Imitating God

Dear Parishioners,

Being a Christian is challenging. To love as Christ loves us is tough, difficult and outrageous. You must choose to forgive others when you do not feel like it, care for others when you may not care to do so. Christianity is a faith that knows little of ease and much of struggle born of conviction. To entertain the thought that you and I could become “imitators of God” defies logic. But Saint Paul says we can.

- Deacon Robert

“God, the Blessed Virgin, the angels and
saints are about our path; they are at
our side and see all we do.”
- The Cure D’Ars
