Happy New Year!

With God in our midst, the unknown of the new year gives us HOPE

 

THE PADRE'S PORTION 

Dear Brother and Sisters; Are you confused during this time of year as we try to absorb (roll with the punches?) the various seasonal events: Advent, Christmas, Christmastide, Ending of a calendar year; Beginning of a calendar year, as well as the continuing possible winter weather conditions? Please take comfort that there are things that offer a therapeutic unchanging rhythm: our rising in the morning, our going to sleep at night, meals, the unending needs of our children, and the presence of the Sunday Masses, and days of celebration of the Saints, Mary Our Blessed Mother, and the various feast days. Every January 3rd, there is an optional memorial for the “Most Holy Name of Jesus”. It was important that Joseph and Mary name Him Jesus, because that was the instruction of the Angel Gabriel. (Mt 1:21; Lk 1:31) Later on, we see Paul write this, “at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord.” Isn’t it wonderful that we know the Name of God’s Son, our Redeemer and LORD.                                                                                                                                                         Fr. David "Per" Tate                                                                                  Parish Adminstrator
