THE PADRE'S PORTION 

Brothers and Sisters; “The Price I paid for going to the Mission”. Is this a strange statement? Well, everything in life is in motion; every decision to act, or to not act, involves a price. When Fr. Ricardo was here, he gave the typical Masses for the weekend. That was great because “I” could do my normal visit to Church, and nothing was out of the normal routine. What happens to us if we did not attend the Sunday night Mission, but did the normal routine? Well, we missed out on what happened at the Mission. What did you gain? We kept our normal Sunday night activities. What about the other evenings? Wow, what a dent they were in ‘my normal’ routine! Holy Person, fear not! Life is a teeter-totter. If I lose something, there is always a replacement. What I lost by not staying home, I gained by going out. We think we know best how to run our lives. How un-Biblical can this be? Do sheep really have no need of a Shepherd? Praise to God when He ‘gets us’ to a Mission, and we find out that what we lost by not keeping our normal routine, we GAINED by experiencing something that enriched us - both today and forever.                                                                                                                                 Fr. David Tate                                                                                    Parish Administrator
