REFLECTION

If we live and die for God, we shall be reunited with him. The experience of life “in God” led most Jews to believe in bodily resurrection. Not so the Sadduccees; strict conservatives although morally lax, they did not allow the development of doctrine. They were seeking comedy and controversy when they posed their absurd and heartless question. The law required a man to marry his brother’s widow if there were no male heir, not to help her but to ensure immortality through survival of the family name. Jesus reflects like a rabbi: Our life face-to-face with God will be radically different from this life. We believe in resurrection because we are sure that the living God loves us. The first reading recounts the heroism of seven brothers and their mother who chose death rather than apostasize. How can those who lose their life for God be deprived of it for ever? The King of the world will raise them. St. Paul prays for comfort and strength for his beloved converts. His prayer is appropriate today, whether we face persecution and martyrdom or the insidious threats of a secularized world.

THE SHEPHERD’S TRUST

As members of our Catholic community, we regularly benefit from the tireless service of our priests. Called by God and ordained to care for His people, our priests serve our families, in churches, schools, hospitals, nursing homes, missions and on the streets. The Shepherds’ Trust ensures our priests can live their retirement years with dignity. For many of our retired shepherds, this means “lending a hand” to accommodate their special needs so that they continue to live comfortably.

The Shepherd’s Trust collection will take place in all parishes in the Archdiocese during next weekend’s Masses.

Envelopes will be distributed and your generosity is greatly appreciated.
