Sunday, November 26 marks the last week of the Christian Year; the next week we move into Advent. November 26 is Reign of Christ or Christ the King Sunday. It is a good time to look back on Year A and think of all the times Christ was present among us - in the face of the hungry, the thirsty, the stranger, the naked, the sick person or the one in prison. Just as the disciples wondered, "What will it be like when Christ returns again and the Reign of Christ on earth is a reality?" so we too wonder what it will be like. From Seasons of the Spirit.

Remembering is our responsibility, O God. We remember women and men of the armed forces who suffer trauma and disabilities from war. We remember the families of military personnel who wait, and who deal with the effects of war on their loved ones. We remember civilians who suffer and die in the midst of conflict. We remember those who have lost loved ones, for whom the pain of loss will not go away. ~ excerpt from Remembrance / Veteran's Sunday Pastoral Prayers to Share, Year A by David Sparks

                   


 

This Sunday we remember those whose perishable body put on imperishability, and whose mortal body put on immortality this past year, "Death has been swallowed up in victory. Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?"
