Bishop Martin Baharona visited our parish on September 2nd and confirmed many of our young adult parishioners. In preaching the Gospel of Mark 7:1-8, 14-15, 21-23, he emphatically shared the message that it is not enough to wash our hands. Christ washes our hearts, minds, and spirits clean.
Father Cooper asked during the homily on August 26 "How much do you trust God?"
This question was inspired by that week's Gospel reading, John 6:60-69. Read the text in your Bible and imagine being a disciple, trying to comprehend his teaching. Would you respond like Peter and stay, or return to your former way of life like so many?
