Father Bill's Pastor's Corner
June 6 - The center of Catholic and Orthodox prayer life is the Eucharist. Jesus wanted to guarantee that we would never be left to our own devices. Consequently, He allowed us to re-live the Last Supper for 2,000 years with Him in attendance. His Body and Blood transcend symbols of his presence. We proudly proclaim that Christ is alive in the bread and wine. John's Gospel Ch. 6 written maybe 20 years after Matthew, Mark & Luke stresses to early Christians that Christ is truly there on the altar. So, we genuflect and receive Him into our hands with reverence.

Father Bill's Pastor's Corner
May 23 - So many people are looking for authenticity, energy and consistency from communities of believers. They want to see that our words are matched by actions. The world is sick of hypocrites who hold everyone else to a different standard. At Pentecost, we were armed with gifts and strengths of the Holy Spirit that could enable us to inspire a jaded world. But we must enlist them and with enthusiasm. In this past week, we have been given another chance at life together. Let's make it impressive.

Father Bill's Pastor's Corner
May 16 - As society and the parishes begin to re-open, I beg you to be gentle with each other. For some it will be too slow and for others, they will flinch when the tape on pews is removed. Especially at church, we should be patient. Also remember that we continue to have many vulnerable people around us. At the very least, most of our children have not been vaccinated. Their parents will be vigilant. So, take a deep breath. After a year of training, our atmosphere of caution will not disappear overnight.
