Father's Message

Our Lord Jesus Christ expects much of us. We are a community of Saints in Training. Therefore, no stressing, only blessing.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

NOW IS THE TIME TO PRAY!!

In the face of an especially difficult time in all our lives, I pause to remember the sacrifice that our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ suffered for our salvation.   During this time of lent, let go of your fears and rely heavily on your faith.   Find solace in the love of your family and recite the rosary together.  Turn to Our Lady of Peace and to her most precious son, Jesus, to wipe away our tears and give us true comfort and peace.

A Prayer from the Holy Father

"Tonight before falling asleep think about when we will return to the street.

When we hug again, when all the shopping together will seem like a party.

Let's think about when the coffees will return to the bar, the small talk, 

the photos close to each other.

We think about when it will be all a memory but normality wills seem 

an unexpected and beautiful gift.

We will love everything that has so far seemed futile to us.

Every second will be precious.

Swims at the sea, the sun until late, sunsets, toasts, laugher.

We will go back to laughing together.

Strength and courage.

~Pope Francis
