      A Note from Father Nonito

The Sadducees did not believe in the resurrection. In an encounter with Jesus, this Sunday’s gospel, they obviously ridiculed this belief by posing a hypothetical question about a woman with seven successive husbands: “At the resurrection whose wife will that woman be? For all seven had been married to her.” 


Why was it that the Sadducees did not believe in the resurrection? According to them, such belief was not explicitly taught in the Law of Moses. It was only a deduction by some interpreters of the Law. However, there was something more profound than this belief. In Jesus’ time, the Sadducees were an exclusive group made up of the cream of the Jewish society: the wealthy, the aristocrats, the priestly class. With a life like theirs, who needs a resurrection? For them, if ever there is an afterlife, it is simply a glorified continuation of earthly life. 


Jesus answered the question by meeting the Sadducees on their own ground: the Law of Moses. He said that Moses also wrote that “God is the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob, and he is not the God of the dead, but of the living.” How can Moses proclaim God in this way when Abraham, Isaac and Jacob were long dead? This means that the three great figures of the Old Testament were still “alive.” 



Nobody has come back yet from the dead to tell us the real score. Is there really an afterlife? What kind of existence shall we have? This reflection of a spiritual writer could help: we don’t know what the future holds for us, but we know who holds the future. Isn’t He enough to make us believe? 

In Jesus Christ,


Fr. Nonito


St. Michael Faith Formation seeks to foster among young people a lifelong relationship with God and His Church so all may live as disciples who know, love and serve Him.




 Religious Education Update:

On Wednesday November 6th we celebrated our first Children’s Mass of this year with the children lecturing, altar serving and bringing up the gifts. Afterwards we enjoyed a potluck.  Thank you to the parents for attending, all who brought food to share and the catechists in preparing the children and Rayna working in the kitchen. We are looking forward to the next Children’s Mass scheduled for December 4th at 6PM.  Anyone in our parish is welcome to attend.

God calls each of His children – each of us – to be a saint
