“Come away by yourselves to a deserted place and rest a while.” All of us, even Jesus, need some time to “recharge our batteries,” and refocus ourselves. The new novices who have arrived at San Lorenzo and receive the Capuchin habit this Sunday are taking a year “away by themselves” to discern God’s will for them. Please pray for them all. And for their formation team, our friars Frs. Robert Stewart, Philip Bernier, and Bill Talentino. May the Lord also send us many holy vocations, especially from our parish community here at the Mission! 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.
