A Message from Father Nathan

My dearest people who are all close to my heart!

Prayerful Greetings!

I hope you guys are safe and healthy…

I am receiving these days tones of positive comments about all that’s happening in the church and in keeping the church moving forward.  Thank you.  As I always repeat them to you, it’s our family and my family.  I feel that I have to do it for my family.  Thank you though.  Please do remember to pray for me.  I can take any amount of prayers.  Thank you.

Parking Lot mass continues

I am impressed through the deacon and a few of the people of our parish that many people are making good use of the park lot facility to attend Mass.  God bless you.  I am extremely happy about it.

I believe these days the death rates have gone down which makes me happy, but at the same time, the people who are affected by it are on an increase…I am not sure what the reason is but still let us be a little more responsible.

Communion

Again I am requesting you in case if there is someone who wants Communion, please let me know, we can take care of them.  We have the obligation to take good care of them hence please let me know.  Please be safe.

Words From Mother Theresa

I wanted to quote a few of the beautiful words of wisdom of Mother Theresa.

“Loneliness and the feeling of being unwanted is the most terrible poverty”.

We all can experience that in our lives – the pain, the loneliness.  We must have the courage to recognize it.

“It is easy to love the people far away.  It is not always easy to love those close to us.  It is easier to give a cup of rice to relieve hunger than to relieve the loneliness and pain of someone unloved in our own home.  Bring love into your home for this is where our love for each other must start.”

 

One of the negative effects of this pandemic situation is that it made us think we are lonely and sick, it’s so true if you are homebound and all by yourself.

I do understand but remember, our God is there to love you and to be on your side.

We are called to cling to Him..even if you are living with your family, it’s a little tougher to be lovable and kind to your family 24/7…it’s tough but it’s the cross we are called to carry.  May the Lord bestow the strength to handle the situation.

God bless you all.

– With lots of love and blessing,
Ever at your service.
