Has none but this foreigner returned to give thanks to God?”   

Luke 17: 18

Most of us live “easy” lives.  We have food, shelter and clothing.  We go on vacation every year and own a car or two.   Most of us take this all for granted.  Did you ever notice that people with the least amount of possessions are usually the most grateful?  Shouldn’t this be the other way around?  Take time every day and thank God for all He has given you.

Liturgical Reflection.  

“Our God is filled with mercy.  Ten lepers are healed.  Their brokenness has been made whole.  Many tend to run away or turn their back on those in need.  We become uncomfortable or lack the time to give assistance.  We follow Jesus who reached out and showed pity to those ten persons.  There are those among us who are eager to be made whole.  In our families, neighborhoods, and church communities, we have sisters and brothers who wish to have their brokenness healed.  In mercy may we reach out to them, as did our Lord in today’s Gospel.  Mercy can make dramatic changes in the lives of others.

Stewardship Reflection: 

Only one leper acknowledged Jesus as the source of his cure and returned to thank him.  May we give thanks daily to our generous God for all that we receive!

EVERY LIFE MATTERS – Ultrasound Initiative

The October 8/9th masses kicks off the Knights of Columbus Baby Bottle campaign to raise funds for the purchase of an Ultrasound machine for the Tyrone Crises Pregnancy Support center, ELM (Every Life Matters).  Numerous Knights of Columbus local and state councils have qualified for matching funds from the Supreme Council office towards the purchase ultrasound machines with over 540 purchased.  Ultrasound imaging is the most effective tool in saving our nation’s babies from the horrible death of abortion.  No aspect of changes in the Pregnancy Resource Center movement has had a more significant impact on their lifesaving work than the addition of ultrasound technology.  Industry sources report that over 90% of expectant mothers considering abortion choose life after they meet their baby via ultrasound.  Please take a baby bottle home and prayerfully consider a donation to this wonderful cause.
