It is important to remember as we end... and begin a new year...
By the grace of our Good God we are very, very blessed!
We have new members, we have young people & we have senior citizens. We have worked and are working on a “bunch” of projects. We think about the past & the future and we work on the present.
In a spiritually confused world, we are remaining faithful to our Lord’s Eternal Church. The Church and the Faith has many enemies, just look at what has happened in the Middle East to the Christians who “used to” live there only 2-3 years ago!
Yet St. Stephen the first martyr prayed for his enemies as they stoned him to death (there is nothing new under the sun):
“Lord, do not hold this sin against them.” And when he had said this, he fell asleep. (Act 7:60)
This is our Inheritance, This is our Faith, This is the Faith of the Prophets, This is the Faith of the Apostles & the Fathers. This is our Faith.
As many years as we have on this earth, may they be Spiritually always productive!
A Blessed THEOPHANY & NEW YEAR
