Pastor's Column

April 15, 2018

Dear Parish Family:

The Scriptures for this third Sunday of Easter reaffirm the “witness” of the patriarchs and the prophets of old and the commission of believers in the Risen Lord to “witness” the truth of the resurrection. Any student of early Christian art and literature would learn that the greatest impact on the faith of this persecuted minority within the Roman Empire was their profound adherence to the “fact” of the resurrection. What difference does this make for our faith? If we truly believe in God’s victory over sin and death, our minds must convince our hearts that there is always hope despite depressing and discouraging circumstances. I would suggest that a faith perspective ought to influence our decisions when we are confronted with competing value systems in our daily lives. Perhaps the best economic or career enhancing decision is not consistent with the basic principles of faith. Wherein do I get the wisdom and courage to choose correctly? The same Risen Jesus who shared a meal with his apostles invites us into intimate communion every day and urges us:

Do not be afraid!

Yours in Him,
Father Bill Foley
