Hope

01-29-2023Fr. Matthew R. Paratore, S.T.L., J.C.L.

Dear Friend,

What does hope in God do for humanity?

Hope shines brightest when the hour is darkest.
Hope motivates when discouragement comes.
Hope energizes when the body is tired.
Hope sweetens while bitterness bites.

Everyday Stewardship - Recognize God in Your Ordinary Moments

“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” Matthew 5:3

01-29-2023

The phrase “poor in spirit” can be confusing. Think of it in this sense—poor in spirit means depending on God’s providence and not depending on our own self-reliance. Being detached from earthly things (power, money, and comfort) and being attached to heavenly things (charity, sacrifice and mercy). Denying ourselves from satisfying our desires and helping others their basic needs.

Sunday Mass & Holy Day Obligation

It is both a precept of the Church and Church law that Catholics must worship God on Sunday and Holy Days of Obligation by participating in the Holy Mass. This follows from the fact that in the Mass it is Christ Himself who worships the Father, joining our worship to His. In no other way is it possible to adequately give thanks (eucharistia) to God for the blessings of creation, redemption and our sanctification than by uniting our offerings to that of Jesus Christ Himself.

As an appreciative Catholic Community of Faith, Our Lady of Peace parishioners pray for our military, police, fire-fighters, first-responders and all who serve in local, state and national security services.
