>> a reading from the book of wisdom.

Before the lord, the whole universe is as a grain from a balance or a drop of morning to come down upon the earth.

But you have mercy on all, because you can do all things and you overlook people since that they may repent.

For you love all things that are and loathe nothing that you have made, for what you hated, you would not have fashioned.

And how could a thing remain unless you willed it.

Or be preserved, had it not been called forth by you.

But you sterile things because they are yours, o lord and lover of souls, for your imperishable spirit is in all things.

Therefore you rebuke offenders little by little worn them and remind them of the sins they are committing, that they may abandon their wickedness and believe in you, o lord.

The word of the lord.

>> thanks be to god.

The lord is good to all and compassionate toward all his works.

>> i will praise your name for ever, my king and my god.

>> let all your works give you thanks o lord, and let your them discourse of the glory of your kingdom and speak of your might.

>> i will praise your name forever my king and my god.

>> the lord is faithful in all his words and holy in all his works.

The lord lifts up all who are falling and raises up all who are bowed down.

>> i will praise your name forever my king and my god.

>> a reading from the second letter of st.

Paul to that the slobrothers and sisters, we always pray for you that our god may make you worthy of his calling.

And powerfully bring to fulfillment every good purpose and every effort of faith that the name of our lord jesus christ may be glorified in you, and you and him.

In accord with the grace of our god and lord jesus christ.

We ask you, brothers and sisters, with regard to the coming of our lord jesus christ and our assembling with him, not to be shaken out of your mind suddenly or to be alarmed either by a spirit or by an oral statement, or by a letter allegedly from us to the effect that the day of the lord is at hand.

The word of the lord.

>> thanks be to god.

>> alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.

Reading from the holy gospel according to luke.

>> glory to your lord.

>> and at that time jesus came to jericho and intended to pass through the town.

Now a man there named zacchaeus who was a chief tax collector and also a wealthy man was seeking to see who jesus was but he could not see him because of the crowd.

For he was too short in stature.

So he ran ahead and climbed a sycamore tree in order to see jesus who was about to pass that way.

When he reached the place, jesus looked up and said, zacchaeus come down quickly for today i must stay at your house.

And he came down quickly and received him with joy.

When they all saw this they began to grumble saying he has gone to stay at the house of a sinner.

But zacchaeus stood there and said to the lord, behold half of my possessions lord i shall give to the poor and if i have extorted anything from anyone at shell repay it four times over.

And jesus said to him, today salvation has come to this house because this man to is a descendent of abraham.

For the son of man has come to seek and to save what was lost.

The gospel of the lord.

>> praise to you lord jesus christ.

>> i am sure that all of us have experienced the death of a close loved one and have felt a natural sadness that losing our loved one brings.

As believers in jesus christ we hold on to hope even as we grieve.

As christians we hope in eternal life because in jesus christ salvation has visited our house.

Praying for our deceased loved ones and remembering them is a good and holy act.

This response to a deep need in all of us to grieve and mourn the loss of a loved one.

Eventually, you do get use to missing someone but you never really get over it.

Because of the sadness and feeling of loss, we dedicate this whole month of november two remembering our deceased family and friends.

We respect the name, the person the mortal remains and the memory of those who have died.

As we commemorate our faithful departed, we also need to reflect upon the importance of hope.

In christian life.

And death.

The first christians depicted hope as an anchor as if life had cast the anchor into the river of heaven.

All of us journeying towards this river were clinging to the anchors rope.

This is a beautiful image of hope.

To have the heart anchored there where our ancestors are.

Where the saints are, where jesus is, where god is.

This is the hope that does not disappoint.

Praying for the dead is an act of hope.

In eternal life.

There are moments of difficulty in life but with hope, the soul moves forward and looks towards that which awaits us.

In hope in our gospel today.

Hope got him to climb the sycamore tree.

Hoping to see jesus.

Jesus fulfilled his hopefulness by visiting his house and bringing him the gift of salvation.

Jesus fulfills our hope as well.

Jesus has invited us and saved us.

Through our baptism into the lord jesus, we are fellow citizens of this church.

Established by jesus christ.

Our making our way to heaven we enter into this church, the body of christ so that the holy spirit may live in us.

Jesus prays jesus calls jesus chooses.

Jesus sends his disciples out and heals the crowds.

Jesus saves us through his death and resurrection.

