BULLETIN ADS: DIOCESAN PUBLICATIONS THIS week, Greg Pope, a representative from our bulle-tin publisher, Diocesan Publications, will be seeking new and renewing present parish bulletin ads. If you are inter-ested in advertising please call the parish office for con-tact information. We feel this is an excellent opportunity for local businesses to increase their visibility in the com-munity. Advertising in the bulletin allows this publication to be printed each week at no cost to the parish.
THIRTY-SECOND SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME We are coming to the close of another liturgical year. This past year we have been hearing a great deal from St. Matthews Gospel. We are coming to the end of St. Mat-thews Gospel and we hear Jesus telling parables to his dis-ciples about what the kingdom of heaven will be like. He uses several different images because he wants to put before the people whatever picture will help them to appreciate the readiness factor that always applies. This part of Matthews Gospel focuses on the last things, particularly Gods final judgment, which will mean con-demnation for the wicked and salvation for the justIn this part of his long address, Jesus uses parables that explain how believers should live in the present age as they await the parousia (second coming). (Workbook for Lectors, Gospel Readers and Proclaimers of the Word, 2017, p. 280)
While the first reading praised Wisdom and all those who seek her, Jesus gives us the parable contrasting the foolish and the wise wanting us to consider who is who, both then and now. The difference between foolishness and wisdom, here and elsewhere in Matthews Gospel, is that the wise hear the word and put it into practice. CCHD-Catholic Campaign for Human Development Next weekend is the one designated for the annual Catho-lic Campaign for Human Development appeal. Over 46 million people in the United States live in poverty. This collection supports programs to empower people to identify and address the obstacles they face as they work to lift themselves out of poverty. By supporting this collection you give people a hand up, not a hand out. Learn more about the Catholic Campaign for Human Development at www.usccb.org/cchd/collection . Please prayerfully consider what you might be able to give to this years appeal. Thank you for your generosity. CHILI SUPPER THIS COMING FRIDAY Ive written about it twice before. Suffice it to say therell be a variety of chilis to sample in the Parish hall from about 5:00pm to 6:00pm. You can then head over to the Silver Bells in the City parade, or turn around and go home. Because parking is always an issue that night, we put vol-unteer guards at our entrances and anyone who has put their Church Envelope on their dashboard, will be able to use one of the available parking places. Barring a repeat of those torrential rains that came either in 2016 or 2015 there will be some pretty nifty fireworks behind and above the Capitol building at the end of the pa-rade. Come one, come all. ~Fr. B ST. VINCENT CATHOLIC CHARITIES
