After breakfast we depart Jerusalem and may have the opportunity to visit
Jericho, the world's oldest city. From the excavated tel on top the ruins of
ancient Jericho we view the lush green Jordan Valley, Elisha's sprint and
Quarantal, the Mount of Temptation.  We travel along the Jordan River where
we renew our baptismal promises before continuing on to Bet Shean where King
Saul and his sons were pinned to the walls.  It became the Decapolis Capital
visited by Jesus known as Scythopolis.  We see the ancient theatre, Circus
Maximus and Cardo Maximo.  In the afternoon we arrive in Tiberias where we
take a relaxing boat ride across the lovely Sea of Galilee to Capernaum,
then visit Tabgha and the Church of St. Peter's Primacy, where Jesus
appeared after the Resurrection.

I'm leading a Pilgrimage to the Holy Land and will return late on Thursday,
15 November.  Margie, our Pastoral Minister will be sending Morning Prayer
in my absence. No prayer intentions will be accepted at this time, since
Morning Prayer has already been prepared. Be assured that we'll remember
your intentions in our prayers, during our Daily Masses and in the many
important Churches we'll visit.  Please "Subscribe" and "Unsubscribe" in the
way described at the bottom of this e-mail, since I won't have regular
Internet access in the Holy Land.

St. Martin of Tours (316?-397)
Martin was a conscientious objector who wanted to be a monk; a monk who was
maneuvered into being a bishop; a bishop who fought paganism as well as
pleading for mercy for heretics.  To learn more about Martin, click the link

One of the brothers, speaking for the others, said: "What do you expect to
achieve by questioning us? We are ready to die rather than break the laws of
our ancestors."  ~ 2nd Macabbees 7:1-2, 9-14
"May the Lord direct your hearts to the love of God and to the endurance of
Christ."  ~Thessalonians 2:16-3:5
"He is not the God of the dead, but of the living, for to him all are
alive." ~ Luke 20:27-38

The brothers in our first reading today are willing to be tortured and die,
rather than transgress the laws of their ancestors. Some Sadducees in the
Gospel deny the resurrection of the dead and try to stump Jesus with a
complicated case. Jesus cuts to the core as he says, "He is not the God of
the dead, but of the living, for to him all are alive."

I pray that I may have reverence of God's law.  I pray that I may have the
courage to make decisions based upon the law of God.
.=: 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!

Newly written each day by Father Pat Umberger.  Morning Prayer may not be 
published by others, but is a good resource for preachers and those who attend 
Daily Mass, and those who would like to keep up with the Lectionary Readings 
and are not always able to attend Daily Mass.
