  Deacon Mark Writing


A Note From Your Deacon  

The blind man replied to him, "Master, I want to see."  

Today’s gospel tells the wonderful story of Jesus healing Bartimaeus, a blind man who heard of Jesus and calls out for mercy when Jesus nears. Bartimaeus clearly knows what he wants. It is pretty obvious that a blind person would want to have sight above all things.  Jesus’ question to Bartimaeus, "What do you want me to do for you?” is also directed to us and worth reflecting on.  Do we wish greater vision and sight?  What are those areas of our life that we are blind to.  This is sort of a trick question because if we are blind to these areas, then we do not really know what it is that we cannot see.  I would suggest that the first area to reflect on is our relationships, the most important area of our lives. Father William Bausch in a beautiful essay he wrote on Bartimaeus asks these questions, “Why have we allowed the madness of individualism and consumerism to get ahead of our relationships?  Why did we allow our careers and our schedules, our entertainment and our desire to accumulate things push the people in our lives to the side? When we look at our lives, all too often our most important relationships—the relationships between husband and wife, children and parents, and friends—are not as treasured as we know they should be.  We don’t eat together; we don’t take time for the people we love.  Yet, in our most sober moment we know that nothing is more important than our relationships.” Then why don’t we see it?  I would suggest that in your own voice you cry out this plea of Bartimaeus for sight.  And if Christ were to ask you what you want to see, answer: “I want to see the importance of relationships in my life.”  If you make that your prayer, do not be surprised if our Lord hears you and grants your prayer.  “Immediately he received his sight and followed him on the way.”

Upon Further Reflection:

Dear Lord, so far today I’ve done all right: I haven’t gossiped; lost my temper; been greedy; nasty, selfish or over indulgent.

I’m very thankful for the kind of day you have given me.

But in a few minutes, Lord, I’m going to get out of bed, and from then on I’m going to need a lot more help. Amen

In His Mercy

Deacon Mark



The Mass – A slice at a time

The Manners the Collect ends

  • If the prayer is directed to the Father: through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever;
  • If it is directed to the Father, but the Son is mentioned at the end: Who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever;
  • If it is directed to the Son: who live and reign with God the father in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever.

The people, joining in this petition, make the prayer their own by means of the acclamation, Amen. At Mass only a single project is ever said. 



Faith Formation


The Faith Formation students met on Wednesday October 24th and practiced for our upcoming Children’s Mass, which will start at 6:15 pm on November 7th.  Students, their families and all parishioners welcome to attend and join in the potluck after Mass.  Reminder No Class on Halloween October 31s
