The adjacent stained glass window strikingly depicts the Master’s expectation of His returning servants. Based upon their individual abilities, each servant was given different amounts of talent to advance the Master’s purposes. The first two return, showing their Master the fruits of their efforts, whereas the last one is shown empty-handed. The Master chastises the last servant, for had he at least tried and lost, the Master would have understood it and shown thanksgiving and compassion. Christians may not be perfect, but are called to make true use of whatever talents they have been given by the Lord. By using our talents to benefit the community as a whole we build His Kingdom.

Immortal God, Holy Lord, Father and Protector of all You have created, we raise our hearts to You today for those who have passed out of this mortal life. In Your loving mercy, Father of all, be pleased to receive them in Your heavenly company, and forgive the failings and faults they may have done from human frailty. Your only Son, Christ, our Saviour, suffered so cruelly that He might deliver them from the second death. By his merits may they share in the glory of His victory over sin and death. FIRST FRIDAY CINNAMON ROLLS The Knights of Columbus will be hosting First Friday pastries after First Friday Masses this Winter. Stan Gengler will be making homemade cinnamon rolls, a skill taught to him by his great bread baking mother. He has expanded the recipe by making raspberry poppy seed rolls. Both will be available to encourage parish members to attend Mass and receive Holy Communion the first Friday of each month. The after Mass event will continue through April (with the exception of February) in the downstairs Parish Center. Coffee will also be available. Please join us as we enjoy each other in a casual gathering. For all the faithful who have died we pray, but in particular for those dear to us, parents, relatives and friends. nor do we forget all who did good to us while on earth, who helped us by their prayers, sacrifice and example. We pray also for any who may have done us harm, and stand in special need of Your forgiveness. May the merits and prayers of our Virgin Mother, Mary, and those of all the Angels and Saints, speak for us and assist them now. This we ask in Christ's name. Amen. II. Father Almighty, we pray, through Your Mercy, that the souls of the deceased be released into Your Kingdom. We pray for our family members, friends and loved ones who have gone before us and who now await your promise of eternal life. We pray in earnest for all the souls in Purgatory, especially those who have no one to pray for them and those whose names have been forgotten. Amen Marian Macquette Visitors and Parishioners, for a limited time, you have an opportunity to purchase a beautiful bronze 17” statue of Our Blessed Mother Mary to grace your home or that of a loved one.

He wants each to do their best. And our best may not even be that good! If we put forth an honest, whole hearted effort He will be pleased. Even a small child can do his or her best, as can a feeble person. Our Lord is not really concerned how many talents with which we start; it’s the character of the person that counts. And how can we do our best? Dear Our Lady’s Families and Visitors, By doing things for the Lord. "Whatever you do, do from the heart, as for the Lord and not for “Well done, My good and faithful servant.
