THE PADRE'S PORTION 

Dear Brothers and Sisters; Was it not so long ago that we were listening to Christmas carols and enjoying the Midnight Mass? What great joy it was to enter into the amazement of the Three Wise Men of the East when they finally found the Promised One of the Scriptures. “This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.” (Luke 2) Our earthly life teaches us to find joy in this life. How strange that the events of Christmas should be concluded with the Events of Easter. How can this be? It is because the love from God found at Christmas is exceeded by the love of God at Easter. Earthly life is tainted by sin, and the best this world can do is offer short-lived comfort. How much better it is to receive the cure for sin, and allow God to “forgive us our sins, and bring us to everlasting life.” Let us seek the greater joy of God in the Easter Triduum as we learn more and more of the great joy of being led out of the slavery of sin!                                                                                                                                                                         Fr. David "Per" Tate                                                                           Parish Administrator
