A Message from our Pastor, Fr. Bobby

“Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest.” Lord, in these times when we feel the burden of pandemic and the labor of addressing societal issues, give us true rest, for our spirit is willing but our flesh is weak. Help us to live in the spirit, so that we may be comforted by the words of St. Paul: If the Spirit of the one who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, the one who raised Christ from the dead will give life to your mortal bodies also, through his Spirit that dwells in you.

On this weekend in a special way we ask God to bless our country and help us to realize the values upon which it was founded, so that we may all learn to love one another as Christ loves us.        Fr. Bobby

USCCB Daily Mass Readings

"Keep your eyes fixed on the outstretched arms of Christ crucified, let yourself be saved over and over again." Pope Francis

"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
