A farmer got so old that he couldn’t work the fields anymore. So he would spend the day just sitting on the porch. His son, still working the farm, would look up from time to time and see his father sitting there. “He’s of no use any more,” the son thought to himself, “he doesn’t do anything!”
One day the son got so frustrated by this, that he built a wood coffin, dragged it over to the porch, and told his father to get in. Without saying anything, the father climbed inside. After closing the lid, the son dragged the coffin to the edge of the farm where there was a high cliff.
As he approached the drop, he heard a light tapping on the lid from inside the coffin. He opened it up. Still lying there peacefully, the father looked up at his son.
“I know you are going to throw me over the cliff, but before you do, may I suggest something?”
“What is it?” replied the son.
“Throw me over the cliff, if you like,” said the father, “but save this good wood coffin. Your children might need to use it.”
The month of November is dedicated to All Souls. Please, be sure to turn in your remembrance envelopes with the names of your deceased loved ones. They will be placed on the Altar during the month of November.
Our next “Rummage Sale” will be Saturday, December 5th. We have begun collecting items for the sale. If you have any useful items in good condition you would like to donate, please consider donating them to your church.
Christmas is just around the corner and our Church is looking for Pine Christmas trees to decorate our Church, as is our beautiful tradition. Please, see Fr. Richard if you know of someone, or if you are interested in donating a tree on their property.
Thank you again for your support!
