October: Respect Life Month

To understand more fully how to defend and protect human life, we must first consider who we are, at the deepest level. God creates us in his image and likeness, which means we are made to be in loving relationship with him. The essence of our identity and worth, the source of our dignity, is that we are loved by God: “We are not the sum of our weaknesses and failures; we are the sum of the Father’s love for us and our real capacity to become the image of his Son” (Pope John Paul II).

“Read and Treat” at Cachagua Community Park

Literacy helps children succeed! Join the Christ Child Society of Monterey Bay at “Read and Treat” — a great opportunity for volunteers to read Halloween books to children in the park, for families to gather around stories and share treats, and for members of the community to donate new or gently used children’s books destined for local children’s personal libraries. “Read and Treat” is a part of Make a Difference Day, the TEGNA/Points of Light Foundation national day of volunteering in which thousands of Americans participate across the country each year. Contact Anne Kelley at 206-949-2944, email annemurkel@hotmail.com or visit facebook@christchildmonterey for more information or to participate!

El Mes de Octubre—El Respeto a la Vida
Edificar una Cultura de Vida: Para poder defender y proteger la vida humana, primero debemos considerar quienes somos nosotros, en lo mas profundo. Dios nos crea a su imagen y semejanza, lo cual significa que estamos hechos para estar en relación amorosa con Dios…Estamos llamados a la intimidad divina, a la verdadera comunión con Dios, y podemos crecer en esta cercanía con El con la oración diaria, la lectura de las Escrituras y la participación frecuente en los sacramentos…

Al encontrarnos con Cristo, sentimos su amor y pro- fundizamos nuestra relación con él, somos mas conscientes de nuestra propia valía y la de los demás…Nuestra vida se ve a menudo cambiada por el testimonio de otros; así también, la vida de otros puede verse cambiada por nuestro testimonio y amistad auténtica con ellos. —Conferencia de los Obispos de los EE.UU.

Youth Corner

The powerful try to entrap Jesus by their words. They fail. He recognizes their hypocrisy. May we, too, always recognize hypocrisy and be guided by the truth and joy of God’s love. Let’s remember that God makes all things possible!
