From the Pastor

Oct 13th, 2018 by Parish Office

28th Sunday of Ordinary time

My Dear St. Bernadette Family,

For human beings it is impossible, but not for God. “All things are possible for God.”

Would that religion were as simple as obeying a few chosen rules, like the young man in today’s gospel. He obeyed the Commandments and thought that was enough. He really was not expecting Jesus’ answer to his question.

Unfortunately, love (what God really wants from us) is difficult or at best, messy. We experience ourselves coming up short time and again. We’d like to love, but like the young man, we define it too narrowly. Jesus even wants us to love our enemies and give our life in love for the stranger.

Here is where the above quote is such good news. We find it difficult, impossible for us to really love that way. But, God supplies for our failures. God’s love for us is perfect. Empowered by God’s love, we continue to grow in holiness (the ability to love).

With love,
Fr. Tom
