Loving Others As God Has Loved Us
If he cries out to me, I will hear him; for I am compassionate. (Exodus 22:26)
Do you have children? If so, you’ve probably thought about what you would do if one of them fell
on hard times. Maybe you’ve found yourself in this position already! You’d do everything you
could to help, wouldn’t you? Even if the hardship is your child’s own doing, you would still want
to bend over backwards to help out.
That’s the message behind today’s first reading and Gospel reading. They both tell us that every
human being is a member of God’s family. We are all beloved of our Father, and we are all brothers and sisters to each other. It doesn’t matter whether we are well behaved or “black sheep” of his
family. He loves us deeply and longs to care for us, simply because we are his. This is why he has
a special love for the poor. It breaks his heart to see these children of his go without the basic necessities of food, clothing, and shelter.
Jesus tells us that the two greatest commandments are to love God with all
our hearts and to love one another as ourselves. These are very challenging
commands, precisely because they are so encompassing. He didn’t say,
“Love God when it’s convenient” or “Love only the people who agree with
you.” No, we are all one family: rich or poor, old or young, educated or
illiterate, Christian, Muslim, Jewish, or atheist. Whoever we are, whatever
we did or didn’t do, even whether or not we believe in God, everyone deserves to be treated with equal dignity. Everyone deserves to be cared for
and lifted up out of any poverty that holds them bound.
Jesus didn’t discriminate in his offer of healing and restoration. Like the
farmer who sowed his seeds on all types of soil, he wants us to do the
“Jesus, I praise you for your generosity. Give me the same concern for the poor and needy
around me. Lord, help me to open my heart and my hands to them!”

November 1st, the church celebrates the Feast of ALL Saints. The
church honours and praises the heroes of our faith and encourages us to
imitate their example. The Saints are not unreal, sentimental, pious figures. They are strong, happy and unique; vibrant examples of what we are
called to be. Saints are given no special equipment or extraordinary graces
not given to the rest of us. There is a process to declare people Saints of
the Church.
The saints are all of us. We are the people of God, the Body of Christ in
the world. God made us in his image and breathed his spirit into us so we
are holy. Therefore the Feast of All Saints is our feast, too. Saints allow
God to work in their lives, to mould them (like clay) into the people God
wants them to be—that is, our best selves, with the unique combination of
quirks, talents, faults and abilities God gave us.
We often ask others to pray for us. We can ask the saints, that is, anyone in heaven, to pray for us,
and with us. Our loved ones are especially close to us and want to help us.
Saint Anne, pray for us …..
Let Us Pray ……
Prayer remains a constant that unites and draws us closer together. Please advise us of
your prayer needs and let the power of our parish’s collective prayer support you.
A parish united in prayer creates a mighty power!
Let us pray as a diocesan family for the chaplains, pastors, lay ministers, and volunteers whose ministry is made possible by the Bishop’s Annual Appeal.
Let us pray for an end to terrorism of every kind.
Let us pray that Development and Peace supporters throughout Canada be moved to do our
part to eliminate global hunger by making good consumer choices and by supporting the Fall
Campaign petition to the House of Commons demanding respect for the right of small-scale
family farmers to preserve, use and exchange seeds.
Let us pray that God, who hears the cry of all who are injured and vulnerable, may open our
ears to that same cry and enable us to build a culture of life.
Let us pray that the sick be healed, the dying be comforted, and their caregivers be renewed in
spirit. We pray for Carmella Amico, Kira Chestolowski, Lorinda Abanes, Maurice Tremblay,
Ramona Dahl, Garry Woytas, Jim Ashcroft, Adam German, Patricia Jennison, Jackie Price,
Alyssa Noonan, Jackie Perreault, Ken Meyer, Sophie Zeljeznak, Amase Lafontaine. May
they seek healing and wholeness.
Let us pray for those who have died and for those who are mourning. We remember Rose
Bonin, grandmother of Blair & Lindsay Bonin, Alyssa & Dave Perrin. We remember George
Woznica, on the anniversary of his death, husband of Nellie, father of Gordon. We remember Lourdes Domingo Marucut, on the anniversary of his death. May they rest in eternal peace.
Loving Father, we ask that you hear our prayers and help us to continue to grow in faith. We
pray through your Son Jesus Christ. Amen.

This coming November 1st—All Saints Day falls on Saturday followed
by All Souls on Sunday, November 2nd. The challenge given by this situation is to make sure that we commemorate both death and resurrection,
both separation, grief, departure, “goodbye” as well as “hello,” for our
loved ones who have entered into the resurrection of Jesus, and as with
Jesus, they are with us.
Look at the prayers for the departed in any of the Eucharistic prayers:
always our faithful departed are connected with the saints. For the month of November, therefore,
we will have a display on the right side of the sanctuary where we invite you to place framed pictures and/or memorial cards in this display which will connect our loved ones with the saints who
have completed the paschal mystery of dying and rising with Christ.
A display table will be set up during the week of October 27th. You are invited to bring your
framed picture or memorial cards (which will be returned) anytime from October 27th throughout the month of November.
