TUESDAY MUSINGS 6/18

Yesterday, Monday, I met with the St. Bernard Parish Pastoral Council and discussed extensively the issues and concerns. Tonight, Tuesday, I had a listening and planning session with the Grupo Timon (Core Group) of the Charismatic Group. Fr. Marco Basulto who's joining us this July will be a huge help as he was instrumental in the establishment of the ministry here.

WORLD REFUGEE DAY

This Thursday, June 20 is designated as World Refugee Day.

"God our refuge, You share the journey with migrants and refugees, lightening their footsteps with hope. For you, Lord, are close to the broken-hearted. Pour out your Spirit upon world leaders. May they see the tragedies of our human family, and be moved to respond with wisdom, compassion and courage. Open our eyes and hearts to the God-given dignity of all your people. Move us to welcome our neighbors, and so bear witness to your love. Through Christ our Lord. Amen." 

 

EVENING CAME AND MORNING FOLLOWED…6 MONTHS AFTER…

I didn’t realize until a few weeks ago that I’ve been here over 6 months already. It went quick. I must be having a lot of fun. Like I said to many parishioners, I’m blessed to be here. Here in Douglas-Pirtleville, I’ve met one of the amazing, wonderful and nicest people I’ve met in life. I won’t mention names but I’m endlessly inspired by the lives of so many people from all walks of life.
