Pastors Corner ~
WHAT TRUE RELIGION IS
All three readings this Sunday give one and the same message: following the commandments of God and putting His word into action. They describe what true religion is, and true religion is one that is pure and undefiled before God. Moses reminded the Israelites that observing the commandments of God is a sure mark of an intelligent and great nation. St. James encourages Christians to be doers and not just hearers of the word of God and teaches that true religion is keeping away from sin while showing love to others. Jesus rebuked the hypocrisy of the Pharisees and scribes who follow external observances of the law and human traditions but forgetting the most essential element of the law which is Love. Through all generations God wanted that those who believe in Him should show their faith by their fear of offending God through sin and by revealing this God of love who is invisible through visible acts of love for others. Religion is not a set of doctrines to be memorized, but a Person whose principles and values are to be embraced. Christian religion means being connected to a loving God and making Him known through avoidance of sin and the spreading of love.

EDUCATION AND EVANGELIZATION


The month of September marks the beginning of Catholic school year and religious education in the parish. The Catholic school, RCIA program, religious education classes and Confirmation classes are some of the Churchs tools and arms to pass on the faith to the young and old. Let us continue supporting our Catholic and religious education through our prayers, financial donations, sharing of voluntary time and talents for the education in faith of our parishioners. This will show that we are truly united as one community in our journey of faith and life.
