Reflection from the desk of the Pastor
In today’s gospel somebody in the crowd asked Jesus this question: “Lord, will only a few people be saved?” Jesus did not give the number of those who will be saved. He even did not really answer the man’s question, but he just said: “Strive to enter through the narrow gate…”. In other words, he is answering a more important question, “How can I be saved?”. He is also giving us a chance to each one of us to avail of the salvation. Anyway, God is in charge of final judgement, why do we try to decide who will be saved? We as disciples of Jesus, must not be judgmental about who we think will go through the narrow gate. Our vision of God, we must see with a wide-angle lens that God’s salvation is open to all. God’s salvation is unbounded, and it reaches out to those whom we may not only distrust but also sometimes even despise.
Feast of St. Dominic: A Great Success
Once again, I extend my sincere thanks to all our parishioners for your generous support in making the feast of St. Dominic a grand success. It was indeed a historical moment for St. Dominic parish community to have the beautiful statue of St. Dominic blessed and installed. Thanks for coming in big numbers and displaying the great sense of communitarian spirit.
