33rd Sunday Ordinary Time 13th November 2016

Responsorial Psalm:
The Lord comes to rule the
peoples with fairness.
Gospel Acclamation:
Alleluia, alleluia!
Stay awake, praying at all times
for the strength to stand with confidence before the Son of Man!
Remembrance Sunday
Lord, we remember those who died
when madness ruled the world and evil
dwelt on earth, those we knew and
those whose very name is lost. Because
of their sacrifice, may we renew our fight
against cruelty and injustice, against
prejudice, tyranny, and oppression.
Still we cry to God out of the darkness of
our divided world. Let not the hope of
men and women perish. Let not new
clouds rain death upon the earth. Turn
to yourself the hearts and wills of rulers
and peoples, so that a new world may
arise where men and women live as
friends in the bond of your peace.
In a world still troubled with war, hatred
and unrest, we pray for peace and unity... You have called us to be one, to live
in unity and harmony, and yet we are
divided; race from race, faith from faith,
rich from poor, old from young; neighbour from neighbour. O Lord, by whose
cross all enmity is brought to an end,
break down the walls that separate us,
tear down the fences of indifference and
hatred; forgive us the sins that divide us,
free us from pride and self-seeking;
overcome our prejudices and fears. Give
us courage to open ourselves to others,
and by the power of your Spirit make us
We ask this through Jesus Christ our

For People of the Parish
e can always find
reasons to worry,
even when there’s nothing
to worry about. Some people love to be frightened
into thinking that every
flood, hurricane, war or
earthquake is somehow a
sign that the end of the
world is about to hit us.
They love to have something to worry about.

Jesus tells us to be
worried about three
things. But they’re not

worry about being deceived. Make sure
you’re not taken in by
claims about the end
of the world. If you
believe that the predictions
of Nostradamus or the
prophecies of Malachy are
true then it’s time to give in.
You should worry, says
Jesus, if you’re enticed by
these claims to know about
the future, by rumours, apparitions of gloom, or
plagues and revolutions as
forerunners of the end of
the world. Yes, worry. Because if you put your trust
in these predictions (which
are always explained away
when they fail to deliver)
then you’re far away from
trusting in God’s promises.
You’ve already been
to worry, says Jesus, when
you begin to fear that natural disasters have a sinister
meaning. All sorts of fearful
things take place in this
world, but your endurance
will win you your lives.

The Art of Dying well is a new website that offers a helping hand to those
grappling with issues around death
and dying. Based on Catholic tradition
but open to all, it features real-ife stories about dealing with the journey
through death to eternal life.
The boss of a global communications
company is looking for the following:
An electrician to reconnect the wires of
people who’ve stopped talking to each
A nurse to take care of the soul’s ills.
A bomb-disposal expert to defuse
A grave-digger to bury the hatchet of war.
A mason to build peace.
A traffic controller to keep people moving
in the right direction.
A musician to brighten up people’s lives.
A cook to provide food for all humanity.
A moderator to cut down on consumption.
A seamstress to patch up social fabric.
A maths teacher to help people count on
each other.
A computer scientist to encourage
A cleaning woman to dust down plain
old-fashioned common sense.
A journalist to spread the Good News.
