Msgr. Flynn Invites You to “From Conflict to Communion”
“From Conflict to Communion” is a study document created by a joint commission of Lutherans and Roman
Catholics in preparation for the commemoration of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. You are invited to
three evenings of discussion/prayer/fellowship with our Lutheran brothers and sisters. We will discuss the events
that lead to division in the church 500 years ago. The differences that still exist will be addressed but mostly the
talks will center on the common things we celebrate: our unity in Christ, similarities in our theology, liturgy, and
practice of our faith in active love. The series begins here at St. Mark’s on Tuesday, October 11th, at 7 PM with
Pastor Mary Farnham as guest speaker. On Tuesday, October 18th, Fr. Bill Lago will speak at Holy Trinity Lutheran
Church, Manasquan, and on Tuesday, October 25th, our pastor will speak at St. Denis, Manasquan.
Let’s come learn about and grow in respect for each other’s faith.

Habakkuk 1:2-3; 2:2-4 Behold, he
whose soul is not upright in him
shall fail, but the righteous shall
live by his faith.
Psalms 95:1-2, 6-9 Let us come
into his presence with
thanksgiving; let us make a joyful
noise to him with songs of praise!
2 Timothy 1:6-8, 13-14 Do not be
ashamed then of testifying to our
Lord, nor of me his prisoner, but
share in suffering for the gospel in
the power of God.
Luke 17:5-10 And the Lord said, “If
you had faith as a grain of mustard
seed, you could say to this mulberry
tree, ‘Be rooted up, and be planted
in the sea,’ and it would obey you.”
Now through November 6th, help save lives by

October Prayer Petitions by Marge Loenser
It’s October and I see leaves and acorns starting to fall already! When I
look up at the tall trees with tremendous masses of green leaves, I sigh
because I know that in November they will be piles of dried up leaves
crackling underfoot. So much for staying in the present moment.
October finds us celebrating so many wonderful saints through whose
intercession we can pray for our families, the sick, special intentions and for
peaceful solutions to our racial problems across this country. For example,
St. John Brebeuf and St. Isaac Jogues were French priests that gave their
lives to bring Jesus to the Indians in North America. They suffered torture
and eventually death to unify races under Christ. On the first we have
St Therese, the Little Flower, who taught us how to pray in her “little way.”
The little way brought countless souls closer to God. There’s St. Francis of
Assisi on the 4th, whose humility showed us that all of life was precious. On
the 18th, we have St. Luke, who gave us the infancy narrative and who, (and I
love this) honored the women that followed Jesus, women that gave up
home and security to provide for Him and the apostles as they traveled.
Let us remember that October is the month of the Holy Rosary of our
Blessed Mother. We honor her by using the Rosary to pray for those in
need, especially the unborn! Every now and then I get a “wake up” moment,
and one happened last week. I was thinking: when Jesus becomes present
on our altar after the consecration, and He looks out at us, what does He
see? Think about it. I think He sees many with heads bowed in adoration,
some folks distracted, and some looking up with imploring eyes. But how
many people does Jesus see that are smiling at Him? Why not smile back at
Jesus? Think about it! Pray for the United States, my sisters and brothers,
and that God will provide us with a leader we will be proud of. May the
saints pray for you and may Almighty God bless you abundantly!
