I, the LORD, have called you for the victory of justice…I formed you, and set you as a covenant of the people, a light for the nations. Isaiah spoke these words about the Messiah, the anointed one of God. But on this feast of Jesus’ baptism we remember that by baptism in Christ (Christos=anointed) we are part of His body and called to take part in His mission. A president once spoke of “a thousand points of light.” It’s not a bad image, as the light of each one of us may seem small and easily blown out, yet together, with God’s grace, we shine like a brilliant starlit night.

Soon we will be marking a special time of respect for human life and our need to protect the most vulnerable, especially the children in the womb. May God help us to work for this in all we do, for each of us is precious in God’s eyes!

God bless and keep 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

“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.
