                                           A Thursday Reflective Moment from Fr. Joe

                                                                   October 16, 2014

Last Sunday, many of you were addressed about the “state” of our parish.  While numbers may never completely capture the health and status of a parish, neither can they be ignored.  They do not lie.  So where do we go from here?

Each Thursday, I will be sending a brief thought for you to reflect upon as we live into our “Strong By 17” project.  How we must begin: With hope and knowing we’ve been called to do this.

As many of you heard (and saw) on Sunday, October 5, Francis of Assisi was pushed by an inner voice:  “Rebuild My Church” is what he was told to do.  This may have begun by meaning physical repair of the chapel structure at San Damiano, but God was also pushing him to be an instrument of growth and reform for His entire Church.  Bring the love of God to all.  Take care of those who lack what we have.  Be at peace with all creation since everything is a gift from the Lord.  You become rich when you give to others.  You become strong when you serve others.

And now in 2014 this is what the Lord is calling us, this parish, to do.  Strong by 17.
