St. Francis used to pray this simple prayer before the Lord: Who are You, O God, and who am I? True humility is recognizing God as our Creator, the One who gives us all that is good and calls us into life. Sin is deciding we don’t want God to tell us what is good, but to decide for ourselves. That is why the serpent tempted Eve to do what God had forbidden by saying:  God knows well that the moment you eat of [the fruit] your eyes will be opened and you will be like gods knowing what is good and what is evil. Our faith is that God, through scriptures, prayer and the teachings of the church, wants to shape our lives and lead us into true life. Lent is a time to let God be God and open our hearts in faith to the message of Jesus Christ.

Welcome again to Fr. Francis Russo. Please pray for him as he leads our parish Lenten Missions. God bless and keep you!    Fr. Bobby 

Are any among you sick?
Please remember to call the parish office to let us know of anyone who is ill, especially if someone is in the hospital or in serious condition at home. We want to pray for our ill brothers and sisters and make sure they receive the support of the sacraments. God bless! 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
