All Souls’ Day – November 2, 2014
from Fr. Muir on October 31, 2014
LOOKING BACK...A huge thanks to everyone who made the St. Rose Oktoberfest such a smashing success this year. From our huge team of volunteers that did tasks big and small...to our committee heads who worked tirelessly behind the scenes for months....to our parish staff who generously added to their already full work schedules...to our local community and business groups who partnered with us as sponsors and vendors...and to our indefatigable and infectiously joyful co-chairs, Jeff and Kristin Smith, who oversaw and guided all the moving parts toward a wonderful festival: THANK YOU!
LOOKING AHEAD...Today is All Souls’ Day...a day set aside for praying for the souls of the dead. Sometimes "praying for the dead" seems to some to be irrational, macabre, or, worse, as a violation of trust in God. There's a line from the Song of Songs in the Old Testament that says, "Stern as death is love, relentless as the netherworld is devotion" (8:6). The Church has long seen hidden in this line the infinite love of Christ that loves to--and through--the experience of His death on the Cross.
When He rises from the dead, the grave loses. His Love triumphs in the Resurrection. We have a destiny beyond the grave, and we're one human family, and one body in Christ. That's why we pray for the dead...that they would be perfectly configured to God...to the love that death cannot stop. So…we'll pray for the dead all through November in a special way.
WE'RE NEARING THE END of our 60 day celebration of our 10th anniversary of St. Rose Philippine Duchesne. MARK YOUR CALENDARS: SUNDAY NOVEMBER 16, 2014, we'll celebrate the Solemnity of our Patroness at all Sunday Masses...BUT after the 11 am Mass that day, we'll have a special EUCHARISTIC PROCESSION to a special site on our grounds...there, we'll have a special service in which we'll ask God to consecrate us, and the whole parish, in a special way. Then, we'll celebrate. And look forward to our next ten years.
