A Message from Father Nathan

My dearest people who are close to my heart.

“God found everything good”

Labor Day pays tribute to the contributions and achievements of American workers and as we know is traditionally observed on the first Monday in September.  Dedicated in honor of the worker, it is also appropriately called the “workingman’s holiday”.  

The holiday is dedicated in respect and appreciation for the work we do in or outside our home, organization, union, non-union, big company, small companies or government.  As long as you work somewhere at something, this holiday is for you!  

May God bless all those who put their sweat and hard work for the good of others, community and above all for the good of this Nation.  God bless them all.  Please enjoy this holiday.  

The Importance of the Mass and the Eucharist.

I wanted to bring to your attention on how our Blessed Mother Holy Catholic Church so beautifully teaches us about Mass Vatican II. Each word is awesome.

THE EUCHARIST – SOURCE, AND SUMMIT OF ECCLESIAL LIFE

The Eucharist is “the source and summit of the Christian life.”

“The other sacraments and indeed all ecclesiastical ministries and works of the apostolate are bound up with the Eucharist and are oriented towards it.  For in the blessed Eucharist is contained in the whole spiritual good of the Church, namely Christ himself, our Pasch.”

“The Eucharist is the efficacious sign and sublime cause of that communion in the divine life and that unity of the People of God of which the Church is kept in being.  It is the culmination of both of God’s action sanctifying the world in Christ and of the worship, men offer to Christ and through him to the Father in the Holy Spirit. “

Finally, by the Eucharistic celebration, we already unite ourselves with the heavenly liturgy and anticipation of eternal life, when God will be all in all.

In brief, the Eucharist is the sum and summary of our faith: “Our way of thinking is attuned to the Eucharist, and the Eucharist, in turn, confirms our way of thinking.

Having learned the greatness of the Mass and celebrating the Eucharist, let us take the honor to come for Mass.  Please bring your friends and family for this great banquet.  

I believe most of you could make it for everyday Mass, every day.  God bless them.  I would encourage every one of you also to come for the Mass every day.  We need that spiritual food.

If you are not able to be here for Mass.  Please pray….Pray a lot.  

May our life circle around God through our prayers.  

Let us pray for each other.  Let us pray for our community.  Let us pray for our nation.  

Prayer can do wonders in the world.  Please pray

God bless you all.

My humble prayers for you all.

With lots of love and ever at your service

Fr. Sahayanthan Nathan
