All Saints' Day (Nov. 1) and All Souls' Day (Nov. 2) are fast approaching! I can think of no better way to prepare for special these days than to take part in our parish's season of extended Eucharistic Adoration next week, when we will focus on praying for the faithful departed. The Blessed Sacrament will be exposed in St. Sebastian Chapel from 7 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 29, till 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 31 (except for the hours when regular weekday Masses are celebrated).
I urge you to sign up for an hour or more during that time, so you can spend some extra time with Our Eucharistic Lord and intercede for departed loved ones and others who need our prayers. Sign up is quick and easy; just go to http://www.stbrendansatl.com/adoration-signup/.
Our national Election Day (Tuesday, Nov. 6) is also fast approaching. As you decide how you will vote, I urge you all to get informed about the positions of the presidential candidates on important issues. The Georgia Catholic Conference has prepared a useful summary of information to help you, which is available here: http://communique.archatl.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/POC-Eng2.pdf. Please take a few moments to review it and pray about your decision.
God bless you this week!
