  • Notes from your Pastor

    As we celebrate the Solemnity of the Ascension, we can look at the stained glass window in our church.  There we see the picture of Jesus ascending into Heaven.  He promises not to leave us orphans but to give us the Holy Spirit.  Christ also promises that He is with us always and He will return again.  In the Gospel of Matthew, He gives this instruction, “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, and teach them to obey everything I have commanded you.  This is called the Great Commission.  It is given to us as well.
     
    Possibly, we can follow the example of the Apostles and the Blessed Virgin in spending more time in prayer between the days of Ascension and Pentecost.  As they spent quality time in prayer waiting for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, we can do the same.
     
    All of us are given the great commission to share the Good News of our salvation with others.  All of us are called to build church together.  We do this by prayer, fellowship and service.  We do this by sharing our time, talent and treasure.  Hopefully, many of you will come to our May Crowning on Sunday, May 15 th at 12:15 pm during which we honor our heavenly Mother.  Also, on Sunday, May 15 th at 5:30 pm you may consider coming to Father Matt Glaros’ Prayer and Faith Study.
     
    We honor our mothers, both living and deceased.  The Gospel speaks to us of God’s unconditional love.  We give thanks for the many ways our mothers have expressed that unconditional, sacrificial love for us. 
     
    We should always remember the Eight Beatitudes for Mothers…
    Blessed are mothers who did without for us, they will be rewarded.
    Blessed are mother who lost sleep when we were sick, they will find rest.
    Blessed are mothers who taught us how to pray, they will share God’s kingdom.
    Blessed are mothers, who comfort us, they shall be comforted.
    Blessed are mothers who taught us right from wrong, they will know justice.
    Blessed are mothers who showed us the Christian life by example.
    Blessed are mothers, who shared with us the meaning of peace, they shall know peace.
    Blessed are mothers who taught us the importance of loving God and each other, they shall see God.
