Dear Parishioners and Visitors,
"Come to me all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest." These encouraging and comforting words Jesus offers are also a mission call for us to say Jesus' words to our neighbor who is exhausted, depressed, stressed out, or otherwise in need of solace, healing, compassion, and mercy. As disciples we are in Christ and of Christ in our world to unburden others and not bind them up with judgment, biases, neglect, or shame. Am I committed to the alleviation of suffering in another even in the midst of my own suffering and deficiencies?
In Christ, who helps carry our burdens through each other,
-fr. Chris, O.P.
