Jesus is the answer … 15-Apr-2018
From The Desk of Father David
Dear Friends in Christ,
As we hear Acts of the Apostles proclaimed during this Easter Season, we recall how the early church allowed the message of Jesus to transform their lives and this transformation helped them deal with the problems of the day. Our lives and world have become complicated. There used to be a bumper sticker “Jesus is the answer.” The early church would say Jesus is the answer to all of life’s difficult problems, because Jesus is life itself. In the Acts of the Apostles we see ordinary people dealing with life by putting on the mind of Christ – following the Holy Spirit – and we are called to put on the mind of Christ which enables us to live life to the fullest. To do so we need to pray with all of our heart, mind and soul, read the New Testament, fully participate at Eucharist, go to confession periodically, pray to the Holy Spirit, take time to look for God’s presence in our lives and give thanks. In other words to turn our thoughts to what is right and good, to turn our thoughts to God. As we do this we are moving creation toward the realization of the Kingdom of God on earth, this is the dream of Jesus.
To help us prepare for the feast of Pentecost, to pray to the Holy Spirit, to the right is a prayer you might choose to use.
May Jesus set our hearts on fire with Divine Love.
In Christ’s love,
