HOPE IN THE TIME OF TROUBLE

 By Rev. Tom Bonacci C. P.

Those who look to God are radiant;
their faces are never covered with shame.
The poor ones call out to God,
and God hears them;
saving them out of all their troubles.  - Psalm 34: 5-6
Our evening reflection will offer some perspectives as to hope we might discern in the midst of the conflict and division in our World today. We will recall the words and strategy of Pope Joh the XXIII who confronted the “prophets of doom” at the beginning of the Second Vatican Council. The Council itself offered us hope by emphasizing the presence and expectation of the Kingdom of God as something greater than the Church itself. This “Kingdom of God” is unfolding in our time by a restored understanding of the Church as the people of God living in the World as a source of that justice which gives birth to peace. The developing sense of the Church as a Synodal people of discernment continues and implements the work of Vatican II. Finally, we will confront some of the issues of our day with the intent to discern a sense of direction based on hope and not a false sense of optimism.

Act of Spiritual Communion

My Jesus,
I believe that You
are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love You above all things,
and I desire to receive You into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment
receive You sacramentally,
come at least spiritually into my heart.
I embrace You as if You were already there
and unite myself wholly to You.
Never permit me to be separated from You.
Amen.

Who We Are

Honoring our Franciscan tradition, St. Francis Parish is a Catholic Christian Community building the reign of God in the spirit and path of St. Francis and St. Clare of Assisi. We value vibrant liturgy and personal prayer as a way to worship God and celebrate life.

We are an inclusive community respecting the dignity of all persons and supporting the journey of each person. We respond to the command of Jesus to love by welcoming all, evangelizing, supporting spiritual growth, and being Eucharist to each other.

Challenged by the Holy Spirit, we reach beyond ourselves to care for our neighbors, the poor, the marginalized, and those alienated by our Catholic Church. We aspire to be witnesses and prophets advocating for justice in the world and in the church.

All Are Welcome
