This weekend is packed with good opportunities for reflection!! God is so good!! All the time God is good! We have the Gospel readings from Matthew5:1-12a which is the Beatitudes( or Sermon on the mount) and it falls on ALL SAINTS DAY!!
There are so many lessons for us to ponder in our hearts.
Jesus is always showing us the way to a good and holy life so we can join the Saints in heaven. First, lets look at the beatitudes.
November 1 is also ALL SAINTS DAY!! We lean on the SAINTS as role models of faith and prayer partners. This week's prayer is the Litany of Saints. We will ask for the Saints to pray for us especially for wisdom in the upcoming election! You and I are called to be saints. We ask God's help with this goal.

This week we are focused on the message of the "Beatitudes". Jesus was teaching people how to live a holy and happy life. Much of this message focused on thinking of others, relying on God and not other people and things and standing up for what we know is right respectfully.
Here is a short video that uses movie clips and some humor to try and get you to think more about what Jesus wants you to know about living a truly happy life.
