This year the Solemnity of All Saints (November 1st) falls on
Saturday and the Commemoration of All the Faithful Departed
(All Souls Day) (November 2nd) falls on Sunday. The Table of
Liturgical Days ranks these days at no. 3, just ahead of
Sundays in Ordinary Time.
All Saints Day. All Saints Day is not a holy
day of obligation this year as a result of the
1992 USCCB decision abrogating the precept
to attend Mass when November 1st falls on a
Saturday or Monday. Even though the Solemnity of All Saints
is not a holy day of obligation this year, it always remains for
us a holy day which is commended to be observed. Therefore,
parishes are encouraged to celebrate the Solemnity with a Mass
on Friday Night or on Saturday morning. On Friday evening,
October 31st, Evening Prayer II of All Saints is celebrated; but,
for pastoral reasons, where it is the custom, it may be followed
by Evening Prayer for the Dead.
All Souls Days. Since All Souls Day outranks the
Sunday of Ordinary Time, Masses celebrated on
Saturday evening (Nov 1st) and Sunday (Nov 2nd)
are to be for All Souls Day, with its readings,
prayers, and pastoral considerations. However,
Morning and Evening Prayer II of the 31st Sunday
in Ordinary Time is prayed for individual recitation and the
Office of the Dead is prayed when celebrated with the people.
non-perishable food items for 25 needy families in the
local area. The church is purchasing the turkeys but we
need food for all the trimmings such as vegetables,
potatoes, stuffing mix, etc. Think about what you would
like to see on your table for Thanksgiving for some ideas.
Get a head start – start collecting your food items now. If
you would like to contribute money, instead of food
items, place your cash or check (made out to Holy
Family) in the collection basket or
drop it off at the parish office.
PLEASE indicate on your check or

October is Respect Life Month. The children in Faith
Formation are raising money now through the end of
December to help the Albemarle Crisis Pregnancy
Center with their various needs through the "Baby
Boomerang" program. We are asking our
parishioners to assist in this fundraising effort by
picking up a baby bottle (available in the gathering
area) at the end of Mass and filling it, hopefully many
times, with cash or coins. Each bottle has a baby's
name on it for the family to pray for. Please consider
taking a baby bottle (or two) home to help raise
money for this vital ministry. Funds raised through
this program will be given to the Albemarle Crisis
Pregnancy Center at the end of December. Thank you
for your support and generosity.
Do you receive the word of God with joy as the
Thessalonians did? Their faith showed in their actions. They
became models for other believers.
The first reading tells us to put our faith into action.
This passage is part of a long list of ordinances God
commanded the Israelites to observe. God will judge us by
how we treat our neighbors. God will hear the cries of any
whom we neglect or mistreat and will come to their defense.
In today’s Gospel the Pharisees put the question of
God’s law to Jesus. “Which commandment of the law is the
greatest?” (Matthew 22:36) How could he possibly choose
from all the detailed commandments the Jews observed? He
was sure to offend somebody by his answer! Of course, Jesus
went right to the heart of the matter. Love is the greatest
commandment—love of God and love of neighbor. Everything
else is based on this.

Project Rachel Support Group. Abortion is one of
the most common procedures in the US, experienced by
millions of women; many of the women suffering from an
abortion are Catholic. Abortion creates a wound in a postabortive woman (or man) often resulting in spiritual and emotional
problems. The Project Rachel ministry assists women and men who
have been touched by abortion to find healing. There is a support
group beginning in the Raleigh/Triangle area in November. If you
have experienced an abortion and would like more information about
the support group, contact Project Rachel at (919) 852-1021 or
email [email protected] For more information go to (website) Note: all calls and
appointments are kept strictly confidential. - See more at:

