The Weekend of October 20-21
by Adam Mumm
This Weekend at SJTW
Father Paul joins us this weekend as we celebrate the 29th Sunday in Ordinary Time.
In the Readings
First Reading Isaiah 53:10-11
In the First Reading, Isaiah talks about how Jesus will give up His for the sake of others. Isaiah says that Jesus acts as servant and savior, suffering so that others may live.
Second Reading Hebrews 4:14-16
In the Second Reading, Paul reminds us that Jesus understands what it’s like to be human. Our savior can sympathize with our weakness and gives us His mercy and help.
Gospel Mark 10:35-45
In the Gospel, James and John ask Jesus if they can have honored spots on His right and left in Heaven. Jesus tells them they do not understand what they are asking and that they must be willing to drink the cup He drinks and be baptized the way He is baptized. This means they must be willing to suffer for the sake of others. Jesus tells His disciples that whoever wishes to be great must be a servant. They must be like Jesus, the Son of God, who came not to be served but to serve and give His life for others.
We will welcome a new member into God’s family though baptism at the 11:00 Mass.
There will be Children’s Liturgy of the Word at the 8:30 and 11:00 Masses. All kids between the ages of 5-10 and their guardians are invited to Martin Hall following the Gloria.
Time and Talent Forms
Our seasonal Time & Talent forms for the Celebration of Remembrance and the Advent/Christmas season will be in the pews starting this weekend. Fill out the form and place it in the collection basket if you would like to help.
The Third Sunday Collection this weekend will go to the 57th Annual Ginter Family Thanksgiving meal which serves over 2,200 people in our Dubuque community. Thanks so much for your generosity in helping those in need.
