From Our Pastor...

Posted on May 12, 2023 in: Pastor


Writing in the fourth century, St. Gregory of Nyssa, one of the early Church Fathers, tells us “What came about in bodily form in Mary, the fullness of the Godhead shining through Christ in the Blessed Virgin, takes place in a similar way in every person that has been Baptized and Confirmed.” The Lord does not come in bodily form, for we “no longer know Christ according to the flesh”, but Christ dwells in us spiritually and God the Father takes up His abode with Him, the Gospel tells us. In this way the child Jesus is born in each one of us.

Our Parish recognizes and congratulates all of our teens who prepared for the Sacrament of Confirmation. Our gratitude to Archbishop Mitchell Rozanski, who conferred the Sacrament Tuesday, May 2, 2023.

Today we pray for our Mothers living and deceased, we also pray for spiritual Mothers, for single Mothers, for step Mothers, for Mothers who have miscarried, and for Mothers whose children have died.

A young child asks Mom, “Who am I?” In the words of a great preacher and theologian, Peter Gomes, the Mother replies, “You are formed by God, nourished by God’s love, preserved by God’s mercy, and expectant of God’s promises. You are the human expression of the divine hope. You are God’s best and last chance in the world. Who are You? That is who you are. You are all that and more. And for that, we praise God!”

Youth fades; love droops; the leaves of friendship fall; a Mother’s secret hope outlives them all. Remember, Mother is the name for God on the lips and in the hearts of little children.
