Friday Flocknote :: October 28, 2022
October was Respect Life Month, and the Month of the Rosary, where we contemplate with Mary, the life of Christ. We pray with the luminous mysteries, the sorrowful mysteries, and the glorious mysteries. It seems like right now in the church and for most of the people I'm talking with, it's a season of sorrow. Sorrow can threaten to take over everything and define everything. Sorrow can make us forget that the Holy Spirit is working in our life and God chose us, when he poured out his love into us, and what he's doing in the world right now. Even though the bad spirit likes to discourage us and keep us pressed down so that we just give up, in those times, I just end up spending a lot of time with Jesus. He's the savior and it's very comforting to know that when I can’t solve it, I was never meant to.
In November, we remember all of our dead. We remember those people that we've lost. We also want to remember what's maybe dead in our hearts, in our minds, and in our souls and that Christ can bring them to new life again. Many people have died, but their families were not always having funerals for them and so we want to remember them here at Saint Rose.
On November 1
, the Feast of All Saints, it's a holy day of obligation. Mass will be at 8:00 AM and 7:00 PM. I hope you'll come to that because the Saints are lights in the world the Saints are the ones who never forgot that the joy and the glory and the light of the baptism even as they go through the sorrow. Also, on Wednesday, November 2
, the Feast of All Souls, and one of the few days every year a priest can celebrate 3 masses. The first mass is for the requested intention and then the second mass will be at noon and we're going to celebrate Mass for all the dead particularly remembering all those who have not had a funeral, and then the third mass we will have at 5:00 PM.
We're going to dive deep into grace and hope, and while there is sorry it doesn't define everything. There is death, but it's not the end. There's light and glory, there is eternal life even in the new season.
I am praying for you

Children’s Liturgy of the Word (CLOW) is a worship experience geared especially for children ages 4 to 10. It mirrors the worship experience of the larger community with a style that is engaging and interactive for children. Each Sunday, volunteer catechists lead the children in the gospel reading, offer prayers, sing songs, and do hands-on activities.
Volunteering to help with CLOW provides a great opportunity for adults to strengthen their faith, gain a deeper understanding of the gospel readings, and share in the wonder and awe of children as they grow in God’s love. To get involved, contact Linda Kunrath at

Mother Teresa: No Greater Love Encore
Back by Popular Demand! Twenty-five years have passed since the death of Mother Teresa of Calcutta, sparking a renewed interest in this spiritual giant of the 20th century. Filmed on 5 continents and featuring unprecedented access to both institutional archives and the apostolates of the Missionaries of Charity, this film reveals not just who Mother Teresa was, but how her singular vision to serve Christ in the poor continues to be realized through the Missionaries of Charity today. This is far more than a documentary. It is at once a soaring tribute to a spiritual icon, a powerful witness of authentic Christian charity, and a guidepost for all who seek hope in our turbulent times.
Only showing is Wednesday Nov 2 at 7pm
