Message from Our Pastor

It is hard to imagine the summer months of vacation for so many of the young members of our congregation are coming to an end. As a former school teacher this was always an exciting time of the year as we prepared our rooms for the new students and the joy of new learning.

As we prepare, as a parish community, for the fall season with the many new and exciting things at our parish we too are invited to prepare the room of our hearts for God’s presence as we learn and grow faith and knowledge of his generous and abounding love.

Last week I invited us to take time in prayer with Our Blessed Mother through the Rosary, St. John Paul II reminded us of how Mary grew in understanding by treasuring the Word of Jesus and filling her soul with God’s grace. He writes “Mary lived with her eyes fixed on Christ, treasuring his every word: “She kept all these things, pondering them in her heart” (Lk 2:19; cf. 2:51). The memories of Jesus, impressed upon her heart, were always with her, leading her to reflect on the various moments of her life at her Son's side. In a way those memories were to be the “rosary” which she recited uninterruptedly throughout her earthly life.” (#11)

As children of Mary, we too are cherish the memories of our faith in praying with Mary through her gift of the rosary. Sister Lucia dos Santos one of the children who witnessed the apparition of our Blessed Mother at Fatima 100 years ago told us this about the rosary, “The Most Holy Virgin in these last times in which we live has given a new efficacy to the recitation of the rosary to such an extent that there is no problem, no matter how difficult it is, whether temporal or above all spiritual, in the personal life of each one of us, of our families…that cannot be solved by the Rosary. There is no problem, I tell you, no matter how difficult it is, that we cannot resolve by the prayer of the Holy Rosary.”

Let us place our joys, our hopes and our struggles at the feet of Jesus through the prayer of Our Blessed Mother. Let us together and always pray; All for Jesus through Mary.

God bless

Fr. Mark
