Please pray for me and the team from Catholic Family Center as we travel to Texas and Arizona this week to help Catholic Charities USA care for the needs of the refugees and immigrants coming into the US. This has been in the news so much that it is easy to politicize it. Please resist that temptation. Our faith calls us to do whatever we can to care for the most vulnerable in our society. Please pray for our leaders to be enlightened with solutions that meet the needs of everyone. I look forward to sharing the experience upon my return!
Peace and love,
Our Contemporary Music Ministry will be leading the music at the 5:00pm Mass on Saturday, August 31
The readings for this Mass instruct us to be humble “and you will be loved more than a giver of gifts.” Humility is not a passive thing – it should result in actions of love and charity. Jesus, our great teacher, leading by example “humbled himself and carried the cross. Love so amazing.” Jesus surrendered to the Father for our sakes, as we should do. Nothing to fear. Our God is “rich in mercy”. Our strength to do His will comes only through humility. One who is humble is strong. Jesus, I trust in you.
We will sing these songs to remind us of our need for God and humility:
Gracefully Broken - Matt Redman w/ Tasha Cobbs Leonard
Jesus Messiah - Chris Tomlin
Lord, I Need You - Matt Maher
Scars - I AM THEY
At Your Feet - Anna Conti
Alive - Big Daddy Weave
“Humble yourself the more, the greater you are, and you will find favor with God.” Sirach 3:18
