Our faith in a Triune God offers us a pathway home to the Father, to the Son and to the Holy Spirit. Today, the Church celebrates the Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity. As we profess in our creed, we believe in one God, the Father almighty, in Jesus Christ his only begotten Son and in the Holy Spirit, the Lord and Giver of life. One God in three persons, in perfect, right relationship with one another. The three Scripture texts for our Mass today gives us insight into that Triune God, and demonstrate some of how they relate to us: the Wisdom of God, the human and divine natures of Jesus through whom we have peace with God, and the Holy Spirit of truth. In the totality of Scripture, we can see the hand of our Triune God as he loves and cares for us. So as we celebrate this doctrine of our faith, let us give thanks for the mystery of our redemption by God, through Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit. Let us give thanks for this divine outpouring of pure gift for our sake. And may we respond by glorifying God by living in right relationship with him and with one another.
May I please ask that you help us reach our annual HOPE Appeal assessment ($77,950.00). Every gift helps us reach our goal and this will be of kind assistance for our new pastor. Each gift helps someone who is in need in our diocese.
Please continue to pray for vocations to the Priesthood for our diocesan church. And also in your kind prayers remember to pray for a healing of all our sick who are homebound or hospitalized and their families.
Remember God loves you and so do I.
Peace and Joy,
****The farewell from our parish for Msgr. Kennedy and Father Hearn will take place after each of the Masses on the weekend of June 30th. We will enjoy coffee/tea and pastries in the church hall with all of you.
