From the Pastor

Nov 16th, 2019 by Parish Office

33rd Sunday in Ordinary Time

My Dear St. Bernadette Family,

Jesus invites us to act out of confidence in Him instead of fear. When we act out of our fears, we often act in a way that is focused on our own well being, whether that is survival or safety, comfort or control. When we can trust in Him, we know that all will be well and we are then free to act with love seeking survival, safety and comfort for others.

In Jesus’ teaching he acknowledges we will see terrible sights and experience awesome sights and signs. Our faith allows us to interpret these things correctly. While lack of faith might see chaos, faith tells us that out of the chaos, God has created and out of death, God gives life.

Malachi speaks of the “sun of justice” which will heal. We now know this is the Son of God and his justice will have the last word.

With love,

Fr. Tom
