From the Pastor

My Dear St. Bernadette Family,

The narrow door has another name, discipline. We all have good intentions, but it takes self discipline to transform those intentions into life.  We want to pray, but it is not enough of a priority that it comes before many other works during our day.  We want to learn more about our faith, about Jesus, about the Scripture, but we end up mindlessly watching a lot of junk on the TV.

Discipline is putting first things first.  Discipline is managing my life to be the best version of myself I can be.  Discipline and disciple are two words that look a lot alike and are necessarily entwined.  We cannot be a disciple without discipline and being a disciple makes clear what is the most important use of our time.

This is the spirit of the pledge form we are inviting you to fill out and submit to God today.  It is a pledge you are making, freely to make God first in your life.  As you place your commitment before the altar, ask God for the help to lead a disciplined life. With discipline in your life regarding prayer and study, that narrow door will be open wide for you.

With love,

Fr. Tom
