From the Pastor's Desk


 My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

   The phrase "eternal life" appears at the beginning of this weekend's Gospel and also at the end of the Gospel in Jesus' promise of a hundredfold reward for His disciples. In between comes the invitation to renounce anything that keeps us from surrendering to God's action to bring about the Kingdom. Our cooperation with God to bring about God's reign is the same as seeking eternal life. The fullness of the Kingdom is eternal life.

   Sometimes the dispossession we need to consider most seriously has nothing to do with material possessions. At times, we need to dispossess ourselves of our own opinions so that we might listen more carefully to what another is saying. Perhaps we need to dispossess ourselves of prejudice or obstinacy or gossip or rigidness or arrogance or ... And so, the question we need to ask ourselves, "to what are we clinging?" To what are we running towards? Hopefully the answer is "Eternal Life."

   May Saint Michael the Archangel defend, guide, protect, and intercede for us always!

Fr. Larry
