Come and join us in person or in spirit and prayer
This week we moved from summer to fall. Weather was a bit cooler. We welcome the change in the seasons as we welcome the changes in our lives. As our daily lives continue to change with new challenges, joys and opportunities we must also adapt to these changes. How do we adapt to these unknown changes that come without us being able to prepare? By renewing daily our faith, reading daily the Gospels' and with daily prayer and reflection we keep our souls fed. Without this nourishment for our souls we become lost, overwhelmed and tempted. Though each season only comes for a while in each year, seasons of our lives can last for a day, a month, a year or a life time.
One season of our life we must embrace for a lifetime. The season of growing in our commitment to follow our Lord, Jesus Christ in our thoughts, in our prayers, in our daily actions and words. The example of the life of St. Francis can reach each of us. Whether the Lord has blessed you with the talent of a person who speaks with wisdom, a person who speaks by example, a person who speaks by actions each of these are the expressions of how St. Francis lived his life. Please join us in proclaiming the Gospel in the talent the Lord blessed you with.
