IHM CHURCH - November 15 Bulletin
November 14/15, 2020
One of the biggest challenges of this pandemic is being advised not to take the hand of someone outside of our household. For some, it has meant not being able to hold the hand of a loved elder relative in a skilled care facility for months on end.
There is something in us that knows this is not the way we as human beings are meant to live ordinarily...

COUNT BLESSINGS WITH A THANKFUL HEART
Gratitude for God’s blessings is one of the most distinctive marks of those of us who follow him. An ungrateful heart leads to dissatisfaction and despair but a true spirit of thankfulness restores contentment and joy. November is a time to count our blessings as children of God.
Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, his mercy endures forever” (Psalm 118:29). No matter how we stray, forgiveness and mercy are ours for the asking when we are truly sorry.
The Lord is good to those who wait for him, to the soul that seeks him” (Lamentations 3:25). Hope is believing that God will keep his promises. This virtue helps us to place our trust in God and receive his gifts with gratitude.
I can do all things in him who strengthens me” (Philippians 4:13). The strength we need most doesn’t begin in our bodies but deep in our souls. The fatigue we feel physically reminds us of how quickly our hearts can wander and fail. The virtue of wisdom prompts us to ask God to strengthen faith more often than we ask him to strengthen the body.
And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in the one body. And be thankful” (Colossians 3:15).

DONATE BLOOD TODAY
Area hospitals and NYC Health + Hospitals, are joining forces with New York Blood Center (NYBC) to increase blood donations. Temporary blood shortages are not uncommon during winter holidays each year, but the COVID-19 pandemic has created a chronic shortage across the country that shows no sign of improving.
New York’s healthcare system requires 1,500 donations each day to treat patients ranging from trauma victims to newborn babies and cancer patients. Prior to the pandemic, donors could stop by community blood drives at convenient locations. Blood donors can now make appointments to visit donor centers,
but donations are at just 65% of pre-pandemic levels
- well below what is needed by hospitals and patients in our area. This is an incredibly challenging time for our communities.
