Fr. Bill's Weekly Message and Video

Dear Parishioners and Friends,

Happy Father’s Day to all fathers! May the Lord bless you as you seek to be men of faith, hope and love in a world that so underestimates the role of loving fathers. Fatherhood is more than physical as we learn from St. Joseph. During this holy year dedicated to St. Joseph our Guardian and Protector, may he gain for all fathers the grace they need to live their vocation: to safeguard the eternal salvation of all who are in their care. My own father passed away suddenly over 13 years ago. He lost his father when he was just 13 years old so I think it was particularly difficult for him to raise 8 children not being able to turn to his father for advice. Fortunately, the Lord gave me 44 years to learn from my father! So many of the stories and lessons I share in my preaching originated with my father. He was a tremendous dad — not perfect, of course! — but I’m so deeply grateful to God our Father for the loving father he commissioned to raise me up. Speaking of which: here is the link to this week’s Friday afternoon video series song by Randy Travis called “Raise Him Up”.

God bless you all!

Fr. Bill, OP
Sacramental Minister
