RESULTS OF BAZAAR
A sincere thanks on behalf of our Altar Society for all who
helped to make our 2014 Bazaar such a BIG success.
Our two day sale gave us a nice total of $5369.49 this year.
Without all your help to move things from the storage area,
set up, arrange everything, donate items and especially the
donation of your valuable time, the success we have each year
would not be possible.
So from all of us at the Altar Society a many thanks and God
bless you all once again.

FAITH FORMATION
WHAT’S YOUR CATHOLIC IQ?
The Year of Our Lord, the Church’s calendar year, begins on
(a) payday; (b) New Year’s Day; (c) Easter Sunday; (d) the First
Sunday of Advent
The Youth Group will be sponsoring a pie sale on Nov. 22nd &
23rd after all Masses. This is their first fund raising opportunity
and all support would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
FAMILY NIGHT
Our first Family Night dinner is Saturday, December 6th at
6:00. We will begin with Mass at 5:00 and then enjoy a complementary chili dinner. Then we will be making family rosaries
and conclude the evening praying a rosary in honor of Our Lady
of Guadalupe and Our Lady of Immaculate Conception.
EVERYONE is welcome to join us as we come together as a
parish community for fellowship and Liturgy.
Our holiday food drive will continue to run through Dec. 14th.
If you and your family are in a position to donate nonperishable
food items, boxes will be available in the church narthex and the
Education Building. Needed items include: Top Ramen,
instant oatmeal, meals in a can: chili, ravioli, pork & beans,
fruit cups, energy bars, microwaveable mac & cheese, fruit
juice, tuna, etc. Any donation will be greatly appreciated.
Over the past eleven years, parishioners
from St. Edwards have shown a true spirit
of giving as they filled the wish lists of
children in foster care. We will again be
sponsoring a giving tree to benefit foster
kids in Mason County. There are over 200
children who need help. Please share your
many blessings with these children who
have been displaced from their homes and
are facing an empty holiday. Names of the
children will be on the tree November 29th
in the church vestibule.
There will be no Youth Ministry on Monday, Nov. 24th
or CCD classes on Sunday, Nov. 30th. On behalf of the
Christian Education family, we wish you and your family all
of God’s blessings as you celebrate Thanksgiving.
ANSWER TO THE IQ QUESTION

PRIMERA LECTURA
Ezequiel 34, 11-12. 15-17
Lectura del libro del profeta Ezequiel
Esto dice el Señor Dios: "Yo mismo iré a buscar a mis ovejas y
velaré por ellas. Así como un pastor vela por su rebaño cuando
las ovejas se encuentran dispersas, así velaré yo por mis ovejas
e iré por ellas a todos los lugares por donde se dispersaron un
día de niebla y oscuridad.
Yo mismo apacentaré a mis ovejas, yo mismo las haré reposar,
dice el Señor Dios. Buscaré a la oveja perdida y haré volver a la
descarriada; curaré a la herida, robusteceré a la débil, y a la que
está gorda y fuerte, la cuidaré. Yo las apacentaré con justicia.
En cuanto a ti, rebaño mío, he aquí que yo voy a juzgar entre
oveja y oveja, entre carneros y machos cabríos".
Palabra de Dios.
SALMO RESPONSORIAL
R. El Señor es mi pastor, nada me falta.
El Señor es mi pastor,
nada me falta:
en verdes praderas me hace recostar.
R. El Señor es mi pastor, nada me falta.
Me conduce hacia fuentes tranquilas,
repara mis fuerzas;
me guía por el sendero justo,
por el honor de su nombre.
R. El Señor es mi pastor, nada me falta.
Preparas una mesa ante mí
enfrente de mis enemigos;
me unges la cabeza con perfume,
y mi copa rebosa.
R. El Señor es mi pastor, nada me falta.
Tu bondad y tu misericordia me acompañan
todos los días de mi vida,
y habitaré en la casa del Señor,
por años sin término.
R. El Señor es mi pastor, nada me falta.
Salmo 22, 1-6
SEGUNDA LECTURA
Corintios 15, 20-26. 28
Lectura de la primera carta del apóstol san Pablo a los corintios
Hermanos: Cristo resucitó, y resucitó como la primicia de todos
los muertos. Porque si por un hombre vino la muerte, también
por un hombre vendrá la resurrección de los muertos.
En efecto, así como en Adán todos mueren, así en Cristo todos
volverán a la vida; pero cada uno en su orden: primero Cristo,
como primicia; después, a la hora de su advenimiento, los que
son de Cristo.
Enseguida será la consumación, cuando, después de haber
aniquilado todos los poderes del mal, Cristo entregue el Reino a
su Padre. Porque él tiene que reinar hasta que el Padre ponga
bajo sus pies a todos sus enemigos. El último de los enemigos
en ser aniquilado, será la muerte. Al final, cuando todo se le
haya sometido, Cristo mismo se someterá al Padre, y así Dios
será todo en todas las cosas.
Palabra de Dios.

