A New Covenant

Dear Parishioners,

According to Jeremiah, God says, “I will place my law within them and write it upon their hearts; I will be their God and they shall be my people.” (Jeremiah 31:31-34)

When Ezekiel describes God creating a new Covenant, the prophet speaks of the Creator tracing that promise and commitment over and over on the hearts of the people. What an image of God in action, tenderly and carefully and repeatedly tracing the admonition to love God and neighbor over and over in our own hearts.

- Deacon Robert

“Find innovative ways to create dignified jobs for
young people. We need to be creative with young people.
If they have no opportunities, they will get into
drugs and be more vulnerable to suicide. It’s not enough
to give them food. Dignity is given to you when you can
bring food home from one’s own labor.”
~ Pope Francis’ “Secrets to Happiness” (#6 of 10)
