>> amen.

>> a reading from the book of maccabees.

It happened that seven brothers with their mother were arrested and tortured with whips and scorches by the king.

To force them to eat pork in violation of god's law.

One of the brothers speaking for the others said, what do you expect to achieve by questioning us?

We are all ready to die rather than transgress the laws of our ancestors.

At the point of death he said, you accursed fiend, you are depriving us on this present life.

But the king of the world will raise us up to live again forever.

It is for his laws that we are dying.

After him, the third suffered their cruel sport.

He put out his tongue at once when told to do so and bravely held out his hands as he spoke these noble words, it was from heaven that i received these, for the sake of his laws i disdain them, from him i hope to receive them again.

Even the king and his attendants marveled at the young man's courage, because he regarded his sufferings as nothing.

After he had died, they tortured and maltreated the said, it is my choice to die at the hands of men with the hope god gives of being raised up by him.

But for you, there will be no resurrection to life.

The word of the lord.

>> thanks be to god.

>> lord, when your glory appears, my joy will be full.

>> lord, when your glory appears, my joy will be full.

>> here oh lord, a just suit, attend to my outcry, hearken to my prayer from lips without deceit.

>> lord, when your glory appears, my joy will be full.

>> steps have been steadfast in your paths, my feet have not faltered, i call upon you for you will answer me oh god.

Incline your ear to me, hear my appears, my joy will be full.

>> keep me as the apple of your eye, hide me in the shadow of your wings.

But i in justice shall behold your face, on waking i shall be content in your presence.

Lord when your glory appears, my joy will be full.

>> a reading from the second letter of st.

Paul to the thessalonians.

Brothers and sisters, may our lord jesus christ himself and god our father, who has loved us and give us everlasting encouragement and good hope through his grace.

Encourage your hearts and strengthen them in every good deed and word.

Finally, brothers and sisters, pray for us.

So that the word of the lord may speed forward and be glorified as it did among you.

And that we may be delivered from perverse and wicked people for not all have faith.

But the lord is faithful, he will strengthen you and guard you from the evil one.

We are confident of you and the lord that what we instruct you, you are doing and will continue to do.

May the lord direct your hearts to the love of god and to the endurance of christ.

The word of the lord.

>> thanks be to god.

>> alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.

>> jesus christ is the firstborn of the dead, to him be glory and power forever and ever.

>> alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.

>> rating from the holy gospel according to luke.

>> glory to you oh lord.

>> some sadducees, those who deny that there is a resurrection came forward.

Jesus said to them, the children of this age marry and remarry, but those who are deemed worthy to attain to the coming agent to the resurrection of the dead neither marry nor are given in marriage.

They can no longer die, for they are like angels, and they are the children of god because they are the ones who will rise.

That the dead will rise even moses made known in the passage about the bush, when he called out lord, the god of abraham, the god of isaac and the god of jacob.

He is not god of the dead, but of the living for to him all are alive.

The gospel of the lord.

>> praise to you, lord jesus christ.

>> this last thursday evening, i returned from the wonderful country of israel, the holy land.

Having hosted a pilgrimage of 35 people, a wonderful time, my third time being there and such a sacred wonderful experience.

Especially in the midst of perfectly clear days and 80 degrees.

A little traumatic to come back to as cold as it is here.

Good to be home.

Thanks to father bart timmerman for presiding at mass on as always to be with you and as i promised before i left, i very specially pray for all of you as we celebrated mass in all of these sacred sacred places throughout the holy land and there was a great spiritual connection in that place.

It was benjamin franklin who once said there's nothing certain in this world but death and taxes.

Nothing certain except for death and taxes.

We might add that there are two subjects that may be can cause lots of anxiety and frustration in our lives.

We can easily talk about the weather, we talk about the sports, talk about politics that not these that have the same kind of impact a lot of us don't like to talk about death.

Maybe taxes always can be there.

But the secret to being prepared for both the taxes we are obliged to be a part of and death itself which is a reality is that we do take time to prepare ourselves.

So on this 32nd sunday of ordinary time, is that the church invites us to start moving our focus to the end times, the days of blessed things as it is called for death and resurrection.

Heaven and hell.

The readings invite us to focus on that reality.

The gift of our god braced to us in the midst of our continued preparation for death itself and for living our faith each and every day.

In the first reading we are taken back to about 175 years before christ was born and there was a greek ruler by the name of antiochus the fourth.

He decided to create a very unified religion in his kingdom.

That unified religion was the mandate that everyone had to worship the greek gods and goddesses.

So for the jewish people caught up in that victim is that it was it became a crime for them to practice their faith.

That the scriptures were often burned, that the dietary laws could be followed and very strict.

Again, trying to mold people to following and adoring these greek gods and goddesses of mythology many times away.

The first reading references how terrible that time was but again the voice was consistent through all of the hebrew scriptures, one that encourages to stay connected with god.

In the source of life and the god who also put in the gospel that jesus said and response to challenges of by the sadducees of the leadership of the jewish people religion that to stay focused on the truth of who our god is.

The focus being that as was said to the israelites and in the first reading and certainly throughout that when we believe in our faith to god, we will rise on the last day.

It's a power for messaging encouragement for them but also for all of us.

Again the first reading, prepared us to listen to this little back and forth between the sadducees and jesus challenged him about marriage laws and the larger longer gospel that we didn't have time to read here on television this morning but didn't really believe in life after death.

They tried to embarrass jesus and really on insoluble question and situation as they had done other times.

So as we are invited to scripture and these days when we talk to the end of the church here in a few weeks that get our attention is inviting us to stay focused on jesus christ.

To reflect on his promise of resurrection that the life that he offers to us and that whole life is a perfect union with god.

The fullness of life is there for us.

We are on this journey every single day.

When you and i take our last breath in this world that is our faith that gives us that hope that our lives will only be changed and not ended.

So for us as people of faith, of our faith and trust in god, it is just enough to know that our lives are in god's hands.

Heaven is beyond our imagination, we have hints about it but to be on our imagination so the journey is rather to try and imagine having being at a different level of this life or different kinds of things many times is to keep focused on our faith and putting our lives and our journey in god's hands.

We have people of hope in the midst of the truth and as brent franklin said that death is a reality.

Taxes to but as people of faith we are more concerned with that.

The truth being that because of jesus christ, that test does not have the final say for us.

Again, god is what life as was jesus was quoting in the gospel.

So the last word is all about life.

How you and i allow ourselves to be guided by christ to grow in christ and to give.

As christ.

Of being great people of compassion and hope to all.

Knowing that the lord is journeying with us.

>> so we profess our faith.

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 for 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 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 and 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 with 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, the life of the world to come.


>> let us humbly now bring our concerns and needs to god this day.

>> that's god's spirit of wisdom who will guide all who serve as ministers of faith including pope francis and bishop donald.

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

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

Do this in memory of me.
