Letter From the Pastor – November 3, 2019

In recent years, thoughtful people from all walks of life have become increasingly concerned with preserving and protecting our natural environment.  There was a time when such concern was expressed by only a few scientists; and they, for the most part, were regarded as radicals and alarmists.   The rest of us seemed to think this earth was so expansive and so enduring that we could abuse it forever without  noticeable consequence.  Now, we are being forced to change our thinking.  The years of neglect have started to take their toll, and it is becoming increasingly clear that environmental pollution is […]

Letter From the Pastor – October 27, 2019

I think that sometimes the word “sin” slips through our mind as though it pertains merely to religion and nothing else.  Sin is not some abstraction that the church has dreamed up as an excuse for her own existence, far from it.  Multitudes of people who know little and care less about the Church and her message are firm believers in the reality of sin.  Why is it that government at every level spends millions of dollars to maintain police forces, jails, prisons and courts of law?  The basic reason is sin.  Why is it that automobile manufacturers equip their […]

Letter From the Pastor – October 20, 2019

It is often said that God works in most unusual ways.  His program has nothing to do with political power or military might.  It doesn’t wave banners or shout slogans or do any of the things calculated to grab headlines. Take for example the gospel account of the meeting of the Blessed Mother with her cousin, Elizabeth.  They were both pregnant at the time.  That beautiful story is indicative of the mysterious ways of God.  God’s purpose was to redeem the world.  So where does He start?  Not with a summit conference in Jerusalem or Geneva, nor with the organizing […]

Letter From the Pastor – October 19, 2019

As you know, the New Testament is a collection of twenty-seven different writings.  It contains biography, history, theology, philosophy, ethics, poetry, prophesy, and even some economics.  But first and foremost, it is God’s love letter to His children. The ministry of Jesus from start to finish was a revolutionary movement of love.  He  simply started loving people that heretofore had either been ignored or despised.  Everything He said and did challenged the existing concepts of God. And if we take Jesus seriously, His revelation of God will be as radical today as it was in the first century.  We will […]

Letter From the Pastor – October 6, 2019

Karol Wojtyla’s early years were spent in a setting much like that of any child growing up in Poland at the time, with a loving and religious family life and the usual schoolboy friendships.  But tragedy entered his life at the age of eight when his mother died after a short illness.  The death of his older brother Edmund, only four years later, who as a young doctor became fatally infected with scarlet fever, and his father’s death in the first year of World War II, left Karol Wojtyla with no immediate family before he turned 21.  Despite the loss […]
