The darkness will grow longer. The temperatures will drop. The "void" has begun. Somehow, though, JOY abounds!
A year ago this month, Pope Francis issued his exhortation on "The Joy of the Gospel" (Evangelii gaudium). His words still ring true: "We become fully human when we become more than human, when we let God bring us beyond ourselves in order to attain the fullest truth of our being. Here we find the source and inspiration of all our efforts at evangelization."
The joy that is deep within, the joy that we wish to bring forth to become more fully human -- that's the spirit that inspires our work, in which we invite you to participate. Check out our calendar events -- and don't miss Heritage Week 2015 -- and share that joy with us!
We wish you and your families a Happy Thanksgiving. God Bless and Be Well.
Fr. Thomas Dailey, OSFS
"A specific priority is the need to examine the predominant values and norms of modern society and culture in a Christian perspective, and the responsibility to try to communicate to society those ethical and religious principles which give full meaning to human life."
- Pope John Paul II
