Our Mission

 

We believe that the door to salvation is always open to everyone and so are the doors to our church.

“Jesus teaches what it means to be happy.”

(Matthew 5:1-12)  

Every year the Church recalls the example, witness, and prayer of the holy women and men who have been identified by the Church as Saints. These saints are more than just role models; they are also the Souls of our family members with whom we continue to share relation, in a bond of prayer.

In Today’s Gospel Jesus teaches us about happiness, the Beatitudes. Notice that none of those Jesus names as “blessed” or “happy” are expected, they are the poor in spirit, the meek, the persecuted. Jesus' blueprint for happiness reflects little of what the world might call happiness.

What does Jesus mean when he uses the word “blessed?” Jesus is saying that divine favor is upon those who are poor, who mourn, who are persecuted.

The Beatitudes are the framework for Christian living. Because of this, it is natural that we proclaim this Gospel on the Feast of All Saints. Saints are people who lived the spirit of the Beatitudes as Jesus lived. Sisters and brothers on this day, we too are challenged to model our lives on the spirit and promises of the Beatitudes.

 

God’s Blessings,

Michael Maurice, Worship and Religious Education Ministry                                                                         Saint Francis Ecumenical Catholic Church (Year C, 11/3/2019)
