_____

Behold, O kind and gentle Jesus, I kneel before you and pray that you would impress upon my heart the virtues of faith, hope and charity, with true repentance for my sins and a firm purpose of amendment.

I meditate on your five precious wounds, having in mind the words which David spoke in prophecy: "They have pierced my hands and my feet.

I can count all my bones"

{Psalm 22}

The 17th Annual Buy Nothing Day Winter Coat exchange will be held on Friday November 29 at 14 sites around Rhode Island beginning at 9 AM.     Throughout November many of the November 29 distribution sites and numerous other places in our communities are collecting winter coats.  These coats, and coats donated at the various distribution sites on November 29 will be available for any Rhode Islanders who need a winter coat to pick up on November 29.  

 Buy Nothing Day Winter Coat Exchange organizer Greg Gerritt Gerritt commented  " While the poverty and inequality that drives the need to redistribute winter coats in the community is concentrated in the urban core, the availability of coats has a reverse distribution, that has become more apparent as we develop a larger and larger number of sites.  We are therefore encouraging Rhode Islanders looking for winter coats to visit sites other than the Providence distribution on the State House Lawn. "

The Buy Nothing Day Winter Coat Exchange is a partnership between people and organizations through out the state.  Many of the sites are organized by local churches or service organizations, and about half the sites are YMCA of Greater Providence facilities, a partnership that continues to strengthen over time.  

The Buy Nothing Day Winter Coat Exchange began in Rhode Island in 1997 as an effort to point out the dangers of consumerism for our communities and the planet while providing something useful for the community.  The hundreds of volunteers participating in the event each year continue in that spirit, to serve both our community and to emphasize the policy choices necessary to create a healthier community.  A complete list of the sites participating is available at http://prosperityforri.com/2013-bnd-sites-in-rhode-island/

Pray for Peace

We are all called as a community of
faith to pray for PEACE.

Let us renew our efforts 
especially at this time when there is so much unrest in all areas of our world.

Let us turn to Jesus - The Prince of Peace - who is urging us through the Spirit to spread his message by our actions!
________________________


The 

KINSHIP of Jesus

Whenever this feast rolls around, I am tempted to downplay this medieval image of Jesus and look beyond to the First Sunday of Advent.  


Why do we have a feast of Jesus as king?  This was a title that Jesus specifically rejected.  I don't have a satisfactory answer for this question, but I would like to propose that we drop the "g" in kingship and instead focus on the Kinship of Jesus.  


Kinship is a radical notion in a world that has always taken pride in the uniqueness of one's tribe, nation, religion or empire.  

The truth is that we are all kin – we are all related.  Our very DNA reveals this; our kinship extends beyond our link to other humans to include all life in all its wondrous forms. 


The readings confirm this approach.  Ezekiel tells us that God is a Shepherd who seeks out the lost and heals the sick and injured.  


Do we see ourselves (all of us) in those suffering sheep?  In the Gospel Matthew makes clear the criteria to be recognized by this Shepherd.  


As wounded healers we reach out to the hungry and thirsty, the stranger and the naked, the ill and imprisoned.  


So let us celebrate with great joy and a deepening awareness that all life has poured forth from our Source – our all in all- and participate with Jesus in our Kinship with all life.  


For the ever-creative and bounteous Source of life is LOVE.  


It is believing in this reality that sustains us and beckons us to be one in 
That Love without
judgment or fear

How worthy is the Lamb who was slain, to receive power and divinity, and wisdom and strength and honor.

To him belong glory and power
For ever and ever.

Revelation 5:12,; 1-6 


THE ORDER OF MASS


At the Eucharist, the Church comes together to hear the Word of the Lord, to pray for the world's needs, to offer the sacrifice of the Cross in praise and thanks to God, to receive Christ Jesu in Communion, and then to be sent forth in the Spirit as disciples of the Gospel.

Through the experience of these sacred mysteries in the liturgy, the "summit toward which the activity of the Church is directed,"the people of God are renewed and given new strength to live out the Christian faith daily (Sacrosanctum Concilium, no. 10).

In the Order of Mass, song numbers given in Today's Missal match their accompaniment numbers in
The Accompaniment Books.

Saint Michael, the Archangel, defend us in battle, be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him, we humble pray; and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God, thrust into Hell Satan and the other evil spirits who prowl about the world for the ruin of souls.
Amen

ANIMA CHRISTI
 


Soul of Christ, sanctify me;
Body of Christ, save me;
Blood of Christ, inebriate me;
Water from the side of Christ, wash me;
Passion of Christ, strengthen me;
O good Jesus, hear me;
Within your wounds hide me;
Separated from you, 
let me never be;
From the evil one protect me;
At the hour of my death, call me;
And close to you bid me;
That with your saints,
I may be,
Praising you forever and ever.
Amen.
