It is a very special weekend as we celebration the
Solemnity of All Saints (Nov. 1) and the
Commemoration of All the Faithful Departed
(Nov. 2). Even though All Saints Day falls on a
Saturday, and the obligation for that holy day is
waived, it does not mean that we stop living a
saintly life. Each one of us is called to be great
saints, so do not miss the opportunities.
As Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI says, “To
become saints means to fulfill completely what we
already are, raised to the dignity of God’s adopted
children in Christ Jesus….The saints bring to light
in creative fashion quite new human
potentialities….The saints are themselves the
living spaces into which one can turn….There is no
isolation in heaven. It is the open society of the
saints and, consequently, also the fulfillment of all
human togetherness...One might say that the saints
are, so to speak, new Christian constellations, in
which the richness of God’s goodness is reflected.
Their light, coming from God, enables us to know
better the interior richness of God’s great
light...Nothing can bring us into close contact with
the beauty of Christ himself other than the world of
beauty created by faith and light that shines out
from the faces of the saints, through whom his own
light becomes visible” (Magnificat, 26-27).
The saints are held up for all of us as how to live
our lives and our faith. We are assured that the
communion of saints are always interceding for us.
In thinking about the saints, we also think about
our loved ones who have gone before us. They
may not be canonized saints by the Church, but
maybe their example reflected a saintly life.
As the Magnificat states, “The commemoration
of All Souls is rooted in the Church’s strong
conviction that we, the living, have a
serious responsibility in love to
accompany with prayer those who have
died but who must yet complete the
purificatory preparation every human
being needs to be able to dwell in the allencompassing love of God” (pg. 39).
God Bless, Dear Friends, Fr. David

Diocesan and Area News
Vocation Brief: This is National Vocation Awareness Week. Pray for those who are discerning a call to proclaim the hope of the Resurrection as
religious brothers, sisters, priests or deacons. If you feel God is offering you the grace of a vocation to the priesthood or religious life, contact Fr. Gale
Hammerschmidt at [email protected] or call the Chancery at 785-827-8746.
Diocesan Vocation Prayer Cards: With National Vocation Awareness Week upon us, we will begin using the new Diocesan Vocation Prayer Card at our weekly
Masses. The prayer cards will be available at Mass and the prayer will also be reprinted in the bulletin for your use at home.
World Mission Sunday: Thank you for your generous response to the Society for the Propagation of the Faith on World Mission Sunday. Your generous help will
reach the Church in Mongolia and local churches throughout the Missions, where the poor receive practical help and the experience of God’s love and mercy, His
hope and peace. For more information, please visit: www.IAmAMissionary.org.
Seminarian Collection: What does the Seminarian collection on November 8 & 9 help with? This collection assists the diocese in the education and formation of
our 13 Seminarians that are currently discerning God’s call to the Priesthood. The day to day expenses of educating and housing these fine young men is costly,
but with your gift, you are making a commitment to the future of our diocese.
The Register: Look for a donation envelope in your Nov. 14 Register. All Catholic families registered at a parish in the diocese automatically receive The Register,
which is published on the second and fourth Friday of each month. Instead of requiring subscriptions, we ask for a $20 donation to cover printing and mailing costs.
Please support our ministry for 2015 and send your donation as soon as possible.
JOY of the GOSPEL QUOTES: The pastoral letter written by our Holy Father, Pope Francis, has been put in bulletin form. You can find the quotes here:
“The poor have much to teach us. Not only do they share in the sensus fidei, but in their difficulties they know the suffering Christ. We need
to let ourselves be evangelized by them” (198)!
Message for Life: “If we fail to defend innocent human life in the womb, we will confront the culture of death on our own death bed! Let us never forget Terry
Schiavo and the others who have been victims of the culture of death.”
Catechesis for World Meeting of Families: The Meaning of Human Sexuality- “The tangible, earthly, corporeal world is more than inert matter or modeling clay
for the human will. Creation is sacred. It has sacramental meaning. It reflects God’s glory. That includes our bodies. Our sexuality has the power to procreate,
and shares in the dignity of being created in the image of God. We need to live accordingly.”
Message for Life (Parenting Pointers): “Respect Life Month…Consider all lives that are threatened or suffering in our society today, no matter the age. What life
issue is dearest to your heart? (Abortion, Capital Punishment, Gun Control, Supporting single mothers, Poverty…) Tell your child why. Can you take one action
together such as read up on it, donate, write letters, take political action, pray...?” From Susan Vogt
Encounter Weekend at Conception Seminary: The next weekend is Nov. 8, 9, 10. If you know of a college aged young man or senior in high school who may be
interested in attending the Encounter Weekend, please contact Fr. Gale Hammerschmidt at [email protected].
The World Meeting of Families is scheduled for Sept. 22-27 at Philadelphia, Penn. in 2015. The theme emphasizes that “Love Is Our Mission, and it is by loving
God and one another that we will be fully alive”. Please pray for WMOF and look at the website: www.worldmeeting2015.org.
