Message from our Pastor.
Do you ever find yourself wondering what the dark, narrow streets of Bethlehem really must’ve been like on that miraculous night, so long ago? Over time, the world has referred to that night in many ways – beautiful, enchanting – even magical. The truth is, it’s a night that changed the course of human history. The Almighty left the heavens to become one of us, and by doing so, opened doors that you and I would otherwise not be able to enter! The birth of Christ is a sign of the Mercy of the Father. His message shines on our wounded world, consoles the afflicted, and gives hope to the oppressed. May it please God to bring about conversions of hearts in every part of the world!
As we know, the season and celebration doesn’t end with Christmas Day. On the Church’s calendar, Christmas continues until January 13! During that time we will be reminded that another year has ended, and a new one has begun. As we stand on the threshold of 2019 we are reminded that what Scripture says about the “passing of time” is true – every word of it. Three of them stand out to me:
Time passes quickly
The time to express your love to family and friends is now. Now.
As mortals, our time is best spent storing up treasure that will matter in the life to come. (Mt. 6:20) When visiting deathbeds, never does a priest hear: “Father, I regret not having spent more time at the office”. ☺
Lastly, I’d like to take this opportunity to say thank you to the 31 employees of All Saints Catholic Parish and School. I get to see firsthand, how they put everything they’ve got into their work. It’s obvious to me, that our staff have a love for Christ’s Church! A big thank you to Deacon Jim Hoegemeier (and to the Diocese for giving us his assistance). Deacon is a pleasure to work with, and I feel is a blessing to us all. Good work Deacon! Finally, to all our parishioners- both adult and youth, who help in anyway: the list is long, and the tasks are varied, but all of them for the glory of Christ and the good of His Church. God sees your works and may he bless you for it!
