WEEK FIVE - "Love Your Neighbor@Work "

In the Gospel this week, Jesus tells us to love God and neighbor. What does it mean to love

our neighbor in the workplace? 

How does our faith make a difference in how we treat others at work? The "Golden Rule" does not just challenge us to do the "moral" or "right" thing at work, but to do the loving thing—treating others as we would want to be treated. What does this mean when our work neighbors include both our co-workers and competitors, and both customers and those serving us? 

 

See the insert in this week's bulletin, and visit http://www.gospel.link/faithwork-week-5.html for more about this week’s theme:

  • Short videos - “Making a Difference to Others” tells the story of a New York City elevator operator in 60 seconds; “Jesus Worked.” 
  • The Golden Rule at Work - Practical, specific tips for applying the Christian love at work. 
  • Make Me an Instrument of Peace at Work - Pat McHenry Sullivan beautifully adapts the classic Franciscan prayer to the workplace.   
QUESTION OF THE WEEK for Oct. 26th - How can I treat my neighbors at work as I would want to be treated?

All Saints Day

You are invited to bring pictures of your deceased loved ones to be displayed on tables outside the Worship Space before liturgy on All Saints Day, Saturday, November 1st (liturgy will be celebrated at 9:30 am). 

 

Our hope is that this will be a special way to honor and remember your loved ones who are now one with God and the Communion of Saints.

A Prayer for Evangelization Diocese of Richmond - Joy of the Gospel

EVER PRESENT GOD, 

we give You thanks for the gift of Your Son, Jesus.

We thank You for the unity we find in Him.

We ask You to send Your Holy Spirit upon us

...that we might boldly proclaim Your love,

...that we might courageously speak Your truth,

...that we might humbly live as Jesus did,

ever faithful to You, ever joyful in Your service, ever hopeful that Your Kingdom will burst forth in this moment.

Send us valiantly forth with the Good News that in this place, in this parish, Jesus is alive, welcoming the lost and leading us all to lives of merciful compassion!

We ask this through Christ, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit as one God, forever and ever.  Amen.
