Martha & Mary with Jesus

Having a Guest in the House

My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ!

There is an old Polish proverb that states: “Having a guest in the house is like having God in the house”. This expresses sincere sentiments of Christian hospitality, but something even deeper; acknowledging that Jesus is among us and always will be.

When dry periods in our spiritual lives come; as indeed they will, find Jesus in the people around you. Especially the weak and sufferingshow us Jesus. Help meet their needs like Martha did, or just sit at His feet like Mary. Either way, we will be enriched spiritually.

Many thanks to those who continue to attend Mass and support your parish even during these vacation months. Be sure Jesus is with you, either at the shore or on Carlton Avenue or Thomas street.

You are in my thoughts and prayers!
