Parishioners For Life—Motivating Members to Help End Abortion

The Creator’s Eternal Dream

Pope Francis, in his Apostolic Exhortation “The Joy of Love,” writes, “The Psalmist says: “You knit me together in my mother’s womb” (Ps 139:13). Every child growing within the mother’s womb is part of the eternal loving plan of God the Father: “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you” (Jer 1:5). Each child has a place in God’s heart from all eternity; once he or she is conceived, the Creator’s eternal dream comes true. Let us pause to think of the great value of that embryo from the moment of conception. We need to see it with the eyes of God, who always looks beyond mere appearances.” (AL, 168)

Catholic Stewardship 2016

A STEWARDSHIP MOMENT

5th Sunday of Easter • April 24th

In today’s Gospel we return to the Last Supper to hear Jesus’ new commandment to love one another. Good stewards, as the recipients of God’s unending love, take this commandment seriously. Though we are reminded of his love throughout the year, it is Jesus’ actions and words during the feast of Passover that show us the extent of his love and the way we too can live a life of stewardship: “… love one another. As I have loved you, so you also should love one another” (John 13:34). Can we accept this commandment from Jesus? Are we able to embrace this kind of discipleship? Can we humbly offer ourselves in loving service to one another?

 

A STEWARDSHIP PRAYER

For April…

Dear Lord, risen Lord, merciful Lord!

The Easter season is filled with your presence, and we come to you in gratitude for the deep and abiding joy you offer us through the promise of your resurrection. Help us hear your call as did Mary Magdalene. Teach us as you did the disciples at Emmaus. Dispel our doubts as you did for Thomas. And reveal yourself to us as you did to your friends from the shore of Lake Tiberius. Make us good stewards of this Easter season. Open our hearts and minds in a special way to the great mystery of your active presence in our lives, and give us the courage to help others discover your presence in their lives. For you are the light of the world. To you, Christ  Jesus, be praise and glory!

Amen!

 

Reflections From Our Pope…

Weekly Reflections from Pope Francis…

April 24th – April 30th

“When someone asks, ‘How does one become a good Christian?’ the answer is simple: do what Jesus says in his discourse on the Beatitudes. The Lord knows sin and grace, and he knows the paths that lead to sin and to grace. ‘Blessed are the merciful, for they will find mercy’ . . . It’s always important to think that we are all an army of forgiven! All of us have been forgiven! And this is why he who takes this path of forgiveness is blessed.”

— Pope Francis
