From the corner office for Feb. 11, 2024

From the Corner Office is Father Mike's weekly bulletin column.

The readings this week continue with the theme of “healing” and “living out the Gospel of Christ”. St. Paul encourages us to, “Be imitators of me, as I am of Christ.” Not in a selfish or pompous means, but to show how we are to live for the glory of God, and not us in a human sense. We need to be imitators of Christ, and the easiest way is to look at the saints, those who have gone before us – imitating Christ, for the glory of God. The First Reading and the Gospel speak more of the disease of leprosy in the time of Jesus but can we imagine Jesus dealing with this matter now in our times? We might feel like the person with leprosy in our lives or we may even find ourselves treating others in our lives as if they are the ones with leprosy. Two very tough examinations of conscience exercises… But let us do remember whichever side of the matter we are on – Jesus is the one who reaches out to us! Jesus does want to reach out to heal us and care for all of us, so we can be like all the saints (big “S” and small “s”) and give glory to God!

From the Pastor’s Desk:

This was a very quick dash to the season of Lent, which starts this week with Ash Wednesday. We need to give a special thanks to those volunteers who have been cleaning the church and working with the arts and environment, to keep us all in a prayer-full space. The second “Thank YOU” goes out to all the volunteers and helpers with Mardi Gras. The evening was much fun, as we were able to gather together, to both fundraise and have fun! Thanks!
