354 Holy Hours were kept before the Blessed Sacrament this past week. We
have three vacant hours: Sunday 5-6am, Tuesday 4-5am and Wednesday 4-
5pm. On November 1 our parish began its 57 year of Perpetual Eucharistic
Adoration. All that can be said is: Thank you, God, and thank you to all of
our committed adorers both living and deceased. Daytime, nighttime and
those tough hours….during the night…Thank you Fr. David Majikas, Pastor and Fr.
Browne our Spiritual Advisor….Both of whom are nighttime adorers that work the
next day, as many night adorers do. May Adoration never cease, especially at St.
Augustine Church.
Thirty-First Sunday in Ordinary Time
In today’s gospel, Jesus tells us that we are “not far from the Kingdom of God” when we love
our neighbor as ourselves. Our closest neighbor is probably right in our own homes. Often it is
easier to be kind to a stranger than it is to be civil to a family member with whom we have
disagreed. The Kingdom of God is closer when we love on another as Jesus loves us.