Inside this church family, jesus who is the center and cornerstone does all the work.

Jesus wants everyone inside this church he founded to bring us all to heaven.

We can stand at the door of the church and not come in.

We must enter into this vessel of salvation that jesus founded.

We must enter into the church, not as strangers passing through.

But rather as brothers and sisters with the rights of being a citizen of heaven where we have roots, where we are anchored.

The person who stands at the doorway of the church looking in but not entering has no sense of the full love and each and every person.

It's jesus who prays and heals and this he does for each one of us.

Showering us in his love and forgiveness and for giving us the hope and promise of eternal life.

Jesus prayer can heal us all and bring us to heaven.

Let us come down out of our trees and welcome jesus into our hearts and our homes.

As human beings, it is natural for us to fear death.

To rebel against its apparent finality.

But we know that we cannot deny death.

We will all have our own sunset of life.

When we come to the end of our past, we can ask ourselves how will my life end.

Our faith teaches us that the fear of death is lightened by a great hope, the hope of eternity.

Which gives our lives the fullest meaning.

The god who is love offers us the promise of eternal life through the death and resurrection of his son.

In christ death no longer appears as an abyss of emptiness.

But rather a path to life which will never end.

So many times in the gospel jesus confirms the reality of life after death.

Including upon the cross on calvary when he told the thief crucify on his right.

Truly, i tell you today you will be with me in paradise.

Jesus christ is the resurrection and a life.

Whoever believes in him will never die.

This promise makes every day a day of hope and a day of joy.

Even as we with heavy hearts pray for and remember our loved ones who have died.

We remember the sunset of many brothers and sisters who have preceded us.

We think of our own sunset which will one day come.

But as we think of the reality of death, let us be people of hope.

Like zacchaeus, people of hope and jesus christ who came to seek and to save the lost who has brought salvation to our house.

>> i believe in one god the father almighty maker of heaven and earth, of all things visible and invisible.

I believe in one lord jesus christ the only begotten son of god born of the father before all ages.

God from god, light from light, true god from true god, begotten not made, consubstantial with the father through him all things were made.

For us men and our salvation he came down from heaven, and by the holy spirit was incarnate of the virgin mary and became man.

For our sake he was crucified under pontius pilate, he suffered death and was buried, and rose again and on the third day in accordance with the scriptures.

He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the father.

He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead in his kingdom will have no end.

I believe in the holy spirit, the lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the father and the son, who was the father and the son is adored and glorified, who has spoken through the prophets.

I believe in one holy catholic and apostolic church, i confess one baptism for the forgiveness of sins and i look forward to the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come.


>> now let us turn to our loving god with these prayerful petitions.

>> that through the power of the holy spirit, the lord will guide pope francis, bishop donald and all who minister to the faith lives of others to inspire the souls in their trust to remain faithful to christ.

We pray to the lord.

For those who lead and govern, that they will do so with mercy, wisdom and strength of character roster service.

We pray to the lord.

>> lord hear our prayer.

>> in our relationship with god, for the humbleness to invite him into our lives and to remain faithful to christ until he comes again.

We pray to the lord.

>> lord hear our prayer.

Indeed for your face all lord life has changed, not ended.

Blessed is he who comes in the name of the lord.

Make holy therefore these gifts we pray.

By sending down your spirit upon them like they do fall.

So that they may become for us, the body and blood of our lord, jesus christ.

At the time he was betrayed and entered willingly into his passion.

He took pride in giving thanks, broke it.

He gave it to his disciples saying, take this all of you and eat of it.

For this is my body which will be given up for you.

>> in a similar way whenwas and that he took the chalice and once more giving thanks gave it to his disciples saying take this, all of you and drink from it.

For this is the chalice of my blood.

The blood of the new and eternal covenant.

Which will be poured out for you and for many.

For the forgiveness of sins.

Do this in memory of me.

>> the mystery of faith.

We proclaim your death the lord and professor resurrection.

Until you come again.

>> therefore as we celebrate the memorial of his death and resurrection, we offer you lord the bread of life and the chalice of salvation.

Giving thanks that you have held is worthy to be in your presence and minister to you.

Humbly, we pray that partaking of the body and blood of christ we may be gathered into one by the holy spirit.

Remember lord, your church spread throughout the world.

Bring her to the fullness of charity.

Together with francis our pope and donald our bishop.

All the clergy.
