SCRIPTURE REFLECTION:

During the Easter Season our scripture readings are somewhat different in pattern. We focus on Acts of the Apostles and John’s writings. These readings tell of both the joys and the struggles of the early church… and really these present the same challenges to the church today. We will hear descriptions of how the people bonded as a Christian family and because of this lived differently within their culture. Still today, we are called to be one Christian family. The way we live together, share Christ’s values, understand money, pray, and care for each other… these are the things that are to make the rest of the world say, “see how these Christians love one another.” And this love in action will transform the world.Believing in Jesus is the key to being this way! It must be personal… it must be real… this relationship with the Lord must change us, just as it changed ‘doubting’ Thomas. God’s Spirit of peace and of forgiveness  opens us to see and touch Jesus in this world. That’s the vision… and just as the first generation of Christians found both joy and struggle in doing this, so do we today!

As we end this semester it is a time for thanks. We have gathered as a faith community each week, supporting each other- sometimes knowing why and sometimes just being here without knowing the other’s struggles. Many have given of themselves…in friendships, in compassion, and in causes. We have reached out in projects such as NEIGHBORHOOD HOUSE (cooking breakfast, helping to glean thousands of pounds of food for our neighbors & gather from SLEEP # thousands of dollars in bedding), Blood drives, Habitat building, Food bank sorting, LowCountry Pregnancy Center clothing…and much more. Moreover, we collect money at each Mass to help St. Patrick cover the costs of being our ‘home away from home’ parish. And we love the Daughters of St. Paul & support their ministry with our bake sale donation. ALL of this is responsible stewardship and what we are called to do.

We are a faith family. Thank you for being here and for being open to others.

On a personal note I am so grateful that you allow me to be part of your college experience & minister with you. Let’s keep each other in prayer. We always need this support!

THANKS! JIM
