“Give thanks always and for everything in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to God the Father.” This is wonderful advice from St. Paul. Every Sunday we are invited to give thanks, for that is what Eucharist means, thanksgiving. Jesus says that this sacrament of his flesh and blood is real food and drink, the reminder of the real presence of God in all of creation. This sacrament is so important that Jesus says without it we cannot find true life. And every time we come to mass we are reminded that Jesus wants us to have true life. Thank You indeed, Lord!
Welcome to Fr. Mark Beran who will share about his work and the needs at the St. Augustine Indian Mission in Nebraska for our annual Missionary Cooperative collection. Please be generous.
God bless you all! Fr. Bobby
"Jesus keeps knocking on our doors, the doors of our lives. He doesn't do this by magic, with special effects, with flashing lights and fireworks. Jesus keeps knocking on our door in the faces of our brothers and sisters, in the faces of our neighbors, in the faces of those at our side." Pope Francis
Participating in the good works of Together in Mission is one way that every Catholic in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles can show their love for their neighbor. Our theme for this 25th anniversary year of Together in Mission is “Let us Love.” The love that Jesus calls us to is more than words and more than feelings. Christian love is a call to action. Jesus calls us to open our hearts and extend a helping hand to those who are most vulnerable and most in need. Thank for your generous support of the Together in Mission campaign. May our Blessed Mother watch over you in her tender love and may our gracious God grant you peace and joy and love. Most Reverend José H. Gomez, Archbishop of Los Angeles
@ArchbishopGomez: Friends, we need to practice the corporal and spiritual works of mercy - seeking contact with our Lord through serving others.
