Reading I Wisdom 7.7 - 11 Responsorial Psalm I accounted wealth as nothing in comparison to wisdom.
Reading II Hebrews. 4.12 - 13 Gospel Mark 10.17- 30
Food for Thought
  • An extraordinary morning, Mark the less poetical of the evangelists, throws in details that bring the gospel to life.
  • Why does Jesus take issue with the man calling him ‘good’? Then ‘’Jesus, looking at him loved him’. Something in Jesus’ gaze was unforgettable”.
  • Mark does not spare us the shock and grief as he hears and then rejects Jesus’ invitation, or Jesus’ calm acceptance of that refusal. He will not do violence to our freedom.

ARE YOU NEW TO OUR PARISH?     WELCOME!

Welcome to those who want to make our parish their faith home. You may have come from other places. You may have been “away for a while”. Be assured that we love to have you among us. We would appreciate it very much if you identified yourself at Mass. It would also help if you would take the time to fill out a registration form. The next time you are with us, you may leave it in the collection basket or give it to one of the ushers or to the priest.

Thank you and welcome.

Last week, we introduced you to the motto for this fall’s Development and Peace campaign “Working our land, fighting for our rights.” Over the years, Development and Peace campaigns have advocated that people who farm or live off the land should have privileged access to it. Support for food sovereignty is growing around the world. A 2008 World Bank study affirmed the importance of food sovereignty and the essential role of small-scale farmers in achieving it. Food sovereignty, with its emphasis on small-scale community agriculture and food grown for local markets, is a vision developed by small-scale farmers of the Global South, many of them Development and Peace partners.

That’s why our action this year asks the G8 to support small-scale farmers in the Global South. According to our partners, small-scale farmers’ ability to feed populations and protect ecosystems is threatened by developed countries’ loan and aid policies. Such policies have encouraged industrial agriculture in the Global South, most recently by supporting agrofuel plantations.

To learn more about the agrofuel trend, please feel free to take any of the three “Backgrounder” documents at the entrance to the church prepared by Development and Peace. Or you can find more information at the Development and Peace website www.devp.org.
