here. If we have no record of your parish membership it could be quite embarrassing to us, or to you or your family, when some-

SHARING OUR GIFTS
Autumn is the season for harvesting and sharing the fruits of our
labors. This week's scriptures use images of the harvest, family
life, pregnancy, and investment to describe the abundant harvest
in the reign of God. We discover that sharing the gifts we have
been given brings eternal rewards for everyone.
In the Gospel parable a master entrusts his possessions to three
servants before going on a journey. Each is given some talents.
What they do with those talents determines what the master will
do with them when he returns. How about us? What are we
doing with our talents? How will our Master treat us when he
The woman who fears the LORD is to be praised
(Proverbs 31:10-13, 19-20, 30-31).
Blessed are those who fear the Lord
Brothers and sisters, you are children of the light
(1 Thessalonians 5:1-6).
To all those who have, more will be given,
and they will have an abundance
(Matthew 25:14-30 [14-15, 19-21]).
