Blocks to Growth
From the Desk of Father David
Dear Friends in Christ,
Today’s Gospel asks us to take seriously the call to deepen our relationship with Christ. To “cut off” all the things that block us from growing closer to Jesus. Maybe some of these things are our busy schedule, anger, lukewarmness, worries, or our concern for the future. What in your life is blocking you from growing? The Apostles and Saints teach us by their example to always be concerned about helping others find Christ. How can we help each other to become more holy, more completely devoted to Jesus? May we start by praying for and encouraging all those we meet.
I hope you will come to the Day of Recollection honoring the Holy Family, Jesus, Mary and Joseph. It is a way to support one another and to grow closer to Christ. See the details to the left.
May the Holy Family surround our families in their loving embrace and bring our families the peace and strength they need.
In Christ’s peace,
