In church our predominant behavior should be to adore Jesus. So, respectful silence in church enables us to focus on him. He is already physically present in the tabernacle. The evidence is the lit sanctuary lamp. Now, if we want to talk to parishioners, we are disposed to whisper one line: "I'll talk to you in the vestibule." This week’s Sanctuary Candle is for Lia Patterson. 40 Days for Life begins September 24. To sign up for hours go to 40daysforlife.com/montgomery. Please fast and pray to end abortion. Contact Mary Ann Gould at 334 868-7475 or Jeanne Paxson at 334 221-1140. Sunday, October 26, 2014 November 9th - Sunday Social Muffin Mania! October is dedicated to Mary, along with the month of May. Typically we pray the rosary each day. Sunday and Wednesday are for the 5 Glorious Mysteries. Monday & Saturday are for the 5 Joyful Mysteries. Tuesday & Friday uses the 5 Sorrowful Mysteries. Thursday utilizes the 5 Luminous Mysteries. To pray the Mysteries on these respective days is to use one or more of the 5 senses & imagine being present for the specific Mystery. This enables the Mysteries to come alive. The Mysteries can then become photographs of Mary's remembrances of her Son Jesus to us. Mass Attendance: annually each parish counts at each Mass during the month of October, every man, woman, and child. These counts are registered weekly and then at month's end are sent to the Chancery in Mobile. This enables the Archbishop to see where his priests can be best assigned. The counts also indicate demographics. Aberrations occur when parishioners fail to attend Mass at the parish in which they are registered. Aberrations also occur when Catholics fail to register in a parish and become "roaming Catholics". Accurate numbers are essential, especially as we rely evermore on priests from other countries. Holy Water Urn contains water blessed by a priest. Usage of holy water invites God's blessing on the person using it. Blessed water is a symbol of spiritual cleansing. Its use is advised in moments of physical danger & against temptations from spiritual enemies. Holy water is recommended for use in the home. The Catholic Church uses holy water in all blessings. It's a common practice to dip one's fingers in holy water & reverently make the Sign of the Cross as one enters a Catholic Church. Those who weekly clean the sanctuary let the priest know when the holy water is running low in the urn. All Saints Day is November 1. It is a holy day of obligation, except when it falls on a Saturday or Monday. Since this year it falls on a Saturday, the holy day obligation to attend mass is dropped. So, there will be no vigil mass on Friday (October 31) & on the morning of November 1 (Saturday). This solemn feast originated in the West in 609, when Pope Boniface IV dedicated the Pantheon to the Blessed Virgin Mary. At first celebrated in Rome on May 13, Pope Gregory III (731-41) changed the date to November 1, when he dedicated a chapel in honor of All Saints in the Vatican Basilica. Pope Gregory IV later extended the feast to the whole Church. The purpose of the feast is to honor all the saints, even those unrecorded, in a common feast. Book of Revelation is taught every Monday, excluding federal holidays, in the parish hall at 9 AM with a repeat class at 6:30 PM. Classes will end in early December. Compendium of the Catechism of the Catholic Church is taught every Tuesday in the parish hall at 6:30 PM. This class enables us to know & explain our Catholic Faith. Classes end in late March. Time, Talent, Treasure: annually we pledge all 3 to Our Lady Queen of Mercy Parish. At this time, please, search your soul as you look at Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament or on a crucifix. Then, in the near future when the forms are passed out, be generous. Let us continue to build up the Body of Christ in our parish. We consist of 100 households with 160 people. Each weekend another 60 people attend Mass here. Some of them give to OLQM of their treasure. Ordinary Time: is either 33 or 34 weeks each calendar year. We ponder the three years of public ministry of our Lord Jesus Christ in the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, & Luke. The Catholic Church is on a three year cycle on Sundays. In the first year, we examine our Lord's three years of public ministry in the Gospel of Matthew. In the second year, we do the same in the Gospel of Mark. And, in the third year, we examine the Gospel of Luke. In this way, we look at our Lord's three years of public ministry from three different "camera angles", as we avail our self of these three "photographers". Sign of Peace, as we recollect courtesy of Pope Francis I, is the opportunity to quietly share the peace of Christ with someone next to us at Mass. This is a brief opportunity, as it has morphed from exchanging it with more than one person around us. Also, again, it is not meant to be boisterous. All Souls Day is Sunday, November 2. This feast commemorates (remembers) the faithful departed in purgatory. It was begun by Abbott Odo of Cluny in his monasteries in 998. The feast was gradually adopted by the whole Church. Pope Benedict XV granted all priests the privilege of offering 3 masses on this day: 1 for all the poor souls, another for the Pope's intentions, & a 3rd for the intentions of the priest. This began during World War I (1914-1918). If you would like your loved ones remembered at each of the masses in November, please, write their names on the cards to be found in the vestibule. Then, return these cards in the collection, church office, or to the priest or deacon.
