WEEKLY REFLECTIONS

The Our Father is a prayer we say so often that we seldom stop to think about what we are saying. Take some time to say this prayer slowly out loud and reflect on each phrase. You may want to focus on one phrase at a time and take several days to go through the prayer. Notice what is asked for in the prayer: what is needed for today, forgiveness as we forgive others, and avoiding temptation. Reflect on what you need for the day. Consider how you have forgiven someone who has offended you; is this how you want to be forgiven? What are the temptations in your life? Do you take any steps to avoid them?

The Lord will fulfill His purpose for me;
Thy steadfast love, O Lord, endures forever.

PSALM 138:8

     
     
     

QUOTES FROM ST. JOHN VIANNEY


“Prayer is the inner bath of love into which the soul plunges itself.”


“We are each of us like a small mirror in which God searches for His reflection.”


“Remain humble, remain simple. The more you are so,
the more good you will do.”


“Only after the Last Judgment will Mary get any rest; from now until then, she is much too busy with her children.”


“In your work, offer your difficulties and troubles quite simply to God…and you will find that His blessing will rest upon you and on all you do.”


“How good is our God! When we can no longer come to Him, He comes to us.”


“Private prayer is like straw scattered here and there: If you set it on fire it makes a lot of little flames. But gather these straws into a bundle and light them, and you get a mighty fire, rising like a column into the sky; public prayer is like that.”

 

THE WORDS OF POPE FRANCIS


“Each of us here shares a calling to work for the common good. Fifty years ago, the Second Vatican Council defined the common good as “the sum of those conditions of social life which allow social groups and their individual members relatively thorough and ready access to their own fulfillment”. May your efforts contribute to the growth of greater respect for the human person, endowed with basic and inalienable rights ordered to his or her integral development, and social peace, namely, the stability and security provided by a certain order which cannot be achieved without particular concern for distributive justice. In a word, let wealth be shared.”

 

 

 

 

     
 

OUR MISSION
We, the faith community of St. John Vianney, are called by God to be a people of prayer, to live the Word, and to celebrate the Sacraments. We commit ourselves to become a warm and welcoming community, reaching out to others in need. By calling forth the varieties of gifts, talents, and ministries, we seek to provide an open environment with opportunities for all to grow in holiness and loving service.
