From the Pastor
on 06/23/2016  

The Second part of the Gospel this weekend is filled with excuses (cf. Lk 9:57-62). The excuses are varied, but each of them are excuses. The question before us today is simple: What are the excuses I am making to not follow the Lord? My brothers and sisters, maybe we have made an excuse as to why we do not assist at (or even attend) Mass weekly—“I am too busy.” Why we are choosing not to listen to a particular teaching of the Church—“the Church is wrong!” Or maybe why we do not pray—“I never hear the voice of God.” Many of us have other excuses as well as to why we struggle but my challenge for us all today is quite simple: Be the solution not the excuse!

Here is what I want us to do this week—find someone who has not been going to Church and invite them back; or volunteer at the Oktoberfest and be a witness for the Church; or commit one hour a week in the adoration chapel and pray for someone. My friends, God does not need our excuses; rather, He needs our resolve to follow Him. This week I pray that we will cease making excuses and begin to follow the Lord.

The Lord Bless You and Keep you,

Fr. Kalista
