A Word from our Pastor PDF Print E-mail

Fr. John J. Bucchino, ofm                                                               


We all know a person in our lives with whom we feel so totally comfortable, that we can tell them anything about ourselves and still feel accepted. No matter how small or dark our shameful secret, you can tell that the love for you has not lessened one bit. How do you know? You can see the love for you in their eyes. The eyes never lie. I can remember friends, confessors, councilors and teachers who had the eyes that spoke of acceptance for me when times were rough, and maybe you have too. When that happens, what a gift of love!   In today’s Gospel, Jesus’ eyes speak volumes of acceptance and love for 3 people who were in desperate need. There was the older woman who afflicted with hemorrhages for 12 years; there was the synagogue official in agony over his dying daughter; and then there was the young girl aged 12 who was already dead when Jesus arrived. When his eyes, which are God’s eyes, looked with acceptance and love on these three people, miracles happened. The woman was cured of her affliction because of her faith; the official’s urgent plea to have his daughter healed was granted; the little girl was raised from death. And this was all because of the eyes of Jesus looking upon them. We might think this is a lovely story from the past in the Gospel. But guess again. Jesus’ eyes are still beholding the suffering and needy people of the world even today. How so? He uses your eyes and my eyes as his vehicles to spread God’s acceptance and love. Jesus needs us. And so remember to think about how we use our eyes as we look at other people: are they eyes of suspicion, judgment, resentment, or indifference? Or are they eyes of mercy, tenderness, acceptance, and love?   Take care of your eyes: they are the windows of our souls!!   ~ Fr. John

Open Hours
Sundays: 5pm Tuesdays: 2pm
Wednesdays: 3pm Saturdays: 4pm

The above listed Open Hours are in need of permanent filling. However,

the Chapel on a weekly basis has 15‐20 open hours!!! These hours

are people that are sick, on vacation, snowbirds or may have a Dr. appointment.

It’s getting difficult to find people to fill those open hours

each week. Lent is a wonderful time to spend time in prayer at the

Chapel. Do you have one hour you can give to Jesus this Lent? Please

see the sign up board with open hours in the back of the church or stop

by the Chapel and sign up there.
