FROM THE PASTOR'S DESK
This week we welcome the Totus Tuus team here to spend time with our kids! Please go up and welcome them personally to our parish. They are giving their lives/summers to the Lord’s people. Daily Masses will be at 11:30am each day at St. Joseph’s Monday to Friday. It ends with a water fight on Friday!
It is good to reflect on one’s life and vocation or state in life with a certain frequency. This is why in any good spiritual game plan, an annual retreat is always a good idea. At this time, after ten years as a priest of Jesus Christ, I have only one word that comes to mind above all the others: gratitude. I am so grateful to God for my life as His priest. It has humbled me, challenged me, blessed me beyond imagining, and given me a share in the mission of Jesus Christ. I thank God that this happened to me: He called me, and I responded. I have not always responded generously or promptly, but I am renewed at every sacrament and prayer to keep going and striving for Christian perfection by His grace! The Lord has been so good. I am so happy to follow Jesus. He is my Savior, Redeemer, Teacher, Friend, and spouse of my soul. God bless you!

As we all know, the priesthood is a pretty unique profession. From the faith perspective, we call it a vocation, because that is what it is — a calling from God. From a secular perspective, it is a very unique job for many reasons, one of which I am sure we hardly give thought to: Other than maybe teachers, who speak to their students following a particular curriculum, Catholic priests are one of the very few professions that speak to an audience every day.

Our Catholic faith rightly demands that we protect innocent human life and therefore that we oppose abortion and oppose laws permitting abortion. This is a straightforward matter of justice in service to the common good.
In our complex form of government, as our nearly 50 year battle to undo the damage caused by Roe v. Wade shows, doing this is no easy task when some of our fellow citizens disagree with us vehemently and when many more of them are conflicted and ambivalent. That’s why Catholic teaching, for instance Pope St. John Paul II’s encyclical on the Gospel of Life, make it clear that we can pursue this goal of protecting the unborn incrementally, step by step.Read More
