From the Pastor - November 4th, 2018

Dear Friends:

What a wonderful sight! Pumpkins on every table in the parish hall, “arts and crafts” materials in large quantities, snacks (some healthy—fruit, some not—donuts), goodies and drinks. Best of all KIDS! And parents! Creative costumes and lots of laughter and excitement. All ready to create PUMPKIN SAINTS!

One young member of the parish started to draw St. Cecilia on her pumpkin. When I asked her why, she told me the story of St. Cecilia and when I asked why she was doing St. Cecilia she told me her name is Cecilia. Some were very well-known saints—Francis and Patrick, Anne and the Blessed Mother Mary, some were not well known but, like Cecilia, were the names of the pumpkin decorators. There was even a St. Martin de Porres, MY patron saint! The kids learned about the saints they were making! Check out the pictures!
Have a great week.

Fr. Marty

Thirty-Second Sunday in Ordinary Time November 10/11, 2018

Many rich people put in large sums. Calling his disciples to himself, he said to them, “Amen, I say to you, this poor widow put in more than all the other contributors to the treasury. For they have all contributed from their surplus wealth, but she, from her poverty, has contributed all she had, her whole livelihood.
Mark 12: 41, 43-44

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.
