Bulletin Shorts for the Thirty-Second Sunday in Ordinary Time

Thirty-Second Sunday in Ordinary Time – 06 November 2022 

2 Maccabees 7:1-2, 9-14.  Psalm 17:1, 5-6, 8, 15.  2 Thessalonians 2:16–3:5.  Luke 20:27-38.

What Is This Resurrection?  The Bible readings have something to say about faithfulness.  The brothers Maccabees remain faithful to the Lord even while facing torture and death.  Saint Paul tells the Thessalonians – and us – God is faithful and, thus, be faithful in return.  In conversation with the Sadducees, Jesus says that as important as this life is, resurrected life is more so and will be much more than we imagine.

  • How will I be faithful this week?
  • To whom will I be faithful?
  • How will I keep my focus on resurrected life and not let prosperity of this life get in the way?

Use this prayer card to be ever mindful of the Works of Mercy.
