This Week Letter – March 26, 2017

Dear Parishioners and Friends, One of the most favorite images of the early Christians was the image of light and darkness. From it begins the second reading of the fourth Sunday of Lent: “For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light,” (Eph 5: 8). This.. read more →

Dear Parishioners and Friends,   The theme of today’s readings and Gospel is the word desire, occurring in different contexts, different meanings, not only literally, but also spiritually.  The Book of Exodus shows God’s care over the people of Israel, Moses’ actions and his agreement with God.

Dear Parishioners and Friends,   During the Transfiguration on Mount Tabor the face of Jesus shone with the brightness of the sun. The sun gives light, gives life, and energy.

Dear Parishioners and Friends, Let’s try, on the first Sunday of Lent, to rediscover the timeliness of today’s Gospel about the temptation of Jesus with regard to our personal and social life.

Dear Parishioners and Friends, Jesus asks to cut off the sources of sin and used a strong analogy: “If your hand is the cause of sin, cut it off, if your eye is the cause of sin, pluck it out and throw it away.” (Mt. 5: 29-30). We know well that He does not mean.. read more →

Dear Parishioners and Friends,   Every man, especially a Christian, must see that he has his own unique life, vocation and tasks. We see our life as a journey full of people, desires, events, words, and characters. God has given us life as a “task” to follow on the way of salvation, in cooperation with.. read more →

Dear Parishioners and Friends, The beatitudes are an abridged version of the tasks that Jesus put before us: discover in your misfortune the deepest joy through Me! The sad can find authentic consolation, if instead of running away from distress, they embrace it and bless God for what they have received from life. It’s not.. read more →
