This week's Bulletin: 070713_-_Fourteenth_Sunday_in_Ordinary_Time_final.pdf
Dear friends in Christ,
Peace be with you! Here we are at the beginning of a new adventure in life. We enter into this adventure with faith, hope and love, knowing that God is with us --- knowing that God has a plan for all of us. I hope that we all take part in God’s plan with great enthusiasm and excitement. We do not know what awaits us, but we do know that if we all cooperate with God’s Will, everything will be for the good and betterment of our life and the lives of all our parishioners. May we all work together to fulfill His Divine Plan in our parishes of Sts. Cyril and Methodius and Holy Trinity.
In today’s Gospel, Jesus sends out the seventy-two to proclaim that the Kingdom of God is at hand for all the people. You and I are sent out each week to proclaim that same Kingdom of God and to let people know that they are called to be part of His Kingdom. We are all called to give witness to the joy of being disciples of Jesus Christ. We are also called to invite others into the Kingdom and into a life of discipleship. We can only do this if we ourselves are living in the life of Jesus. This takes a life of prayer and faithfulness to God. May we all be those faithful witnesses and help everyone to know that a life in Christ is a life worth living and that it is the ultimate calling for each and every person. So go and proclaim God’s Kingdom and help others to know His love.
May all of you have a most blessed week.
Fr. Stephen Nesrsta, farář
