There will be a 'Our Lady of Guadalupe Fiesta" in the Parrish Hall December Sunday 10 at 4:00 PM. All are welcome!

Advent Giving Project

On the evergreen trees on either side of the doors in the Narthex are tags with sex and ages of children from 3 months to 14 years. Please take a tag or two and purchase a toy for the children that come to our Food Pantry.

 

DO NOT wrap the gifts, but attach the tag to it and put it in the yellow wagon by the Chapel. Parents of children who come to our Food Pantry will come and “shop” for a gift for each of their children. Thank you for your generosity in meeting the needs of our brothers and sisters who are less fortunate.

Cor Jesu Requesting Assistance

The Cor Jesu Food Pantry is in need of a couple of more driver's to pick up donated groceries from local stores. If you have a pick-up truck and are able bodied please consider this ministry. This will only require about one hour of your time on Thursday mornings.

Depending on the response this may only be every other week. You should be able to do moderate lifting. Many hungry people in North Brevard depend upon our pantry and we will all appreciate your help.

 

Please contact Bruce Moquin at 321-543- 3530 for further information. 

 

Please consider assisting with this opportunity for the Food Pantry.

Pope Francis Intentions

Pope Francis Prayer Intentions for December
 
The Elderly
That the elderly, sustained by families and Christian communities, may apply their wisdom and experience to spreading the faith and forming the new generations
 

Mature experienced members of our families, parishes and societies have much to offer to the formation of young people today. Experience matters. The elderly are a treasure who inform our minds and spirits with lessons of the past so that we might better approach our future.

In the medical field, risk-taking among the young is seen as a great risk factor for injury or unhealthy behavior. Because the young have energy and ideals, they can accomplish much in the arenas of family, social and work life. On the other hand, without experience, the young tend to take risks not cautioned by the school of hard knocks. Here is where our elders can be of great help in spiritual and personal formation.

Pope Francis, in a radio address in 2016, proclaimed: “The Church regards the elderly with affection, gratitude, and high esteem. They are an essential part of the Christian community and of society: in particular they represent the roots and the memory of a people… Your maturity and wisdom, accumulated over the years, can help younger people in search of their own way, supporting them on the path of growth and openness to the future.”

It is a duty, an honor, and a privilege to share our holy faith with those who come behind us. It is likewise a duty, honor, and privilege to learn from those who have gone before us. How many of us have experienced firsthand the lessons of wisdom from a grandmother, grandfather, or elder among our acquaintances? All of us must lower our pride and open our hearts to listen to our elders: elders at the same time, can learn from listening to the young.

 

Reflections

Consider yourself kneeling before Christ on His Cross. Ask yourself: How have I shared the faith with young people? How am I sharing the faith? How ought I to share the faith? (Conversely, younger people might ask how they share the faith with their elders.)

 

Scripture

Mt 19:13-14 – Then children were brought to him that he might lay his hands on them and pray. The disciples rebuked them, but Jesus said, “Let the children come to me, and do not prevent them; for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”
