In veiled and imaginative language, our scriptures today point toward the future and what will happen to those who have died. The book of Daniel intends to comfort a people suffering a cruel persecution and presents the archangel Michael, guardian of the Jewish people. He will awaken those who sleep in the dust of the earth, some to live forever, others to be an everlasting horror and disgrace. The wise shall shine and the just shall be like stars forever. In a similar vein, Jesus speaks of the Son of Man—a title He used for Himself—coming in the clouds in power and glory with angels who will gather the elect. Both readings call us to live in hope, assuring us that at the end God will be there. We believe the One who comes, the Son of Man, is the Lord Jesus Christ. As the liturgical year nears its end, Hebrews holds up one last time Jesus the high priest whose sacrifice has won us forgiveness. Whenever the end time comes, Christ will be there, ushering in a new age. Do you live in hope, trusting in the One who comes with justice, mercy and forgiveness?

THANKSGIVING DAY MASS—Everyone is welcome on Thanksgiving morning, Thursday, November 26th at 9:00 am. We invite all families of the parish to make every effort to attend as we offer thanks to God for the many blessings and graces we receive. Bring to this Mass the bread and wine for your Thanksgiving meal; to be blessed at the Mass and shared with family and friends in your home.

He has given His angels charge over you to guard you in all your ways. Let them thank the Lord for His mercy: for His wonderful works. Let them give thanks and say the Lord has done great things for them. O Lord, you sent your only Son and grace of your Spirit, to serve us, assigning the angels as our guardians and teachers.
—Saint Bernard
