Walk with Jesus Our Living Hope
November 19th, 2020
How quickly we have gotten to this part of the liturgical year! This weekend we are celebrating the Solemnity of Christ the King. This Feast day reminds us that Jesus Christ is King of all, the true ruler of both heaven and earth. Yet in the coming days of Advent, we will be reminded that he came as a little baby to humble parents, not royalty. His Father sent Him down as flesh and blood to save us.
I want to thank you for all your generosity during this time with our fundraisers and our charity donations. The excerpt from this week’s Gospel reminds us that all our gifts for our brothers and sisters in need are done in the name of Jesus.
And the King will answer, “In truth I tell you, in so far as you did this to one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did it to me.” – Matthew 25:40
Let us celebrate our King this weekend! Next week, I will share with you just how much excitement I get out of the Advent season. It is truly my most favourite time of the year!
Congratulations on the Krzus family on their new addition. Welcome to the St. Patrick’s community, baby Samuel!
May God bless you and keep you safe.
Yours In Christ
Mrs. Maria Fonseca
