 PUT MERCY IN MOTION

  
How can we show others the mercy of God? We say that God is compassionate, but we ignore the homeless, the poor, the refugee.  We say that God loves us and has mercy on us, but we hold grudges against our family, friends and co-workers.  OUR ACTIONS need to authentically reflect God's mercy. Explore the different ways that you can live out that mercy every day!

DISCOVERING OR REDISCOVERING THE CATHOLIC FAITH

Welcome. Have you been away from church? Are you thinking about coming back? Do you know someone who wants to come home to the Catholic Church, but is struggling with their faith? Maybe you or someone you know has experienced one of these thoughts:

I grew up Catholic, but for some reason I just sort of stopped going to Church…

I just moved to this area, I tried going to a couple different parishes, but I never really felt welcomed...

After my marriage ended, I felt uncomfortable around my family, friends and parish…

I just don't understand why the Church teaches what it does! Some teachings seem so outdated…

If you have experienced one of these situations or thoughts, you are not alone. This loving parish family wants you to know that you are a child of God, called by name, precious in his eyes and loved by him (Is. 43:1,4). Remember what God has to say to you through the Prophet Jeremiah: For I know well the plans I have in mind for you … plans for your welfare and not for woe, so as to give you a future of hope (Jer. 29:11).

This church also wants you to know that you are missed. When one member of the Body of Christ suffers, this parish family suffers.

Has Sunday and daily readings just as they appear in the Lectionary or Missalette.

Reflecting on Sunday's Readings

Choose the file name with NAB (New American Bible). This translation is the one that is read in church. (There is no St. Joseph or St. Jerome Bible translation. These names are titles given by the publishers for their styles. The NRSV is a good translation as well, but is not the one you will hear at Mass.

APPS for Smart Phones:

Laudate is the #1 Catholic App and has absolutely every prayer and just about anything else that anyone can imagine.

iBreviary TS has the exact Breviary or Office as it is prayed in the USA (Laudate has the British version); it has a few rituals Laudate lacks. 

At DivineOffice.org you will find the text of the entire Breviary or Office on the Internet. You will find that you can pray it with a small group recording that will lead you through the varioius parts at anytime day or night. This is one of the best ways to learn to pray the Breviary. You can also purchase this material as an app so that you can pray it in your vehicle as you drive. It is ideal for anyone who has impaired sight or a reading disability. If you like the rosary, you will love the Breviary. Remeber, the rosary was created in part for those who could not read the Breviary well enough each day!

Nip Marital Problems in the Bud:

If you are having MARITAL TROUBLE; are contemplating separation or divorce; have already separated or divorced; or are even contemplating re-marriage, marriage counselors are rarely successful. The majority see themselves as preparing couples for an amicable divorce. Counselors might be helpful when mental illness or addictions are the root cause. www.Retrouvaille.org has an 80% success rate; it is a weekend program with six follow-up sessions. It is not counseling but is similar to a 12 step program. It is thoroughly Catholic and is private for the couple. Couples are not required to self-reveal in any group interaction although they may engage in some group events at their discretion.
