33rd  Sunday in Ordinary Time  - Nov. 19, 2006
There are two important lessons in today’s gospel.  First, there will be an end of time as we know it and second, that the wise will be able to read the signs of the end of time because they will be alert.  We should be filled with hope.  We can be ready for Jesus’s return by staying alert.  This means that we must pray and receive the sacraments regularly. We have no need to be afraid or anxious.  Jesus has given us the means through His church to become close to Him.

St. John Fisher Dinner Cancelled

I am very disappointed to pass on the news that our St. John Fisher Dinner on November 25th has been cancelled. I received word on Tuesday that Avery Cardinal Dulles, S.J., our St. John Fisher Visitor, had unexpected heart surgery this past week. He told me that he was feeling fine, but his doctors have not given him permission to travel until at least the new year, requiring that he cancel his visit to Queen’s. He hopes to come another time, but is not able to accept new appointments until the doctor gives approval. Ever the theologian and faithful Jesuit, he told me to pass on to everyone his own disappointment, but to take this occasion to remember that we cannot put our trust in earthly realities, but only in the supernatural. I, in turn, assured him of our prayers, and ask that you pray for his quick return to full strength.

O God, who has chosen the Apostles to propagate the faith & to establish Your Holy Church, throughout the world, we earnestly beseech You to choose from amongst our people many priests deacons, religious brothers & sisters and lay persons who will gladly devote their entire lives in making you known & loved by all.  Through the intercession of our Blessed Lady, we ask this through Christ our Lord.   Amen

A friend who is a physician told this story about her four-year-old daughter.  On the way to preschool, the doctor had left her stethoscope on the car seat, and her little girl picked it up and began playing with it.  Be still, my heart, thought my friend, my daughter wants to follow in my footsteps!  Then the child spoke into the instrument: “Welcome to McDonald’s.  May I take your order?”
