“Who except God can give you peace? Has the world ever been able to satisfy the heart?” — St. Gerard Majella
Last Thursday we had the funeral Mass for our beloved pastor, Fr. Bob. The gospel was that of the Good Thief. Then, at the end of the Mass Andrew Lloyd Weber’s Pie Jesu was sung: Sweet Jesus, have mercy! Truly at the end of our lives it is only the mercy of Jesus that opens to us the doors of Heaven.
Let’s thank God for Fr. Bob and all the priests who are instruments of God’s mercy, and let’s pray that all priests continue to turn to Jesus for the mercy they need also.
