This Week Letter – May 17, 2020

Brothers and Sisters,


I would like to talk about hope. It has been important to me ever since I lost my older brother. As a young boy, I could only admire my parents who never lost their hope that they would see him again. In his letter, St. Peter tells us to be always ready to give a reason for our hope to anyone who asks.

God is the cause of our hope.


God loves us. During this Easter season, we celebrate the truth that He loves us very much and that is why He sent his Son to die for us and for our sins, so that we could live forever. If God did not spare His Son for the love of us, could He not give us everything we need for our salvation?

We persist in this hope, even when we suffer. Saint Peter tells us that because of our faith, we will have to suffer, especially if we want to live our faith fully in a world that does not accept it. We will have to explain the reason of our hope to those who are not open to the truth.

Let the Holy Spirit, whom Christ sends, the Spirit of truth, help us in this mission, so that others, seeing our hope, may be brought to God, the source of full hope.


Your Priest,

                                                                                               Fr. Paul
