November Dead List- November is the month when we remember our dearly departed. We remember them and pray for them out of gratitude for all they did and were for us.  We remember all those who, down the years by their faith, their Christian witness, their heroic deeds of self-sacrifice have inspired countless others to give more of themselves in service to God and humanity.  Envelopes are available for the names of our deceased loved ones.  There are Masses booked for the month of November: See Mass Intentions.

PRAYER OF ST. FRANCIS OF ASSISI : PRAYER FOR PEACE   Lord, make me an instrument of your peace, Where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; where there is sadness, joy;  O Divine Master, grant that I may seek not so much to be consoled as to console; to be understood as to understand; to be loved as to love. For it is in giving that we receive; it is in pardoning that we are pardoned; and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life. Amen.


REMEMBRANCE SUNDAY.  What happens on Remembrance Sunday? What is Remembrance Sunday?  On the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month in 1918 the fighting of the First World War stopped. It was known as the Great War, because of the size and scale of it. Over 16 million people – soldiers and civilians – died during its four years.  In 1919 an Australian journalist, Edward George Honey, wrote to the London Evening News suggesting that this time should be marked by a respectful silence to remember those who had died. When King George V read the letter he issued a proclamation which called for a two minute silence: “So that, in perfect stillness, the thoughts of everyone may be concentrated on reverent remembrance of the glorious dead.” The second Sunday in November is Remembrance Sunday. At 11 o’clock, the Royal Family along with religious leaders and politicians gather at the Cenotaph in Whitehall for a service of remembrance. At war memorials, shopping centres and churches all over the UK, others will do the same. One of the traditional readings in any service comes not from the Bible but from a poem by Laurence Binyon, written only a few months into the First World War. The words came to honour the many young men who never returned from that war – and the soldiers who still give their lives today. ‘They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old: Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.  At the going down of the sun and in the morning,  We will remember them.’ (from ‘For the Fallen’, 1914Why do people wear poppies?  In 1915 an army surgeon, John Macrae, was taking a break from saving lives. He was remembering some of the friends he had lost and wrote these words:  “In Flanders’ fields the poppies blow  Between the crosses, row on row  That mark our place; and in the sky  The larks, still bravely singing, fly,  Scarce heard amid the guns below.” (‘In Flanders Fields’, 1915)  Today they are read at Remembrance Services around the world.  Poppies grow where the soil has been disturbed – in this case, by war. They became a symbol of people who sacrificed their lives in war. Poppies are sold by the Royal British Legion, a charity dedicated to helping war veterans – that is, people who fought in wars, many of whom were left with injuries. People buy and wear the poppies to give money, and also as a sign of respect for those who fought.  Author unknown.

O God of truth and justice, we hold before you those men and women

who have died in active service. As we honour their courage and cherish their memory, may we put our faith in your future; for you are the source of life and hope, now and for ever. Amen.
