Letter From the Pastor – March 21, 2021

 From the human point of view God does the most unlikely things.  Who would have expected Him to visit the earth, but He did.  Who would have expected Him to be born in a stable, but He did.  Who would have expected Him to die on a cross, but He did.  And when He decided to find a leader for His Church, who would have expected Him to choose Peter, but He did. This goes to show that God’s ways are not our ways.  This is especially so in His choice of leaders.  Take the case of Moses for instance:  […]

Letter From the Pastor – March 14, 2021

                One of the most heated debates these days concerns the use of the death penalty.  One side is for it; the other side is against it.  One says it is moral; the other says it is immoral.  One says it serves as an effective deterrent to crime; the other says it does not.  And even among those who favor its use, there are areas of discussion and disagreement.  To what crimes should it apply?  What should be the age limit?  What method should be used?                 The debate goes on.  The questions […]

Do you remember the Gospel passage in which Jesus was a guest at a wedding in Cana of Galilee?  It must have been a festive occasion because the wine was gone before the celebration was over.  The Blessed Mother told Jesus about the problem and He came up with a marvelous solution.  At His instruction, six stone jars were filled with   water.  Then some was drawn out and taken to the head waiter.  He tasted it and then said to the groom: “People usually serve the choice wine first, then a lesser vintage.  What you have done is keep the […]

Every wife, mother or whoever happens to have the responsibility knows that there are two ways to clean house.  One is routine and regular; the other is major and seldom.  In the first, you sweep the floors, vacuum the carpets, wash the dishes, make the beds, scrub the bathrooms, and dust the furniture.   The second way includes all of the above but goes a bit further.  You also move the furniture in order to get at the dirt that has accumulated under and behind.  You clean out the refrigerator and throw away all of the moldy food.  You rearrange the […]

Letter From the Pastor – February 21, 2021

Would you agree that most people have a rather casual concept of forgiveness?  Many tend to view it somewhat the same way as a police officer tearing up a traffic ticket or a judge saying: “Case dismissed.” And yet with Jesus, forgiveness is never shallow and inconsequential.  Calvary can be understood only in terms of Jesus’ concern for us and for what sin does to us, and the suffering and sorrow it causes in our lives and in the lives of others. It may be less painful to close our eyes and minds to our own sins, but the price […]
