The Gospel Reading this Sunday comes from Luke 12: 16-21 about a Certain Rich Man. We are taught – thoughts that exclude God; thoughts so centered in self, in self-ambition and self-enjoyment, leave God out.  This kind of person is laying up treasure for himself, “and is not rich toward God.” To be rich toward God means – whatever you have, or do not have . . . you do have God in your life, with all the attending blessings of fellowship with Him, through Jesus Christ. Whether you have worldly success or financial ease or not – you can be rich toward God.”

On November 22nd each year we celebrate St. Cecilia’s Day. St. Cecelia is the patron saint of music and musicians. Born in Rome, Italy during the 2nd century, she was pious from youth, and was known for her deep faith as well as her love for music. According to tradition, St. Cecilia gave glory to God and expressed her faith by singing religious hymns as she lay dying a martyr’s death.