Dear Brothers and Sisters,
October 26, 2014
In the first reading today from Exodus, God speaks of the
alien, the widow, the orphan and our neighbor, saying, “If he
cries out to me, I will hear him; for I am compassionate.” Each
day Catholic Charities staff and volunteers throughout the
Diocese of Raleigh strive to mirror God’s compassion to our
neighbors in need. In the past year, this outreach from the
Church assisted more than 68,000 people from 19,000 families.
With God’s grace and the help of your prayers and contributions, the staff of Catholic Charities and over 1,800 volunteers
are able to perform the corporal works of mercy in service to
these families. Thank you for your constant and generous
support to our brothers and sisters who are most vulnerable.
The compassionate and holistic response of Catholic
Charities to the alien, the orphans and widows of our time
echos Pope Francis’s words at a Jesuit refugee center last
September: “Charity that leaves the poor person as he is, is not
sufficient. True mercy, the mercy God gives to us and teaches
us . . .demands that the poor find the way to be poor no longer.”
In addition to alleviating some of the immediate impact of
poverty by providing food, children’s clothing and assistance to
purchase prescription medication and pay utility bills, the
profesional staff at Catholic Charities also works to help the
poor and vulnerable develop skills and access resources which
will allow them to find a way to economic self-sufficiency.
I extend my gratitude to those of you who are volunteers and
benefactors supporting the work of the Church through
Catholic Charities. If you are not yet involved with Catholic
Charities or social outreach at your parish, I ask you to prayerfully consider how you can become involved in compassionately responding to the needs of our neighbors. May Our Lord
Jesus bless us and all those we love and serve and may Mary
Our Mother watch over us always.
Sincerely in Christ, Most Reverend Michael F. Burbidge
MINISTERIO HISPANO – Octubre 26 2014
La imagen contenida en el pasaje citado de la Carta a los Efesios parece hablar sobre todo del
sacramento de la redención como de la realización definitiva del misterio escondido desde los
siglos en Dios. En este mysterium magnum se realiza definitivamente todo aquello de lo que
había tratado la misma Carta a los Efesios en el capítulo primero.
Efectivamente, como recordamos, dice no sólo: "En El (esto es, en Cristo) -Dios- nos eligió antes de la constitución del
mundo para que fuésemos santos e inmaculados ante El..." (Ef 1, 4), sino también: "En El -Cristo- tenemos la redención
por su sangre, la remisión de los pecados, según las riquezas de Su gracia, que superabundantemente derramó sobre
nosotros... (Ef 1, 7-8).
La nueva gratificación sobrenatural del hombre en el "sacramento de la redención" es también una nueva realización del
misterio escondido desde los siglos en Dios, nueva en relación al sacramento de la creación. En este momento la gratificación es, en cierto sentido, una "nueva creación". Pero se diferencia del sacramento de la creación en cuanto que la
gratificación originaria, unida a la creación del hombre, constituía a ese hombre "desde el principio", mediante la gracia,
en el estado de la originaria inocencia y justicia. En cambio, la nueva gratificación del hombre en el sacramento de la
redención le da, sobre todo, la "remisión de los pecados". Sin embargo, también aquí puede "sobreabundar la gracia",
como dice en otra parte San Pablo: "Donde abundó el pecado, sobreabundó la gracia" (Rom 5, 20).
El sacramento de la redención -fruto del amor redentor de Cristo- se convierte basándose en su amor nupcial a la
Iglesia, en una dimensión permanente de la vida de la Iglesia misma, dimensión fundamental y vivificante. Es el
mysterium magnum de Cristo y de la Iglesia: misterio eterno realizado por Cristo, que "se entregó por ella" (Ef 5, 35);
misterio que se realiza continuamente en la Iglesia, porque Cristo "amó a la Iglesia" (Ef 5, 35), uniéndose a ella con
amor indisoluble, tal como se unen los esposos, marido y mujer, en el matrimonio.
De este modo la Iglesia vive del sacramento de la redención, y, a su vez, completa este sacramento como la mujer, en
virtud del amor nupcial, completa al propio marido, lo que ya se puso de relieve, en cierto modo, "al principio", cuando el
hombre halló en la primera mujer "una ayuda semejante a él" (Gén 2, 20). Aunque la analogía de la Carta a los Efesios
no lo precise, sin embargo, podemos añadir que también la Iglesia unida a Cristo, como la mujer con el propio marido,
saca del sacramento de la redención toda su fecundidad y maternidad espiritual. Lo testimonian, de algún modo, las
palabras de la Carta de San Pedro, cuando escribe que hemos sido "engendrados no de semilla corruptible, sino
incorruptible, por la palabra viva y permanente de Dios" (1 Pe 1, 23). Así el misterio escondido desde los siglos en Dios
-misterio que al "principio", en el sacramento de la creación, se convirtió en una realidad visible a través de la unión del
primer hombre y de la primera mujer en la perspectiva del matrimonio-, en el sacramento de la redención se convierte
en una realidad visible en la unión indisoluble de Cristo con la Iglesia, que el autor de la Carta a los Efesios presenta
como la unión nupcial de los esposos marido y mujer. CONTINUAMOS EL SIGUIENTE DOMINGO
