We bow when we want to honor someone. Sometimes, we bow in submission before forces beyond our control. And we may even bow before an audience to receive their applause and recognition. Our lowered head or our bended bodies make a bow for many reasons. And when we bow our heads or bodies at Mass, we do so not surprisingly for different reasons as well. In the Creed, we bow at the words . . . and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary, and became man. We humbly and gratefully bow to the Eternal Word who humbled himself to come among us as one like us in all things but sin. We bow before receiving Holy Communion, a gesture of deep reverence before the mystery of the Body and Blood of the Lord. At the end of Mass before a solemn blessing, we bow our heads when we hear, Bow down for the blessing. In that moment, we submit ourselves to all the good and gracious gifts God wants to give us. Reverence, submission, and gratitude all this in a simple gesture.
LOVE GOD As we near the end of the liturgical year we listen to Gospel readings from the final stage of Jesus ministryhis teaching in Jerusalem. This Sunday Jesus is in conversation with one of the scribes of the temple. In a rare occurrence Jesus and the scribe agree on the two greatest commandments to love God with all your being and to love your neighbor as yourself. In todays selection from Deuteronomy Moses gives this teaching to the Israelites as the core of their life of faith and prayer, and Psalm 18 echoes this prayer with the words, I love you, O LORD, my strength (Psalm 18:2). Jews and Christians agree that our greatest responsibility is to love the one and only God, and that we cannot claim to love God without loving our neighbor as ourselves. Copyright J. S. Paluch Co.

ALBERTS RECYCLES Paper Recycling: There are four bins in the carnival parking lot behind the school for people to place paper in for recycling. Please use them to discard your unwanted newspapers and magazines. All of the money raised by this program goes to help pay for school improvements. Box Tops for Education: These boxtops can be found on numerous grocery items. At any given time, everyone has several dollars worth in their kitchen cabinets, desks, etc. Mrs. Porfirio will be having another contest (date to be announced) so make sure to save your BOX TOPS, each one is worth a dime, what a deal! Ink Cartridges: We are still collecting used ink cartridges from copiers and printers as well as used cell phones, etc. (we do not collect powder toners). There is currently a cartridge mountain that needs to be sorted, packed, etc. If you need to earn your parish points, this is a job that can be done during the daytime at school. Please contact Mrs. Porfirio for more information. Manna: Manna is a wonderful fundraiser that benefits our school. Gift cards!!! Thats what the program is all about. The Manna Program purchases gift cards at a discount and resells them to you at face value, and there is no service charge to you. If you want to purchase a $25.00 gift card for Kohls you pay $25.00, thats it. Instead of buying your cards at the store, simply order them from the school. The gift cards are preordered and pre-paid and your order is usually filled within the week. Orders need to be placed on Mondays by Noon. School families can send their order to school, and parishioners can drop their orders off at the Business Office.

Thank You to all parishioners who purchased Pope John Pauls II favorite pastries kremowki. Profit ($7,271.81) will be used for the renovation of our Parish Chapel.
