A message from our Pastor

May 11, 2017

My Dear Parish Family,

Jesus’ claim that he is “the way and the truth and the life” is a sweeping one that dares us to see Jesus as everything we need to come to the fullness of risen life ourselves. The “way” is not always appealing – dying to ourselves, self-emptying for the sake of others. The good news and truth is that we follow Jesus’ way in less dramatic, everyday ways. Our simple acts of reaching out to others, alleviating their suffering, or eliminating their need (whatever it might be) is how we follow Jesus’ way. But more: this is how we ourselves become the way! As we do Jesus’ works, we become more like him – we take on his care, his love, his passion for others. As we do his works, we ourselves become the way to the Father for others. No greater work can we do!

In Christ’s Peace,

Fr. Walter
