    June 27 - A message from Father John: Meditation:

    Good morning beloved parishioners and friends: Glory be to Jesus Christ, our Savior; What a rain last night, wow....good for the gardens; Do you know God takes our efforts for good and blesses them. God needs our efforts. We need God's blessings during the summer, fall, winter, spring. Together, they mean spiritual success. Our efforts are necessary. We cannot merely relax and drift with the tide of materialism around us. When difficulties come, (they do) our efforts are needed to surmount them. But God directs our efforts into the right channels, and we are successful. The Lord's blessings are necessary to help us choose the right way.

    Prayer: I pray that I may have God's blessing and direction in ALL my efforts for the good. Amen. Love, Fr. John.

    See you tomorrow, 9 a.m. Liturgy. Enjoy the weekend..... I will be with about 80 altar boys and 12 priests and 1 Bishop. Good company.
