Pastoral Plan Activities and Prayer

October 10

Please read the Gospel for this Sunday Mark 10:17-30.

In the Gospel Jesus calls the man to sell what he has and give all to the poor and then come and follow him. The man goes away sad. He is not able to give up all his wealth. Jesus sees that the wealth possesses the man and dominates his life. He seek to free him from slavery to his possessions. Our desire for money and possessions can dominate our lives.

Dialogue: How do you keep the desire for material possessions from dominating your life and your family? Are there ways you and your family share with others your time, talent, and treasure as a way of responding to the Lord’s call in today’s Gospel? What are your favorite charities? How do you invite your children to also share with them?

Activity: Bring a food item to church to share with others this Thanksgiving time. Buy a box of food bars and hand them out one by one to those begging at street corners. Talk with the family about how you might support your favorite charity.
