FROM THE PASTOR'S DESK
The Way of Trust and Love
I pray this finds you and your families well. You have been in my daily prayers in my several days away with my brother priests at the altar and in adoration we offered daily to our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament. The way we move forward and remain strong and united is gathering around our Eucharistic Lord. He communicates there his presence which is balm on our wounds and deficiencies in the areas of trust and love. In Him we find one who can be trusted and who can be loved without fear and without shadows of a possible betrayal. In truth he is our way forward in the world. There are many pathways forward one can take. For us, it will be the way of trust and love in Jesus. Let us love him and trust him with great abandon. When we do this, we actually draw closer together as a parish, as believers. To quote Fulton Sheen, “We must live what we believe or we will end up believing what we live.” Have we been living in fear or cynicism? Then the way out is living our beliefs strongly. One principle belief is to continue adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and coming to the sacraments for our source of love and trust in God, who is with us in all of our tensions and messes! Trust Him, and love Him, and this will bring us forward in the health of soul we crave.
Let me know how I can help you and yours if the need arises.

The results of the election verified something that has been increasingly clear over a number of recent election cycles: politically, anyway, we’re divided just about in half.
Nationally, in terms of popular vote, out of all those tens of millions of votes cast, the margin was less than 5%, just like it’s been the last three presidential elections. In fact, in the 21st century, five of the six presidential elections have ended up that way.Read More

It’s always interesting when very great and holy saints and even doctors of the church seem to give conflicting advice — like St. Thomas Aquinas and St. Francis de Sales do on the timely and important topic of anger.

The seminary I went to had a heavy emphasis on writing papers, whereas other seminaries might put more focus on test-taking. Mine was one in which I felt like it was a continuous stream of producing papers that no one would ever read except for the professor.
