They had been discussing among themselves on the way who was the greatest. Then he sat down, called the Twelve, and said to them, “If anyone wishes to be first, he shall be the last of all and the servant of all.”  Jesus’ secret to success is this: don’t be worried about success! If you want to be number one, stop trying to be number one! This is difficult advice: it is hard to seek to be a servant of all. Because he knew how challenging His teaching is, Jesus not only proposed it: He lived it! He was the Messiah, the Son of God. He could have lived in a palace and had servants galore. He chose to live a life of simplicity and service and did not avoid even suffering and death, part of every human life. So, we should consider Jesus’ words carefully as we make our everyday decisions about how to live.

We had a wonderful mass in honor of the 214th anniversary of our founding, September 17, 1804. Thank you to everyone who helped with the mass and the reception afterward. Also, thank you for your prayerful consideration of our need to overcome our deficit.

God bless you! 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

“It is not enough to say we are Christians. We must live the faith not only with words but with our actions”  - Pope Francis

Pope Francis: Remember the spiritual as much as the corporal works of mercy

@ArchbishopGomez: Friends, we need to practice the corporal and spiritual works of mercy - seeking contact with our Lord through serving others.
