The Virtuous Wife, Proverbs 31, source:

Exalting the Virtues of an Industrious and Resourceful Wife

My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

Jesus has entrusted His Church into our care until He comes again in glory. Are we faithful servants, working for God’s honor and glory?

That is the question ALL the baptized heed to ask of themselves: Clergy, Laity, and Religious.

Today’s first reading exalts the virtues of an industrious and resourceful wife. Women have a natural sense of caring and nurturing service in the community. Pope Francis has recently appointed women to high level positions in the Vatican. Our Diocese has many hard-working women who make things happen. Since coming here to the South Bethlehem parishes, I have noticed the active efforts of our ladies in serving Jesus and His Church.

Let’s not let them do it alone, guys!

Male and female, old and young, rich and poor, we each have a responsibility to use our God-given talents well.

Thank you for all you do!

God bless you!
Fr. Dave
