Inspired by the Holy Spirit, we proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ. We warmly welcome those who are willing to embrace our Roman Catholic Faith and invite them to join us as we worship, serve and educate, so that Christ may impact the lives of all whom we encounter.
The Kingdom of God is Near!
The Holy Father gave a homily the other day about the Kingdom of God... “The Kingdom of God is not far from us,” the Pope stated. “It’s close! This is one of its features: It’s close to us every day. The Kingdom of God is humble, like a seed” Francis said. “It is humble but becomes great, by the power of the Holy Spirit.” Our job, the Pope said, “is to let it grow in us, without boasting. Let the Spirit come, change our souls and bring us forward in silence, in peace, in quiet, in closeness to God,” he said. “When you think of the perseverance of so many Christians,” Francis went on, “who are taking care of their families—men and women—caring for their children, for their grandparents and they reach the end of the month with only half a euro, but they pray… there is the Kingdom of God, hidden in the holiness of everyday life.” Francis concluded by asking “the Lord for the grace to take care of the kingdom of God that is within us, with prayer, worship and the service of charity.”
