We constantly hear about the importance of a balanced
diet and the benefits of eating proper foods. Our spiritual
development also requires nourishment. There are many resources
available to us: the Scriptures, spiritual books, people who are
experienced in the spiritual life and the Eucharist. Do you take
time to nourish your spirit? Do you value the gift of the
Eucharist? Do you stop to reflect on what it means to receive
the Eucharist? Do you use other resources to nourish and deepen
your faith? Consider your spiritual “diet” and how you might
Every time, then, you eat this bread an drink this cup, you
proclaim the death of the Lord until He comes!

THE WORDS OF POPE FRANCIS
“On the evening of Easter, Jesus appeared to the Apostles and
breathed on them His Spirit; on the morning of Pentecost the
outpouring occurred in a resounding way, like a wind which shook
the place the Apostles were in, filling their minds and hearts.
They received a new strength so great that they were able to
proclaim Christ’s Resurrection in different languages: “They
were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and began to speak in
other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance” (Acts 2:4).
Together with them was Mary, the Mother of Jesus, the first
disciple and the Mother of the nascent Church. With her peace
and her smile, she accompanied the joyful young Bride, the
Church of Jesus.”
“The world needs the fruits of the Holy Spirit: “love, joy,
peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness,
self-control” (Gal 5:22). The gift of the Holy Spirit has been
bestowed upon the Church and upon each one of us, so that we may
live lives of genuine faith and active charity, that we may sow
the seeds of reconciliation and peace. Strengthened by the
Spirit and His many gifts, may we be able, uncompromisingly, to
battle against sin and corruption, devoting ourselves with
patient perseverance to the works of justice and peace.”
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.
