Monagea Parish Mission
 

On this week's programme Lorraine speaks with Geraldine Mulqueen and Mary Roche, members of the Monagea Parish Pastoral Council, about their upcoming Parish Mission which will be led by the Redemptorist. Geraldine told us a little bit about the history of Monagea Church and some of the holy places in Monagea. Mary informed us about the mission which will be taking place from Sunday, November 17th to Friday, November 22nd. The parish mission is a time for the community to gather together and reflect on their faith. This is particularly appropriate as the Mission will take place just before the close of the Year of Faith.
The mission caters for all age groups with Morning Masses celebrated at 7.00am and 9.30am from Monday, November 18th to Friday, November 22nd. Evening Session takes place at 7.30pm (does notinclude Mass) from Sunday to Friday. The themes for each evening are: Sunday: A Celebration of Community; Monday: The Healing Power of God; Tuesday: Prayer and Faith in God’s Word; Wednesday: Reconciliation; Thursday: Life and the Sacraments; and Friday: We are God’s Family.
On Sunday, November 17ththe 10.00am Mass will be followed by a Blessing of Babies and Young Children. On Thursday, November 21st Mass of Anointing for the Sick and Elderly will be celebrated at 12noon followed by Refreshments in the Parish Hall. All are very welcome.

Gospel - Luke 20:27-38

 
There came to him some Sadducees, those who say that there is no resurrection, and they asked him a question, saying, "Teacher, Moses wrote for us that if a man's brother dies, having a wife but no children, the man must take the wife and raise up children for his brother. Now there were seven brothers; the first took a wife, and died without children; and the second and the third took her, and likewise all seven left no children and died. Afterward the woman also died. In the resurrection, therefore, whose wife will the woman be? For the seven had her as wife."

And Jesus said to them, "The sons of this age marry and are given in marriage; but those who are accounted worthy to attain to that age and to the resurrection from the dead neither marry nor are given in marriage, for they cannot die any more, because they are equal to angels and are sons of God, being sons of the resurrection. But that the dead are raised, even Moses showed, in the passage about the bush, where he calls the Lord the God of Abraham and the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob. Now he is not God of the dead, but of the living; for all live to him."
