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
