From Our Pastor

Dear Folks,

It is with sadness that we have to announce postponing our event with Dr. Ricardo Castañón Gómez about Eucharistic Miracles. Because of health issues for him, we are going to need to reschedule this event for the spring. I am so grateful that the need to reschedule didn’t arise at the last second, but also that this will give us some more time to promote this event beyond our parish!

It is always a wonderful thing to be able to contemplate the wonders and miracles of Our Lord. That He has given us such wonders is a lovely gift, and can confirm, strengthen, and encourage us in living our Catholic Faith! Our faith is not because of miracles, but they serve as a constant reminder that the Lord loves us and is even willing to break through the clouds of our doubt, and confusion with supernatural interventions into our daily lives.

Yes, Our Lord said, “Blessed are those who believe without seeing,” as He was letting St. Thomas the Apostle put his finger into His wounds and His hand into His side! If your faith is strong, then rejoice at Our Lord’s willingness to peel back the curtain of the Eucharistic Mystery for His children whose faith is in need. And thank Dr. Gomez for responding to this invitation from Our Lord to make His Eucharistic Miracles known.

As soon as we have dates, we will let you know when we reschedule this event for the spring. Please pray for Dr. Ricardo’s full recovery of health!

Also, next weekend is our Parish Life Weekend! This is always a great opportunity to get to know ministries and the wonderful volunteers who help to make things happen here in the parish! The pandemic has been hard on our volunteer corps. We have all formed so many new habits, and also have widely varied perception and tolerance of risk as pertains to the waning pandemic.

This coming week we are asking you to look at the ministry booklet that was recently mailed to parish families, and ask yourself, “where does the Lord want me to contribute to the wellbeing of parish and city? Where can I help with the time, talent, and treasure that the Lord has given me and for which I will render an account to Him on the great day to come?”

Pax,

Father John Mosimann

Eucharistic Miracles Talk Postponed

Unfortunately, due to a serious illness, Dr. Ricardo Castañón Gómez will be unable to travel to the United States for his scheduled talk at the Fred Nats stadium on October 23.  He is currently in the hospital and expected to remain there for some time.  Please keep Dr. Gómez in your prayers. Dr. Gómez has expressed a desire to still come and talk to our community when he is well, and we are tentatively planning on having him come out in the spring of 2022.
