Reflection from the desk of Fr. Terry

Jesus said, "blessed are you poor and blessed are you who hunger." When we talk about poverty, about being poor, it does not mean of material poverty. He certainly does not mean also that wealth and money are intrinsically evil and that we should work for material advancement in this world. However, there is a worse form of poverty than material poverty, it is loneliness, emptiness and being unloved. Jesus is challenging us to build a better world where there is justice and peace, no killings and exploitation, no cheating and suppression. Jesus knew what is being poor, being born in a manger, having to flee the persecution of Herod and at the end being crucified. He has gone through everything that is being said in these Beatitudes and given us the path that leads to being blessed.

Reflection from the desk of Fr. Terry

Call and commitment:
The apostolate of the Pastors will frequently be unable to obtain its full effect; Where lay responsibility is absent the church is incomplete,

Whether you are a teacher, government official or employees, doctor, politician, nurse, executive and others, you share in the apostolate of preaching, teaching, healing and witnessing to Christ's teaching.
