June 17: XI Sunday in ordinary time

Trust in the Lord underlies all of today's readings. Ezekiel prophesied during the time of Israel's exile. Many had lost faith that God would care for them. Ezekiel assured them that God would "lift high the lowly tree . . make the withered tree bloom" (Ezekiel 17:24). The message: keep trusting in God. Saint Paul says we should "walk by faith, not by sight," trusting in the Lord's vision (2 Corinthians 5:7). Finally, Jesus speaks to the crowd about seeds planted in the earth. We cannot see what is happening in the soil, but we trust that they will grow. Sure enough, eventually they sprout and flourish and become grain to be harvested or shelter for birds. Trust in the Lord. Jesus tells two parables about how the kingdom of God grows, each involving seeds planted in the earth. We can think of these seeds taking root internally, in ourselves. How many seeds have been planted within us during our lives that we are not aware of anymore? Something our dad said when we were growing up? An insight from a mentor or a boss? Something that we heard just last week at Mass? Then one day we encounter someone or something new and we recall what we heard. Now it has a chance to blossom, to flower. We can also think of these seeds taking root outside ourselves, out in the world. Where might these seeds be germinating right now where we would not notice them sprouting? Among the poor and impoverished? With those who are shunned or neglected? Again and again in scripture we learn that the kingdom of God is built in unexpected places. Why would it be any different now?

Happy Father's Day!

God our Father,
In your wisdom and love you made all things.
Bless these men that they may be strengthened
as Christian fathers.
Let the example of their faith and love shine forth.
Grant that we, their sons and daughters,
may honor them always
with a spirit of profound respect.

Our fathers will be remembered in prayers during all Sunday, June 17th masses

My Dear Parishioners!

May your hearts be filled with the radiant splendor of that true light which came to earth on that sacred night on which our Savior was born. Please know of my prayers for you during Masses of the Christmas Season, that you and your loved ones enjoy the blessings of this sacred time and throughout the coming New Year 2018!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!

Your Pastor - Fr. Jacek
