During this time of Autumn the sun is rising later and setting earlier with each passing day. At this point it is just coming up as I am driving to the parish The Way
for the 7 a.m. daily Mass. I am blessed of Faith
that my route takes me along the banks of the James River and across the Lion's Bridge. For a few precious sec‐
onds I can see the wide‐open sky beyond the James River Bridge, cov‐
ered or flecked with clouds, or perfectly clear, and always alight with the crisp new light of the sun at the beginning of the day. I'm always re‐
minded of Psalm 19: "At the end of the sky is the rising of the sun; to the furthest end of the sky is its course. There is nothing concealed from its burning heat." In Scripture and throughout the Christian tradition, the sun signifies the Word of God, through whom all things were made, incarnated in the person of Jesus Christ. There is no part of creation which is not illumi‐
nated by the saving love of Jesus, no corner of the world which does not know the presence of Christ. The rising of the sun each day also symbol‐
izes both the rising of Christ from the grave‐‐the Resurrection‐‐and his anticipated return at the Second Coming. Just as the rising sun illumi‐
nates the whole world, scattering the darkness and bringing everything into full view, so also the Resurrection and Second Coming of Jesus bring the light of salvation into the world, overcoming sin and making all things new. For this reason the direction of the rising sun, the East, has always been very richly symbolic for the Christian people: for centuries, wherever possible, churches were built facing East, and the most ancient practice of the church is that both people and priest face toward the East for the consecration of the bread and wine at Mass. The third Eucharistic Prayer in the Roman Missal, often used on Sun‐
days, includes these lines: "...you [O God] never cease to gather a peo‐
ple to yourself, so that from the rising of the sun to its setting a pure sac‐
rifice may be offered to your name." The sacrifice of Christians is what Paul calls "a sacrifice of praise." Since God has given us everything, the only real sacrifice we can make is to live the whole of our lives in praise of God, through his Son, in the power of the Holy Spirit. To live in the awareness that God's love illuminates the whole world and draws us all in; to live "facing East," rejoicing in Christ's Resurrection and anticipating his return; to be a people fed by Christ's own sacrifice in the Eucharist: this is the "sacrifice of praise" we celebrate each new day, with the rising of the sun. ~ Fr John David Bulletin notices and advertising: All information must be sent to the parish office no later than 8AM on Mondays.

October Marriage Tips:  Talk behind your spouse’s back…to God. If there is some‐
thing your spouse is struggling with or trying to discern, your prayers on their behalf are very important  Even if you’re not doing anything dishonest or flirting on Facebook or other social media, it can still steal time from your marriage. Take your eyes off your computer or phone and gaze at your beloved for a while  Set the alarm on your smart phones for the same time each day. When the alarm goes off it reminds you to stop and pray for your marriage.  By the Lord has this been done, and it is wonderful in our eyes.” (Mt 21:42) Do we recognize the wonderful works of the Lord in our lives and marriage? Give thanks to God for the gift of your life and your spouse. Save the Date! for our Next OLMC Marriage Enrichment Night The next gathering for couples will be Friday, November 14. Our topic will be “Fostering a Couple Connections”. Plan to join us at St. Michael Hall at 7:00 pm. Babysitting is offered with advanced reservation: emazary@olmc.org Music Ministry
