This Week Letter – November 11, 2018

From the Pastor’s Desk Today’s Gospel gives evidence that of prime importance for Christ  is what is hidden in a person’s heart.  As an example today, we are given the poor widow whose temple offering was viewed by others to be not much, but according to Christ outweighed the other contributions because she gave all.. read more →

From the Pastor’ Desk During the past week we celebrated the Solemnity of All Saints.  This feast reminds us that our primary vocation is to attain sainthood.  But how can we do this?  The answer to this question can be found in today’s Gospel in the commandment of the love of God and neighbor.  Saints.. read more →

From the Pastor’s Desk We do not know how long Bartimaeus, the blind beggar, sat by the wayside asking for alms.  In a certain sense, he had sat there all his life waiting for that one Passerby, for only his meeting with Jesus changed his fate.  Only He who restored his eyesight and showered him.. read more →

From the Pastor ‘s Desk      All is not well with the world where everything is fleeting, unreal and experimental, to the point of boredom.  It is not good for man to be alone; so said God and he gave Adam a partner in the person of Eve.  Eve was the answer to man’s loneliness, the.. read more →

This Week Letter – September 30, 2018

From the Pastor’s Desk It is worth everything to avoid evil so as not to be a source of scandal, and above all else, to remain faithful to Jesus. At times, this loyalty comes at a very high price; as when a severing must be so radical and painful, that its strong comparison to Christ’s.. read more →

This Week Letter – September 23, 2018

From The Pastor’s Desk… While Christ tells the Apostles about the passion awaiting him, they argue about which one of them is the most important. Pride makes man a very weak, egocentric being, who seeks comfort and runs away from hardship and suffering. Jesus teaches us that the true greatness of a person consists in.. read more →

From the Pastors Desk… The Holy Church has survived many historical storms and still exists because it works under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit and is built on the foundation of the Apostles. The Church, to realize its mission of world evangelization, must have its own plan and structure. The Archdiocese of Chicago recently.. read more →
