May Jesus Christ, who calls us to holiness, be with you!
Today we celebrate Independence Day. It is a day that we should not take for granted. Our independence from England was fought with conviction and the ability to stand alone from the colonization of England. With our independence from England, the united States developed into a powerful country, who is also sought after for its strength and multiple resources. Thinking of our country we are, in spite of our recent frailties and bruised history. Happy fourth of July. Enjoy this special day of the life and history of the United States.
Hopefully, many of you should have received a letter informing everyone about our Parish Capital Campaign. This campaign will focus on restoring the convent which has been renamed the St. Katherine Drexel Parish Center. Our goal is to raise $50,000. Several fund raising projects will assist in reaching this goal. I encourage everyone to participate in this campaign. Your stewardship is very important.
Our readings for today’s Mass speaks about faith. It is said of Jesus: “He was amazed at their lack of faith.” Jesus does not heal people in order that they will believe in Him. Rather, Jesus heals those whose faith drives them to approach Him with the assurance that He has the power to change their lives. May we have faith in Jesus in order to receive any kind of healing.
