A Message from Father Bernie

Dear Friends,

    Over the past month, there has been a common theme running through the scriptures and homilies of our Sunday Liturgies.  Calls for us to be faithful disciples, light in the darkness, witnesses to the Lord, and our baptismal commitment to proclaim the Gospel.  For some, this message is getting through.  Over the past few weeks, a number of you have shared moments when you reached beyond your comfort zone to share your faith with another.  Your accounts of those moments of faith revelation remind me of the disciples that were sent out in pairs by Jesus to the cities where he would visit, empowered to cast out demons, heal the sick and proclaim the Good News of God’s Kingdom.  They returned rejoicing in what God had done through them.  What good news have you proclaimed about the Lord this past week?

Christ’s peace,

Fr. Bernie