EVANGELIO
Mateo 25, 31-46
Lectura del santo Evangelio según san Mateo
En aquel tiempo, Jesús dijo a sus discípulos: "Cuando venga el
Hijo del hombre, rodeado de su gloria, acompañado de todos
sus ángeles, se sentará en su trono de gloria. Entonces serán
congregadas ante él todas las naciones, y él apartará a los unos
de los otros, como aparta el pastor a las ovejas de los cabritos, y
pondrá a las ovejas a su derecha y a los cabritos a su izquierda.
Entonces dirá el rey a los de su derecha: 'Vengan, benditos de
mi Padre; tomen posesión del Reino preparado para ustedes
desde la creación del mundo; porque estuve hambriento y me
dieron de comer, sediento y me dieron de beber, era forastero y
me hospedaron, estuve desnudo y me vistieron, enfermo y me
visitaron, encarcelado y fueron a verme'. Los justos le contestarán entonces: 'Señor, ¿cuándo te vimos hambriento y te
dimos de comer, sediento y te dimos de beber? ¿Cuándo te vimos de forastero y te hospedamos, o desnudo y te vestimos?
¿Cuándo te vimos enfermo o encarcelado y te fuimos a ver?' Y
el rey les dirá: 'Yo les aseguro que, cuando lo hicieron con el
más insignificante de mis hermanos, conmigo lo hicieron'.
Entonces dirá también a los de la izquierda: 'Apártense de mí,
malditos; vayan al fuego eterno, preparado para el diablo y sus
ángeles; porque estuve hambriento y no me dieron de comer,
sediento y no me dieron de beber, era forastero y no me
hospedaron, estuve desnudo y no me vistieron, enfermo y encarcelado y no me visitaron'.
Entonces ellos le responderán: 'Señor, ¿cuándo te vimos
hambriento o sediento, de forastero o desnudo, enfermo o encarcelado y no te asistimos?' Y él les replicará: 'Yo les aseguro
que, cuando no lo hicieron con uno de aquellos más insignificantes, tampoco lo hicieron conmigo'. Entonces irán éstos al
castigo eterno y los justos a la vida eterna".
Palabra del Señor.

THE LORD'S FLOCK
Sheep are high-maintenance animals. They are not very
intelligent. Without guidance and care, especially in a climate
like Israel's, they would die quickly from predators, starvation,
or just their own slowness. The scriptural image of us as the
Lord's flock is not terribly flattering to us, since it is only the
never-ending diligence of a watchful shepherd that allows the
flock to survive.
The feast of Christ the King was intended to call the world back
to Christ as the sole power of the world, to bring back a flock
that had been scattered by many negative forces of the growing
industrial, scientific, and war-torn world of the early twentieth
century. It is fitting that, as we celebrate Christ the King, we
hear about Christ the Shepherd who cares for us and who, likewise, will be there at the end of time. Interestingly enough, as
the Gospel illustrates, our own destiny is determined by the way
we have been "shepherds" to the rest of the flock.

TREASURES FROM OUR TRADITION
Coming to the end of the Church year, we can wonder how we
got "extreme unction" out of "anointing of the sick." "Extreme"
comes from a Latin phrase, in extremis, which in English refers
to the last struggle of a dying person. "Last rites" is a phrase in
common usage, and refers to the fact that years ago everyone
waited until the last crisis of illness to summon the priest. The
goal of anointing had always been healing and forgiveness, but
in time it began to be seen as a preparation for death. In a hard
world, almost anything from a hangnail to a sneeze could be
life-threatening, so perhaps the change was inevitable. The
emphasis on the penitential aspects was heightened, even to
the odd practice of Rome in the twelfth century, when the sick
person was sprinkled with ashes mixed with holy water and
given a hair shirt as a sign of penance.
The reformers thankfully overlooked some of these oddities
of history, and today the sacrament of the sick is much more
generously applied to persons in a wide range of situations. Still,
it is a sacrament of reconciliation, and for that reason is not celebrated for an infant or toddler, although there is a rite for a visit
to a sick child not including anointing or Communion.
--Rev. James Field, Copyright (c) J. S. Paluch Co.

PARISH SURVEY
As a carry-through of the “Good Leaders, Good Shepherds”
training that I went through with 30 other priests, there will be a
series of parish surveys conducted over the next several years in
the parish. Here is what we should do to prepare for that
survey:
If you have changed your e-mail address, send an e-mail from
your corrected address to Susan at <[email protected]> an
note the change.
1. If you do not have access to e-mail or a computer, we will
mail you a survey. Again leave your name at the office.
2. Give some thought and prayer to your participation in the
parish, considering both the strengths and weaknesses you have
experienced. Your reply will be considered your truthful views.
With the data from the survey it is my hope to develop a
Pastoral Plan from which we can build a strong faith-filled
evangelizing church. If this is something you are convinced is a
good move, please offer your services by giving me your name
on a slip of paper (I don’t trust my memory for things told me
on a Sunday morning!)
I am hoping that I can count on your cooperation, and I will
keep you in the loop as more detailed information is available to
me.

SONGS OF CHRISTMAS BRING
DOUBLE DELIGHTS
The holiday season is shortly
upon us, and once again we
tune our ears to this brief time
when choral voices fill the air
with glorious music that lifts
the human spirit. This year,
the residents of Mason County
and the Olympia area can look
forward to a special double
treat. The renowned Harstine
Island Community Choir teams
up with Masterworks Choral Ensemble of Olympia to present
two dynamic concerts featuring the most loved carols sung
throughout the ages. Familiar carols like “The First Noel”, “Joy
to the World", “Carol of the Bells” and “Ding! Dong! Merrily
on High” contain new twists with refreshing arrangements sung
for the enjoyment of families and friends. The choir not only
doubles, but also the accompaniment, as two pianists support
the voices with vibrant four hand playing.

retreats, spiritual direction and phone ministry at St. Placid
Priory. “I journey with others with a listening heart, especially
