“Peace be with you. As the Father has sent Me, so I send you.”
“Whose sins you forgive are forgiven them, and whose sins you retain are retained.” “Receive the Holy Spirit.”
“…and do not be unbelieving, but believe.”
These Jesus quotes are from John’s Gospel (John 20:19-31) account of the gathering Jesus had with His Apostles soon after His Resurrection. How powerful. How inspiring. How encouraging. How challenging. How direct. How clear.
For all of us who carry a burden of sin, we KNOW that Jesus has given our priests the authority to forgive our sins. The Sacrament of Reconciliation is another of Jesus’ most precious gifts to us. He gives us the opportunity to seek and find new spiritual life. With His gift of Himself in Holy Eucharist, The Real Presence of Jesus, we nourish our soul. With His gift of Reconciliation, we cleanse our soul. Thank you Jesus.
And, these gifts of Jesus are not for us to hoard just for ourselves … He did indeed “send” us to spread His Word through our actions of love.
We’re a week after Easter. This is the Sunday of Divine Mercy. May we all believe in and receive Jesus full measure of Divine Mercy through the Sacraments of Eucharist and Reconciliation. May His peace be with each of us as we enjoy the glorious gifts He gave.
Keep the Faith. Grow the Faith. Grow your Faith. Believe. “My Lord and my God!”
Thank you Father Dennis, Father Larry, Father Bishop, Deacons, Parish Staff and all who worked to give us all such beautiful liturgy during Easter. The Holy Thursday, Good Friday, Easter Vigil, and Easter Sunday liturgies were wonderful.
Welcome to Tom, Jennifer, Jenny, and Alan who joined our Church through RCIA.
Rest in Peace dear friend Bob Meyer.

HOW is nothing fancy but it is really good fellowship, Faith, friends, food, silence, prayer, conversation. HOW is the Holy Spirit working in your life? !
