Notes from the Pastor’s Pen – November 21, 2021

Dear friends,

This Sunday, November 21, the Church celebrates the Solemnity of Christ the King and so calls to mind the lordship of the Jesus in our lives and over the whole universe. As we celebrate this Solemnity, let us thank the Lord God for giving us His Son who brings us salvation.

This coming Thursday, November 25, we celebrate Thanksgiving Day and so give thanks to God for all the blessings that He has bestowed upon us. Thanksgiving is a time to give thanks to God for our faith and ask the Lord Jesus to bless our
families and all our loved ones. We also pray for all those who are suffering at the present time and all those who experience loneliness around the holidays. We ask God to be with them in a special way, that they will experience His abiding presence in their lives.

Next Sunday, November 28, the Church begins the liturgical season of Advent and so invites us to draw closer to the Lord Jesus who came among us, who is with us now, and who will one day return in glory. As we make our way through these holy days, let us draw closer to the Lord Jesus who invites us to share more fully in the life that He came to bring us by His Birth.

In Christ,
Father Bené
