Dear Parishioners and Visitors,
The imaginary character of Jesus' parable is a sly, yet dishonest steward who lacks any semblance of responsibility, gratefulness, or prudence; in a word, he looks out for himself, only.
The real characters of Holy Rosary parish are, at our best, stewards of the mission to act responsibly, gratefully, and with loving mercy and kindness on behalf of one another in the joys, difficulties, and outright painful challenges and sufferings we encounter.
We have recently celebrated Baptisms, First Holy Communions, Confirmations, Marriages, Holy Orders, Funeral Liturgies, and Confessions and Holy Eucharists - weekends and weekdays. We have celebrated 25th Wedding & Priesthood anniversaries, several galas, Solemnities, gardening ministries (Hortus Novus), religious education and scripture studies, singing and cooking, nourishment of those encountering unemployment, psychological & drug troubles due to living on the street, and a host of other graced activities, including an increasing amount of baby showers.
As a growing and thriving parish we must create time to reflect upon our experiences, common & private, so as to notice and to neglect not the extravagant graces poured out upon us. Without consistent prayer & reflection amidst the graced events of our lives in Christ, we are prone to live selfish lives, which ensures that greedy sin will enslave our hearts. May we strive to become ever more free from manipulation of God and others.
Tn Christ, our Holy Teacher,
-fr. Chris, O.P.
