WEEKLY REFLECTIONS

The whole law is summed up in one saying: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” Consider how you treat others, particularly those you dislike or see as inferior. Think of a particular person. Perhaps a neighbor or co-worker you find particularly annoying. Recall the last time you encountered them and what happened. Did you even speak to them? Now imagine the same scene again but this time you encounter someone you really care about and enjoy. Notice the differences in your behavior. What are one or two simple, concrete things you could do to treat the person you dislike in a more loving way? Put your ideas into action and see what happens.


Lord, teach me to love myself well so that I may love others as You have commanded.

 

     
     
     

 

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.”

 

     
 

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.
