Message from Father George

This week's Gospel reminds us of our dual citizenship & the same commitment we have as Pope Francis mentions in his encyclical Fratelli tutti. Jesus says "give to Caesar what is Caesar's & to God what is God's". We are citizens of the world & citizens of Heaven & have an allegiance & an obligation to each. We fulfill our duties to our country by loyally obeying the just laws of the land & working for the welfare of all citizens. We become good Heavenly citizens by obeying God's laws. Our service to the parish Church should be an expression of our gratitude to God, giving back to God all that He has given us. Active participation in the various ministries of the parish is an offering to God of our time & talents, yet another way of giving to God His due, our whole self. Let us realize that we are all brothers & sisters.

God bless us all.

Pope Francis' New Encyclical "Fratelli tutti" 

Pope Francis' 3rd encyclical Fratelli tutti (all brothers, subtitled "on fraternity & social friendship) was published on the feast day of St. Francis of Assisi. In the document, Pope Francis states that the COVID-19 pandemic has proven the failure of the world to work together during the crisis. He calls for more human fraternity & solidarity, & it is a plea to reject wars. in Fratelli tutti, Pope Francis addresses a humanity "on the brink" & indicates a way forward to a better future for all by treating each other as brothers & sisters of the one human family.
