The Fuh-Cham family – Update NOVEMBER 1-2, 2014 WEEKLY REFLECTION: (All Souls Wisdom 3:1-9) In the me of their visitaon they shall shine. (Wisdom 3:7) Have you ever wondered why we bother to pray for those who have already died? Aer all, they’ve already passed from this life. The simple answer is because Scripture tells us to! Judas Maccabeus, an Old Testament hero, once sent money to Jerusalem to pay for a sin oﬀering for some soldiers he had buried that day. The bodies of these soldiers were found with pagan tokens under them, indicang they had engaged in idol worship. Judas believed that his oﬀering might help atone for their sin and bring them into heaven. (2 Maccabees 12:38-46) The Catechism teaches us that “all who die in God’s grace and friendship, but sll imperfectly puriﬁed, are indeed assured of their eternal salvaon; but aer death they undergo puriﬁcaon, so as to achieve the holiness necessary to enter the joy of heaven” (Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1030). Today, why not dedicate your prayer me to interceding for those who have gone before you – both your loved ones and those you found it hard to love? We have no way of knowing who goes straight to heaven, who goes to purgatory, or how long each person stays there. But we do know that the souls of the righteous are at peace, even if they aren’t yet perfected in holiness (Wisdom 3:3). Prayer is never useless! Even if you pray for someone who is already in the full light of the kingdom, God will take your intercession and pour out a diﬀerent blessing, maybe on the Church, on someone who doesn’t yet believe, or even on you! All he’s concerned about is that we connue to pray and work for the building up of his body, both here on earth and in heaven. “Thank you, Jesus, for having reconciled us to your Father. Lord, may all who have gone before us be fully puriﬁed and enter the full light of your kingdom.” LITURGY CORNER Questions To Ponder This Week The family’s support team would like to convey that Hilary and his family are safe - in hiding - in Cameroon. The younger two children (Canadian-born) are adapting to their new surroundings while the eldest is re-adapting (she was only 5 when she left). Please keep on praying for the Fuh-Cham’s as they find their way through this difficult time and hopefully back to our community as soon as possible. If you know an immigration lawyer who can help the team, please contact the parish office. Thank you! What unhealthy habits do I cling to that keep me from a deeper knowledge of God? Can I let go of what I know of life to find a much richer and enriching life? Have I shared with others that Jesus is a source of comfort, peace, liberation, and joy? Please take a look at the bullen boards in the corridor to the hall and near the chapel about of the church for further informaon on acvies in our community and around the diocese. Also check the grapevine which is a weekly e-newsleer with info about events going on around the diocese. To sign up simply send an e-mail to :[email protected] Thank you!
