Pastor’s Reflection October 14, 2017

 Twenty-Eighth Sunday In Ordinary Time

No one loved and respected human life more than Jesus. How do we know? As a divine person, he humbled himself, assumed a human nature, and thus became fully human. Furthermore, as an expression of love and mercy, he gave His life as a living sacrifice to save humanity. He gave until it hurt.

Mother Theresa of Calcutta was asked to speak at a National Prayer Breakfast, during the presidency of Bill Clinton. Just a few paces from President Clinton she gave a speech without any notes, straight from her heart, with a peaceful and humble spirit. She spoke like a Saint. Here are some excerpts
