“It is in pardoning that we are pardoned.” -St. Francis

Pastor’s Desk



The end is near! In today’s Gospel, Jesus seems to describe precisely what Daniel’s vision will look like: “In those days after that tribulation the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will be falling from the sky, and the powers in the heavens will be shaken” (Mark 13:24-25).

In Christ, this time has already begun.  We can heal broken hearts, free captives, spread the Good News. At Mass we join as an assembly to recall and to claim the story of Jesus as our own. Together we give thanks to God for the many gifts bestowed upon us.
