From the Pastor's Desk

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

An Excuse

Some people do not commit themselves to mission because they think that nothing will change and that it is useless to make the effort.  They think: “Why should I deny myself my comforts and pleasures if I won’t see any significant result?”  This attitude makes it impossible to be a missionary.  It is only an excuse for remaining caught up in comfort, laziness, vague dissatisfaction, and empty selfishness.  Do you lack faith that God can change a situation? Examine your life right now.  What prevents you from being a strong witness for him?  What excuses are you making?  Trust in the power of God to change you and the people around you.  —Pope Francis “A Year of Mercy”
