From the Pastor


Dear Friends:

 REASONS TO COME HOME

5.  We hunger for meaning and purpose in our lives.
4.  We need God’s forgiveness and healing for our failings and God’s mercy to help us become better people.
3.  Our families need to be built on a strong foundation of faith and we need to live in community with others.
2.  The Catholic Church has the Sacraments—and we especially long for the Eucharist.
1.  Catholicism is TRUE!

Have a great week!

Fr. Marty Lally

Fifteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time - July 13 & 14, 2019

Jesus Christ
is the image of the invisible God,
the firstborn of all creation.
For in him were created all things in heaven and on earth, the visible and the invisible,
whether thrones or dominions or principalities or
powers; all things were created through him and for him. He is before all things,
and in him all things hold together.
He is the head of the body, the church.
He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead,
that in all things he himself might be preeminent.
For in him all the fullness was pleased to dwell, and through him to reconcile all things for him, making peace by the blood of his cross through him,
whether those on earth or those in heaven.

Colossians 1: 15 - 20

World Day of Prayer for Priests - Friday, June 28

Jesus, Eternal High Priest,
you came to us to save us from our sins
and to open heaven for us.
Before you died for us, you gave us the holy priesthood and the Eucharist at the Last Supper.
We thank you for our priest, who is your minister to help us grow in holiness and to attain heaven.
We are grateful for the many gifts that he brings to our community:
for leading us together in Eucharistic worship,
for baptizing our children,
for visiting us in our homes,
for comforting us in sickness,
for blessing our marriage,
for forgiving us our sins,
for supporting us in sorrow,
for helping us to grow in faith,
for inspiring us to be saints.
We want to be always be attentive to our priest, and never to take him for granted.
He needs our friendship and love,
kind words and acts of thoughtfulness,
and our prayers and sacrifices.
Dear Lord, we ask you to bless our priest and confirm him in his vocation.
Give him the gifts that he needs to shepherd us in holiness, strength and joy.
We offer to you this prayer for our priest,
who is our father, brother, and friend.
Amen

Thirty-Third Sunday in Ordinary Time November 17/18, 2018

“In those days after the tribulation the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will be falling from the sky, and the powers in the heavens will be shaken. And then they will see the ‘Son of Man coming in the clouds’ with great power and glory, and then he will send out the angels and gather his elect from the four winds, from the end of the earth to the end of the sky.”
Mark 13: 24-32

Charity is the measure by which our Lord judges all things.

Twenty– Fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time - September 22/23, 2018

Saint James the Apostle

“Where jealousy and selfish ambition exist” there is the temptation too “beset the just one” with “revilement and torture.”  This is what Jesus reveals to his disciples: he is to be “handed over to men and they will kill him.” The disciples’ swaggering response is to squabble among themselves about “who was the greatest.”  “Where do the conflicts among you come from?” From “your passions that make war within,” spurring us to “kill and envy.” Yet, for all our coveting, we do not possess. So Jesus puts his arms around a child.  In order to receive this little one we must be pure, peaceable, gentle, full of mercy - so much better than fighting and waging war. We “have proof of his gentleness” in the desire to be gentle that Jesus generates in us.

Paul Miki, Feast Day - February 6

Three and a half centuries ago, 26 martyrs of Japan were crucified on a hill, overlooking Nagasaki. Among them were priests, brothers, and laymen, Franciscans, Jesuits, and members of the Secular Franciscan Order; there were catechists, doctors, simple artisans, and servants, old men and innocent children—all united in a common faith and love for Jesus and his Church.

Brother Paul Miki, a Jesuit and a native of Japan, has become the best known among the martyrs of Japan. While hanging upon a cross, Paul Miki preached to the people gathered for the execution: “The sentence of judgment says these men came to Japan from the Philippines, but I did not come from any other country. I am a true Japanese. The only reason for my being killed is that I have taught the doctrine of Christ. I certainly did teach the doctrine of Christ. I thank God it is for this reason I die. I believe that I am telling only the truth before I die. I know you believe me and I want to say to you: Ask Christ to help you to become happy. After Christ’s example I forgive my persecutors. I do not hate them. I ask God to have pity on all, and I hope my blood will fall on my fellow men as a fruitful rain.”

St. John of Capistrano - Feast Day October 23rd


Born Dec. 23, 1807 in Spain - Died Oct. 24, 1870, France
The “spiritual father of Cuba” was a missionary, religious founder, social reformer, queen’s chaplain, writer and publisher, archbishop, and refugee. He was a Spaniard whose work took him to the Canary Islands, Cuba, Madrid, Paris, and to the First Vatican Council
