Dear Parishioners,

Words express the power of the Gospel (Matthew 13:1-23). Ours is a portable, moving, traveling faith propelled by words. Gospel words like “hope,” “grace,” “forgiveness,” “joy,” and “mercy” lighten our burdens and have in them the power to bless others. But we have to take them with us and use them. These words must be sown, shared, given away knowing that God will bring a harvest in God’s time. What if we carefully selected just a few words and infused them with God’s love? And what if we shared those words with others? Do that this week. Sow those words and watch what God does.

- Deacon Robert

“NOTHING is more unworthy of a
Christian, whose life should be an imitation of
a God who is the soul of Honor and Truth
itself, than to think one thing and say another.”
~ Thoughts of the Cure D’Ars
