ty-six years ago two people gave me an apocalyptic message; your drinking is out of control and there is a P lace where You can ex p erience new life. True apocalyptic messages state the truth life seems out of control, and they also always offer a way out and it is always about personal transformation into a new way of living. Twenty-six years ago is when I entered the living and healing community of AA. This is the kind of healing community our P arish is called to b er to be new life for all those who feel out of control unwanted or unloved This parish, any parish ought to, be a place of healing and growth in the rife Jesus Christ
Last weekend Barbara Harrison shared her stow in trying a street person. Life for this person seems impossible, in trouble with much tribulation, but her message to this person also included positive steps toward a new way of living- True abooalvotie messages are never condemning, never hopeless, never conditional but based on the unconditional love of God for each of us, showing us that there is a path to new life, and that we can always do together what we cannot do alone, that together God will do in us what we cannot do for ourselves.
