A Message from our Pastor, Fr. Bobby
When they had gathered together, they asked him, “Lord, are you at this time going to restore the kingdom to Israel?” He answered them, “It is not for you to know the times or seasons that the Father has established by his own authority.” The Apostles were anxious to know the exact time of fulfillment, but Jesus would not tell them. He wanted them to concentrate on something more important: But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, throughout Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. There are many people wondering if the current pandemic is a sign of the end of the world, and too many people ready to say they know the day and the hour. Jesus could come again tomorrow; it could be in a million years. He doesn’t want us to focus on knowing the exact time. Jesus wants us to use the time we are given, even a time of pandemic, to proclaim the Kingdom of God, even to the ends of the earth. May the Holy Spirit help us now to know what that means.
May God bless and watch over you and strengthen your faith, hope, and love each day! Fr. Bobby
