship Now
Carla found an experienced spiritual director in her
area to help her. To find a priest or qualified lay
director, ask at the parish, a nearby religious retreat
center, a seminary, or the diocesan offices.

Message of the Week
Matthew 22:34-40
“The whole law and the prophets depend on these two
commandments.” The law of love. That’s what Jesus came
to establish. Think about the Ten Commandments: they can
be divided into two types of laws. First come the laws about
loving God: have no strange gods; don’t take the Lord’s
name in vain; honor the Sabbath. Then come the laws about
loving our neighbor: honor your parents; don’t kill; don’t
commit adultery; don’t steal; be honest; and don’t covet your
neighbor’s spouse or property. When we follow the law of
love that Jesus preaches today, all of this is taken care of.
Ultimately, all the dos and don’ts of the law are just specific
guidelines describing what love looks like. This is very
helpful for those times when love doesn’t come so easily to
us. But as Jesus instructs us today, the goal is to grow in the
kind of love that naturally leads us to want to do what’s best.
Questions of the Week
