Our Lady of Malibu Catholic Community

Thirtieth Sunday in Ordinary Time
Our Mission
The Catholic Community of Our Lady of
Malibu welcomes all people to worship
God, to grow spiritually in the Catholic
faith, and to receive encouragement and
direction in shaping the wider world in
light of the Gospel.
Treasures From Our Traditions
Sadly, one of the most difficult reforms of the
Second Vatican Council for the Church to embrace has
been one of the most thorough and beautiful: the
sacrament of penance. Because it is individual and
private, it has been difficult for the changes to take root.
Sometimes a priest may be grounded in the earlier form,
and at other times the penitent may resist the priest’s
attempt to blend in the proper texts and rituals.
Perhaps because the new form is almost identical in
structure to the old, it has been difficult to instititute. It
may also be true that with the liturgy in English now, it
is far more clear that the Eucharist, too, is a “sacrament
of reconciliation.”
It is certainly true that there are different skills and
gifts in ministry, and experienced penitents know that
not all priests are equally at ease in this sacramental
encounter. Sometimes a difficult experience can drive
people away from a liturgy that is spiritually rich and
rewarding. Yet we know that one bad meal seldom puts
people off restaurants forever: the dinner gong tends to
dispel bad memories, and so we try again. Individual
confession and absolution is for us both treasure and
tradition. If you haven’t been for a while, consider
coming back to praise God for this gift of mercy.

Bethlehem Families
Mexico Mission
We have set the date for our next trip for January 3,
2015 and because of the holidays we are preparing early
and would like to start collecting goods now. We are
asking for canned goods (tuna, soup, vegetables, fruit),
juice packs, dry pasta, hard candy, peanut butter and
jelly; things that can be easily stored for a few
months. Of course, you can bring any of the items
listed on the grocery bags which are at the back of the
church. We also take monetary donations which we use
to purchase food to compliment your donations.
It is your continued support that enables us to bring this
much needed help to our less fortunate brothers and
sisters in Tijuana.
Christian Families of Bethlehem
On Saturday November 1 and Sunday, November 2,
the Christian Families of Bethlehem, the Holy Land,
will be at OLM to sell hand carved religious articles
made of olive wood, which is their only source of income due to the political situation and lack of tourism.
Please stop and see Mr. Raji Saada and see their beautiful work.
November Remembers
You will find The Book of the
Dead on the table under the statue of Joseph from now through
the month on November. Please
feel free to add the names of
loved ones who have departed.
