Text Box: Sunday Scripture 
Do the lives we live model how we prepare the way of the Lord or beware of the way of the Lord?

       Whatever our spiritual state, we can be assured that Jesus came to save all humanity, including us. God's grace and mercy enable us to cry out in our modern deserts, making straight our paths by loving our neighbor, welcoming the stranger and serving the poor. This good fruit is the evidence of our repentance and spiritual growth 

       The stump of Jesse will blossom and the spirit of the Lord will rest upon the anointed one–the promised Savior will come. We endure, are encouraged and live in harmony when we are in Christ. John preaches about preparing the way of the Lord. His voice bears witness to Christ through his preaching, baptizing and martyrdom.

This week’s second collection will be for Religious Retirement. Last week’s 2nd collection for the Building Fund totaled  $1,104.00.  Next week’s 2nd collection will be for the Catholic Voice assessment.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT! 

MAY GOD REWARD YOUR GENEROSITY.
