May Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of the Father, be with you!
Now that the official summer months are over, we slowly enter into the season of Fall. Soon it will get darker quicker, leaves will change colors on trees, and the weather will get cooler. Vacations have come to an end, and all over children have returned to school. Many parish organizations will resume their meetings, planning activities and events for the year. Even in the midst of this pandemic, it is important for life to continue. May we continue to pray for our parish, our families, and our country.
On a personal note, I ask you to also pray for all priests. Our priests, locally, nationally, and globally are experiencing an overload. A recent article was published about the increase stress put on priests, to the point that reports of suicides are being reported more frequently. Without priests, there is no Eucharist. In our daily prayers, I ask you to include the health and spiritual welfare of priests.
Again, I ask you to support the Annual Forty Hours of Eucharistic Devotion at St. Cyprian. This has always been a rich and spiritually uplifting devotion. We give thanks to St. John Neumann for establishing this spiritual devotion.
In our Gospel for today, we hear about St. Peter’s profession of faith. Some people had no faith in Jesus. Others had a mistaken faith. But Peter showed true faith in Jesus when he declared: “You are the Christ, the Son of God.” If the faith is to be alive and influential in our lives, we have to make the faith our own.
Peace and Blessings, Msgr. Britto
