A Word From Our Pastor

Today’s scripture readings contain a lot of words worth noting. These words of wisdom are worth paying attention to because they guide us with the right direction in life. Every now and then, my Franciscan community sends to all of us friars a publication called Words Worth Noting.  So I thought I would share some of them with you, and let you think about how they apply to your life:

 “There are many things that can be seen only through eyes that have cried.” - Saint Oscar Romero

 “Hardships often prepare ordinary people for an extraordinary destiny.” - C.S.  Lewis

 “Small deeds done are better than great deeds planned.”    - Peter Marshall

 “Success is how high you bounce when you hit bottom.”   - George S. Patton

 “Pure faith believes without seeing or feeling.”   - Jean-Pierre de Caussade

 “No one heals himself by wounding another.”   - Saint Ambrose

 “Friends show their love in times of trouble, not in times of happiness.”       - Euripides

In today’s gospel, Jesus teaches us the Beatitudes. They too are words worth noting.  Jesus reminds us that we are most blessed when we take care of the poor, the hungry, the weeping, the rejected,    and when we work for peace.                                                                               ~ Fr. John 

Pope Francis

God never tires of forgiving us;
we are the ones who tire of
seeking his mercy. ”     

~ Pope Francis
