SECOND COLLECTION: ALTAR SOCIETY
From the Rector’s Desk....
My Dear Parishioners:
Sometimes we have a tendency to make the simple things complicated. Our readings this 30th Sunday in
Ordinary Time remind us of this very thing. The “law” is summarized in love. Whoever fulfills the
commandment of love has already fulfilled the law. All the rest is just comment and explanation. This is
Stewardship Weekend throughout our diocese and it gives each of us a chance to really pray about the sacrifices
we are making in our lives for God. How are we sharing our time, talents, and resources with the Church?
It’s not complicated – we just need to put our priorities in place–– and give to God what belongs to God. I
challenge everyone – adults and children–– to look at some–very concrete ways that we can show our love
towards each other and towards God by make some sacrifices ourselves.
Peace,
Fr. Hank Lanik, Rector

PICNIC
THANK YOU!
Thank you to all those who made the Fall Parish Picnic a success! The Knights of Columbus prepared
hotdogs; the Altar Society Busy Bakers provided cupcakes for the children to decorate; the St Vincent de
Paul Society sweetened the evening with cookies. The Filipino, Hispanic, Lebanese and Nigerian
communities made wonderful things for us to eat.
Thank you to Gorman for allowing the use of their snow cone machine, and the Sattler family for arranging
it, and working with it. Dan and Rhapsody Onderko for arranging and organizing our face painters, CMOMS
provided a balloon clown, and the parish for providing Korn Pop, the Clown. The Tyler Fire Department
arrived with E-1, a huge fire truck that fascinated children and adults alike.
A special thanks to the Pastoral Council who provided the behind the scenes labor and organization that
made the event happen. What a wonderful community we have at the Cathedral Parish!
Reflection on Sunday Readings
LOVE SHOWN IN ACTION
Do you receive the word of God with joy as the Thessalonians did? Their faith showed in their actions. They
became models for other believers.
The first reading tells us to put our faith into action. This passage is part of a long list of ordinances God
commanded the Israelites to observe. God will judge us by how we treat our neighbors. God will hear the cries of any
whom we neglect or mistreat and will come to their defense.
In today’s Gospel the Pharisees put the question of God’s law to Jesus. “Which commandment of the law is
the greatest?” (Matthew 22:36) How could he possibly choose from all the detailed commandments the Jews observed?
He was sure to offend somebody by his answer! Of course, Jesus went right to the heart of the matter. Love is the
greatest commandment—love of God and love of neighbor. Everything else is based on this.
