My Dear Parish Family,

How much time does it take for grape mash to be fermented into good wine? How much time does it take for a caterpillar to become a butterfly? How much time does it take for a tiny acorn to become a mighty oak? Real transformation takes time. But the time involved is less critical than the change this time brings about. The transformation to which Jesus calls us in this Gospel takes a lifetime of time. We learn only slowly to accept the demands of discipleship. We embrace the Gospel challenge because Jesus has promised that those who serve, lose their life, and die will be given fullness of life and a share in his glory. And this transformation is worth all the time it takes.

In Christ’s Peace,

Fr. Walter
