32nd Sunday in Ordinary Time - November 10, 2019 - Year C


Between fear and illusions, only one hope 

  

 

Gospel: Luke 20:27-38 The Sadducees challenge Jesus about his teaching on

                                                the afterlife.

This is not something that can be grasped or assumed, but comes from God's judgment of one's worthiness; this is an action of God. to attain to the coming age Luke defines the "coming age" in terms of the resurrection life. And to the resurrection of the dead neither marry nor are given in marriage. The institution of marriage will not exist in heaven. In this world people marry in order to continue their species but after the resurrection there will be no more marriage be- cause people will not die anymore. However, Jesus didn't mean that people will not recognize their earthly spouses when they get to heaven. He was trying to tell them heaven is not an ex- tension of life as we know it here on earth. They can no longer die, for they are like angels; Like the angels, the saints will be clothed in glory and immortality, but, unlike the angels, they will ultimately live in resurrected bodies and not as disembodied spirits. They are thus equal in some respects, but not the same in all respects, and they are the children of God because they are the ones who will rise. Belief in the general resurrection is central to the Christian faith. The Apostles' Creed and the Nicene Creed both state that our physical bodies will be raised again to enjoy eternal life.

 

"The Christian hope is the resurrection of the dead; all that we are, we are because we believe in the resurrection." (Tertullian)

 

 

 

 

 

We cannot imagine how life will be with God, but faith gives us the certainty that, after death, the person continues to live.

OUR SCHOOL:       
           

11/03/2019

    …. We had a wonderful mass for All Saints Day, hosted by our 5th graders and featuring our Kindergarten "saints".  This long standing tradition is always such a treat for all of us.  Hearing the students remember facts about their saint from when they were in Kindergarten is very heartwarming.  Our teachers had a Professional Development Day on 11/04 so our students enjoyed a nice three day weekend!  We ended the week with our monthly Mission Dress Down.  This month, our Kindergarten is hosting our Catholic Identity and we are sending our donation to "No Kind Hungry". 

   As always, we invite you to stop by any time to visit our school and see our students in action.  Our school office hours are 7:40 am until 3:40 pm Monday through Friday.  You can also visit our website for more information about school activities and events at www.saintjohnsschool.org .  Join us daily for our LiveStream broadcast of our morning and afternoon prayers daily at 8:05 am and 2:50 pm.  Find the link on our website!    

 "The Mission of St. John the Evangelist Parish School is to be a respectful Catholic environment
where the invitation to become citizen disciples of Jesus Christ is manifested by its learners
and teachers.  Animated by a spirit of trust and cooperation, we are dedicated to religious formation,
academic achievement and appropriate social development. 
In all we do, we celebrate the unique
gift of God in each person and strive to capture the dream of God for all who
make up the community
of  St. John's School."

                                  
  




 

 

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came to be through him, and without him nothing came to be. What came to be through him was life, and this life was the light of the human race; the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” (St. John the Evangelist, Apostle; John 1:1-5).
