Epiphany of The Lord

My Dear St. Bernadette Family,

We have made amazing advances in lighting. Not long ago, the light bulb was invented, now with LEDs, CFLs and Halogen bulbs, lighting is more clear, less costly and we can even change the color with an app.

The light of Christ is constant and much brighter. The cost is greater, but a cost He paid for us. But, what about advances in seeing with the Light of Christ. Perhaps we have the same old way of seeing, not bright, but sufficient we think.

The new ways are really new tools for us to discover the light. Tools such as the Scriptures, the Sacraments, the Encyclicals of the Popes, the writings of holy people and the thousands of varieties of prayer that are a part of our wonderful tradition.

New Years are often about resolutions and new beginnings. Perhaps we could embrace a new energy for seeing with the light of Christ.

With love,

Fr. Tom
