     From Father Pat Umberger
W E ' R E    I N    I T A L Y
We'll be on Pilgrimage to Italy from 10-22 November.  We'll keep you and
Your intentions in our prayers. Individual prayer intentions will not be
Included with Morning Prayer during these days, since Morning Prayer has
Already been prepared.  It will be sent by Margie, our pastoral minister.
If you need to "subscribe" or "unsubscribe" during this time, please do so
In the way described at the bottom of each morning prayer.  I won't be able
To do this for you during our time in Italy.  If you'd like to send a
Message to Margie, DO NOT HIT REPLY AND SEND THIS MESSAGE.  That message
Will not reach Margie.  Her e-mail address is:  marge@xxxxxxxxxx
Today we drive southeast, through the Italian countryside to Mt. St. Angelo
And visit the Grotto of St. Michael the Archangel. We celebrate Mass at 8
A.m. In San Legoniziano Basilica in Lanciano. We proceed to San Giovanni
Rotondo, the home of St. Padre Pio.

St. Gertrude (1256?-1302)
Gertrude, a Benedictine nun in Helfta (Saxony), was one of the great mystics
Of the 13th century. Together with her friend and teacher St. Mechtild, she
Practiced a spirituality called "nuptial mysticism," that is, she came to
See herself as the bride of Christ. Her spiritual life was a deep personal
Union with Jesus and his Sacred Heart, leading her into the very life of the
Trinity.  For more, follow the link below:
Saint of the Day:

For this is love, that we walk according to his commandments; this is the
Commandment, as you heard from the beginning,
In which you should walk. ~2 John 4-9
On that day, someone who is on the housetop and whose belongings are in the
House must not go down to get them, and likewise one in the field must not
Return to what was left behind. ~Luke 17:26-37
.=: M E D I T A T I O N    F O R    T H E    D A Y :=.
As we draw closer to the end of the Church year we meditate on the end of
Time. Many worry about the end of time or the end of their lives.  Still,
For us, there is nothing to worry about if we "walk according to his
Commandments." We can turn to the Lord with all our hearts, seek
Reconciliation if we're in need of it, and then live each day of our lives
With love, as if it were our last.
.=: P R A Y E R    F O R    T H E    D A Y :=.
I pray that I may not worry about the end of time or the end of my life.  I
Pray that I may wait in joyful hope for the coming of Christ as I live each
Day with love, as if it is my last.
.=: W E     P R A Y  :=.
We pray for unity in our country and that we may build a Culture of Life. We
Pray for the safety of our troops, their safe return and their families at
Home.  We pray for a deep and profound respect for life, and for the courage
And willingness to stand up for life. We pray for one another, for those who
Have asked our prayers and for those who need our prayers the most. Have a
Good day!
May God Bless you and those you love, and keep you safe!
Father Pat
