33rd Sunday in Ordinary Time
REFLECTION
A pastor was greeting people after Mass. The words of
today’s Gospel were fresh in his mind. He thought about how
his parish was never full. He longed to build up a larger
attendance at Mass, and was moved by the parable of the two
servants who had increased their master’s wealth. The priest
spotted a young couple he had never seen at Mass before.
“What parish are you from?”, he asked. The young man replied,
“Well, actually, I’m transferring from the municipal golf course.”
Readings
Prv 31:10-13, 19-20,
30-31
1Thes 5:1-6
Matthew 25:14-30
Jesus reminds us that we all need to transfer our focus
from whatever else entices us in order to build up the Kingdom
of God. If we bury our lives in idle pursuits, and our heads in
the sand, we will wind up like the third servant: trapped in the
darkness outside.
Next Sunday’s
Readings
Ez 34:11-12, 15-17

ADVENT RETREAT
On Saturday, Nov. 29, the Sisters of St. Mary of Oregon will feature an Advent retreat as part of
their 2014-2015 Bethany Center series. The retreat will be directed by Fr. John Kerns, who has
served in parishes and as vocation director in the Archdiocese of Portland since his ordination in
1985. Father Kerns is a talented musician and currently serves as the pastor of Our Lady of the
Lake Parish in Lake Oswego.
The Advent retreat will take place from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Sisters of St. Mary of Oregon
(SSMO) Motherhouse & Administration Building, 4440 SW 148th Avenue, Beaverton. The SSMO
campus is located on Murray Blvd. between TV Highway and Farmington Road.
The day will begin with a presentation at 9 a.m. followed by Mass at 10:30 a.m. Lunch will be
served at 11:30 a.m. followed by additional presentations and discussions at 1 p.m.
Free will offerings will be gratefully accepted. Because lunch will be offered, registration is
required. To register, call Sr. Noreen Orazio at 503-644-9181 or contact her via email at
[email protected]
The topic: “The Joyful Mysteries: Waiting with Mary to Receive Jesus.” Father Kerns said, “I will
focus on the kind of active waiting that Mary did as an expectant mother, and in solidarity with
the expectancy of her cousin, Elizabeth. It is a kind of waiting that involves activity, preparing,
“nesting,” supporting, encouraging and sharing the joy of hope. All that is seen in the Joyful
Mysteries.” He will also discuss the Annunciation and the Visitation.
Before the rush of the Christmas season envelops your world, take time for a renewing pause to
waitNovember
