November is special. We begin the month (11/1) with a celebration of All Saints – women and men, girls and boys of every time and place who are with God in heaven. “Heaven is not a place in the cosmos but a place in God” – Pope Benedict. On All Souls (11/2) we commend our loved ones, the faithful departed, to God’s mercy.  November 8th is Stewardship Sunday. Annunciation is in the midst of a Stewardship Appeal – Christ Is Life. We ask our parishioners and friends to make a thoughtful and prayerful commitment of personal/family involvement and financial support. Stewardship is so much more than giving money. Stewardship is living with awareness, appreciation and generosity.  In the early morning November sky, we can see the alignment of Jupiter, Mars and Venus. We are humbled by our place in the universe and yet overwhelmed by God, Creator & Father, who bestows the very gift of existence and his divine love and mercy on us in Jesus Christ. Conscious of our blessings we live with an attitude of gratitude and the ready inclination to share. November 11th is Veterans Day and on that day The Frontline Faith Project is sponsoring it’s fourth annual “An American Moment” to honor the men and women of our Armed Forces, past and present. This event will include one moment of silent prayer — prayer to thank our military for their service, to pray for the peaceful repose of those who have died, and to pray for the intentions of those still living. This event will take place at noon in each respective time zone, all across the world, on Veterans Day 2015.

Fittingly, our stewardship finds expression on Thursday November 26th on our national Thanksgiving holiday. Liturgically, November reaches a crescendo on Sunday November 22nd with the Feast of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe. At baptism we become heralds of the Great King who is disguised in the least of our brothers and sisters.  Often unknowingly, when we do a kindness to a person/people in need, we do it unto Him. Come join us during the month of November.
