Assumption-Florian Parish Bulletin October 17, 2021

For the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve and to give his life as a ransom for many.”   (Mark 10:45) If you held a mirror up to your life, would it reflect God’s love and mercy?  If you are struggling with this, try changing your attitude from “I want more” to “thank you God for everything you have given me, I have enough to share”.  This change in perspective will bring you joy through service to others.  Pray daily to become less self-centered and to become more God-centered.

[Jesus said to them] “You know that among the Gentiles those whom they recognize as their rulers lord it over them, and their great ones are tyrants over them. But it is not so among you; but whoever wishes to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wishes to be first among you must be slave of all. For the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life a ransom for many.” (Mark 10:42B-45)

Ponder: What do I need to control and manipulate others?

Prayer: Lord, I am grateful for your gift of humility. Gave me a humble heart so that I may imitate your compassionate ways with all people.

Practice: With a grateful heart I will think about the needs of others before my own.

Do Something Beautiful for God – The Essential Teachings of Mother Teresa

October 15 – Suffering is an inevitable part of life. When suffering comes to us, let us accept it with a smile. This is one of the greatest gifts God has given us: the courage to accept with a smile whatever He gives, whatever He allows whatever He takes.

October 16 – If you were to die today, what would others say about you? What was in you that was beautiful, that was Christlike, that helped others to pray better? Face yourself, with Jesus at your side, and do not be satisfied with just any answer. Go deep into the question. Examine your life.

October 17 – When we realize that we are all sinners needing forgiveness, it will be easier for us to forgive others. We have to be forgiven in order to be able to forgive. If I do not understand this, it will be very hard for me to say, “I forgive you” to anyone.

October 18 – Material riches and spiritual riches can both choke you if you do not use them fairly. For not even God can put anything in a heart that is already full. One day there springs up the desire for money and for all that money can provide: superfluous luxury. Eating fine meals, the finest clothes, luxury homes, expensive vacations. These things are trifles. One desire leads to another, and then we begin to think that we need these things. The result is uncontrollable dissatisfaction. Let us live simply and remain as empty as possible so that God can fill us up.

October 19 – Life is an adventure, dare it.

October 20 – If we were truly humble, nothing would change us-neither praise nor discouragement. If someone were to criticize us, we would not feel discouraged. If someone would praise us, we also would not feel proud.

October 21 – Bring love into your homes. If you truly love God, start loving your son or your daughter and your spouse. And the elderly, where are they? In nursing homes! Why are they not with you? And where is the retarded child? In an institution! Why is he not with you? That child is a gift from God.
