The core vocation in the Gospel of Mark is the
vocation, or call, to discipleship. Today's Gospel
passage provides us with one last example of what
the vocation to discipleship means, and one
example of what it doesn't mean. A destitute widow
shows us that discipleship means following Jesus'
way of service, even if it requires giving one's
livelihood (or life). The scribes show us by their
bad example that discipleship should entail a
vocation to extend God's care to those who are most
in need.
In our reading from the book of Kings another
widow and her son are close to death. They, too,
give what little they have, but they are rewarded by
Elijah with food enough for a year. And the reading
from the Letter to the Hebrews reminds us that
Jesus sacrificed his life "to bring salvation to those
who eagerly await him" (Hebrews 9:28).

"SHE CONTRIBUTED ALL SHE HAD"
Throughout the year we have seen in Mark's Gospel
a pervading focus on the meaning and cost of
discipleship. It is our core vocation as Christians to
follow Jesus' way of loving service, and accept
whatever sacrifices or suffering that may entail. In
today's Gospel reading a destitute widow acts as a
Christ-like figure to show us the extremes to which
our Christian vocation may lead us. Like Jesus, the
widow contributes "her whole livelihood" (her
life?) in sacrifice to God (Mark 12:44). We see,
however, that she is receiving nothing to make her
sacrifice worthwhile. The scribes are taking
advantage of her, and God will not be pleased.
Unlike the widow, Jesus' sacrifice brought eternal
reward to him and to all humankind. Our Christian
vocation calls us to give our lives as Jesus did. We
give, not in hope of being rewarded, but in
thanksgiving for the gift already given--the
salvation and loving kindness shown to us in the
sacrifice of Jesus Christ. We give knowing that we
may face suffering, as Jesus did, but trusting that
God will respond in mercy and love.

ARCHDIOCESE OF PHILADELPHIA
CALLED BY NAME
A FUTURE FULL OF HOPE
The Archdiocese of Philadelphia has encouraged all
parishes to participate in CALLED BY NAME, a
program of vocation awareness that begins this
weekend. This program offers us an opportunity to
pray for vocations; to recognize gifts and potential
for leadership and service in members of our
parish; and finally to call forth and encourage these
members to share their gifts in priesthood. Perhaps
you know a single man (16 years or older) who
would, in your opinion, have qualities to become a
priest. Please recommend this person by filling out
the response card found in church. Next weekend,
place the completed card in the collection basket
or return it to the parish office.

THE FATHERLESS AND THE WIDOW GOD
SUSTAINS
CONTINUED FROM COVER
Today's psalm (146:9) describes the response of God to
those who are in need: "The LORD protects strangers. /
The fatherless and the widow he sustains, / but the way
of the wicked he thwarts." The woman in our reading
from the first book of Kings acted in God's way by
protecting the stranger, Elijah. Elijah, in turn, extended
God's care by sustaining the widow and her son. The
scribes in the Gospel, however, do nothing to sustain the
widow who contributed "all she had, her whole
livelihood" (Mark 12:44). Instead they profited from her
devotion. How does the vocation to discipleship require
us to act toward those in need? How are you called to
extend God's protection and care in your part of God's
world?

I thank all who have contributed to the success of the Christmas Bazaar. Your outstanding support has once again
helped make the bazaar one of the outstanding events in our parish and in Bridesburg. The two winners of our “Early
Bird Drawing” this week are Tessie Gorski and Hubert Anuszkiewicz. They each won $50.00. Our Christmas Bazaar
continues tonight (Saturday) from 4:00 P.M. to 10:00 P.M. We invite everyone to come and see the beautifully
decorated hall and the train layout, enjoy a wonderful and delicious homemade dinner of Polish food and other delicacies
and to have fun shopping and playing the games. Bring a friend and enjoy the food, company and entertainment. Please
join us. We thank you for supporting this beautiful annual parish event.
Wednesday, November 11th, is Veteran’s Day – a time when we pause to reflect and pray for all the dedicated men and
women who served our country – especially those who have died. During this time of continued unrest in our world, we
think of those who have left family to protect the freedom we have. Remember with gratitude in your prayers today all
the living veterans – and during this month of November, all the deceased veterans – who have given so much to us.
On Tuesday, November 17th, at 7:00 P.M., we will have a special Memorial Mass for all those who have died in our
parish during the past year. Invitations were mailed to a family member of the deceased. We invite everyone to come
and remember those whom God has called to Himself. In the Old Testament Book of Maccabees we read that "it is good
and holy to think of the dead..." Those who have played a big part in our lives - and in the life of our parish - should be
remembered and prayed for during the month of November.
The Mass Intention Book for 2016 will be open on TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 10TH. Masses will be available from
January 1st to June 30th. Please DO NOT come to the Rectory for Masses on Monday.
Do you have a loved one who you would like to remember in a “Special Way”? The “Memorial Candle” is a beautiful
way of honoring them. We have them available weekly. The Sanctuary Lamps in the Church and Chapel and the candle
in front of the statue of St. John Cantius in Church burn as a steady reminder of God’s presence to us. If you would like
to have a candle burn for yourself or someone who is special to you, please call the Rectory.
We have Oplatek (Polish Christmas Wafers) available in the Rectory. Though traditionally we break and share the
Oplatek wafer at our Christmas meal (Wigilia), many families are doing this beautiful custom at their Thanksgiving
dinners, when the whole family is present.
OUR DYNAMIC CATHOLIC THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK: Our best days are those when we stay connected
with God throughout the day.
Remember the Four Signs of a Dynamic Catholic:
PRAYER
STUDY
GENEROSITY
EVANGELIZATION
Our next Dynamic Catholic Session will be on Tuesday, December 1st, at 7:00 PM in our hall.
Have a great week!
