Dear Brothers and Sisters,
As I mentioned to you a few weeks ago beginning this Sunday our children will meet Jesus by partaking in their First Holy Communion. I pray their joy will be contagious.
On October 8th I will confirm over sixty teenagers whose Confirmation was delayed because of the coronavirus. May they use this month to reflect upon receiving the gifts of the Holy Spirit and make the third person of the Most Holy Trinity their spiritual guide and counselor.
This Sunday’s Gospel (Matthew 18:21-35) is about forgiveness. Forgiving others is one of the most difficult tasks to master. The world without forgiveness would be impossible to live in. When we forgive others we experience inner peace and are able to live as God intended.
Enjoy this weekend and do something fun.
With continued prayers,
