REFLECTION FROM THE DESK OF THE PASTOR
We see many people choose to walk in darkness. There are many who do not want to know the truth. They would rather stay in the dark. Those who have been called by Christ to be his disciples, all of us, have to have the courage to bring the light of His Truth to those who choose darkness. There are many people who are thrown into darkness. Due to no fault of their own, they are put into horrible situations. There are many children who have been shuffled from home to home in the foster systems and then forced to make their way alone in the world when they turn 18. There are many elderly people who are left with hardly any income to support themselves. Sometimes people will say to me, and I’m sure, to you, “There is no way out for me.” Well there is something we can do. We can love them. We can help whenever possible. We can let them know that they are not alone in the world. We can pray with them. We can pray for them.
The world is beautiful for those who are in the light. The world is horrible for those who are in darkness. We are in the light. We need to bring this light to others. Like Simon Peter, Andrew James and John we need to be fishers of men. Let us use our own unique talents to bring others to Christ. Our central prayer, the fundamental prayer of the Church is the Mass. We come together each week, and for some every day, to receive the grace, the strength. We need to complete the mission we have been given to engage others and lead them to join us in the journey of the kingdom of God.
