Weekly thoughts and announcements from our Pastor, Fr. Tom Lewandowski.

Love Yourself!

No matter what, love yourself.  Love yourself, even if it feels like the world around you is irked with you.  Even if it feels like those you’ve counted on most have gone away.  Even if you wonder if God has abandoned you.  When it feels like the journey has stopped, the magic is gone and you’ve been left sitting on the curb, love yourself.  When you are confused or angry about how things are going or how they’ve gone, love yourself.  No matter what happens or where you are, love yourself.  No matter if you aren’t certain where you are going or if there’s anyplace left to go, love yourself.

This situation will change, this time will pass, and the magic will return.  So will joy and faith.  You will feel connected again – to yourself, God, the universe and life.  But the first thing to do is love yourself and all the good will follow.
