From the Pastor

11th Sunday in Ordinary Time


My Dear St. Bernadette Family,

Jesus invites us today to take a look at and learn from nature. A great summer time activity. If you get the chance, go out into the countryside, see the fields, watch the farmers, smell the livestock. God’s gifts ought not be taken for granted.

We learn from nature the way God works, often behind the scenes, quietly growing the kingdom. God nurtures us not only with food, but with sunshine, rain, beauty and quiet and with the Son, the church, the Scriptures and Sacraments. Often, though, so subtlety and consistently that we might just not notice and worse, not feel deep gratitude.

The field and farmer are totally dependent on the moisture God sends. The young lamb cannot even survive on its own, let alone thrive. So, we too, are totally dependent on God. We depend not only on the “things” God gives us such as life, air, water, food, etc., but are also dependent on God’s love, mercy and grace. Our Collect prayers says: “without you mortal frailty can do nothing.” Mortal frailty, that’s us.

We sing in the Psalm: “Lord, it is good to give thanks to you.” Indeed!

With love,

Fr. Tom
