Scripture

  • First Reading

    In those days, Amalek came and waged war against Israel.
    Moses, therefore, said to Joshua,
    "Pick out certain men,
    and tomorrow go out and engage Amalek in battle.
    I will be standing on top of the hill
    with the staff of God in my hand."
    So Joshua did as Moses told him:
    he engaged Amalek in battle
    after Moses had climbed to the top of the hill with Aaron and Hur.
    As long as Moses kept his hands raised up,
    Israel had the better of the fight,
    but when he let his hands rest,
    Amalek had the better of the fight.
    Moses'hands, however, grew tired;
    so they put a rock in place for him to sit on.
    Meanwhile Aaron and Hur supported his hands,
    one on one side and one on the other,
    so that his hands remained steady till sunset.
    And Joshua mowed down Amalek and his people
    with the edge of the sword.

    Ex 17:8-13

  • Second Reading

    Beloved:
    Remain faithful to what you have learned and believed,
    because you know from whom you learned it,
    and that from infancy you have known the sacred Scriptures,
    which are capable of giving you wisdom for salvation
    through faith in Christ Jesus.
    All Scripture is inspired by God
    and is useful for teaching, for refutation, for correction,
    and for training in righteousness,
    so that one who belongs to God may be competent,
    equipped for every good work.

    I charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus,
    who will judge the living and the dead,
    and by his appearing and his kingly power:
    proclaim the word;
    be persistent whether it is convenient or inconvenient;
    convince, reprimand, encourage through all patience and teaching.

    2 Tm 3:14-4:2

  • Gospel

    Jesus told his disciples a parable
    about the necessity for them to pray always without becoming weary.
    He said, "There was a judge in a certain town
    who neither feared God nor respected any human being.
    And a widow in that town used to come to him and say,
    'Render a just decision for me against my adversary.'
    For a long time the judge was unwilling, but eventually he thought,
    'While it is true that I neither fear God nor respect any human being,
    because this widow keeps bothering me
    I shall deliver a just decision for her
    lest she finally come and strike me.'"
    The Lord said, "Pay attention to what the dishonest judge says.
    Will not God then secure the rights of his chosen ones
    who call out to him day and night?
    Will he be slow to answer them?
    I tell you, he will see to it that justice is done for them speedily.
    But when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth?"

    Lk 18:1-8

Prayer for Spiritual Communion

My Jesus,

I believe you are really here in the Blessed Sacrament.

I love you more than anything in the world,

And I hunger to receive you.

But since I cannot receive Communion at this time,

Feed my soul at least spiritually.

I unite myself to you now,

As I do when I actually receive you in Holy Communion

Amen.

Stewardship

 

Past, Present, and Future 

The annual Stewardship Renewal campaign is part of the fabric of our parish life. Each October, you are asked to consider how you will share with our community—personally and financially.
 
Even though the annual campaign has had many names—"Live & Give in Gratitude," "In This Place," and "Serve, Support, Sustain," to name just three—the message is always the same and will be so in the years ahead. Giving makes us part of the St. Monica community; it’s an essential commitment, a needed connection that allows us to say “all are welcome” in a hundred different ways. It brings our parish continuity and promise, it brings us the satisfaction that when we join together, we can make marvelous things happen.
 
St. Monica is our spiritual home, but managing it is full of down-to-earth realities: things must be done, bills must be paid, and budgets developed to see what’s possible in the year ahead. In addition to the work of our clergy and staff, things “get done” thanks to our volunteers—those who share their time and talents doing the parish’s work. We pray that each of you will renew your commitment and feel rewarded by giving your hearts and hands to others.
 
Then, there are the financial aspects of Stewardship Renewal. The commitment of your generosity keeps the lights on, supports over 100 ministries, provides for those in need, and lets us go about the work of developing loving disciples of Christ. When you drop money in the basket or sign-up for a recurring online donation, you make all these things possible. Your financial pledge allows us to plan ahead and know that we have the resources to carry out our mission and ensure that we are #StillStMonica.
 

 

We encourage you, if possible, to opt for a recurring donation through GiveCentral. Recurring donations help us better predict our cash flow and offer you convenience, flexibility (you can easily make changes), and a record of payments for tax purposes. Currently, 55% of you choose this alternative. We hope even more of you will sign-up by going HERE—which takes you to a page where you can set up recurring donations or make a one-time gift. For those already enrolled, you’ll find instructions about managing your recurring donations.If you are comfortable increasing your recurring donation or making a special gift to help serve, support, and sustain our parish, we consider it a blessing. Please enroll in recurring donations or change current donations on or before October 28.
