The end of July is upon us, and still there still seem to be more questions than answers with Covid-19. Texting with a friend in NYC a few weeks ago about our current way of living including Covid 19 precautions and their impact, things like masks, crowds, social distancing, the weather, anger, anxiety, fear, uncertainty, Mass and Sacraments, we realized how present Jesus is in the essentials and how much we need to lean on Jesus right now. And we joked, but it is so true, with Jesus, especially now, no social distancing is necessary, Jesus is right here with us arm in arm through the journey. I pray the timeless words of St. Paul in today’s 2nd reading: “brothers and sisters, we know all things work for good for those who love God, who are called according to His purpose” continue to strengthen our faith, especially in the midst of life’s anxieties and struggles.
Our Parish Pastoral Team is here to serve you, and I am always only a phone call away. We are all in this journey together because we are linked arm in arm with Lord.
Be assured of my continued prayers and support for you and your loved ones
God bless, Carl
(Reverend Carl Janicki)
