From Our Pastor

Dear Folks,

Today is Mother’s Day! Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers: biological, adoptive, spiritual, godmothers. I assure you of my prayers and blessing. I offer this lovely quote from Joseph Cardinal Mindszenty:

“The most important person on earth is a mother. She cannot claim the honor of having built Notre Dame Cathedral. She need not. She has built something more magnificent than any cathedral——a dwelling for an immortal soul, the tiny perfection of her baby’s body.”

“The Angels have not been blessed with a such a grace. They cannot share in God’s Creative miracle to bring new Saints to Heaven. Only a human mother can. Mothers are closer to God the Creator than any other creatures. God joins forces with mothers in performing this act of creation.”

“What on God’s good earth is more glorious than this: to be a mother?”

Many folks have commented to me that on Easter Sunday they were moved by the beauty of the music throughout the Holy Week. Yet that amazing beauty is ephemeral. However, the beauty of soul loving God is created to endure forever! Thanks moms for all that you do to give us life and lead us to Life Himself. Today we thank you for your love, generosity and faithfulness. Even if we don’t express our love and gratitude daily, you are faithful and treasured. Be strengthened by the grace of God to carry on your vocation. 

Next week we will have our little May Crowning Ceremony at the beginning of Masses. All children of any age will be encouraged to bring forward a flower to be placed at the feet of the statue of Mary. If you would like to have your child participate in the procession, just bring a flower to Mass, and the children will be called back to the vestibule before Mass begins. Children who made (or will make) their first Holy Communion this year, are also encouraged to wear their Holy Communion clothes.

Again moms, we love you and thank God for you.
