YEAR OF MERCY

 

 

 

 

JESUS, I TRUST IN YOU

 

Many times we trust a doctor: it is good, because the doctor is there to cure us, we trust in a person: brothers and sisters can help us.  It is good to have this human trust among ourselves. 

But we forget about trust in the Lord: this is the key to success in life.  “Trust in the Lord, let us trust in the Lord! “Lord look at my life.  I'm in the dark, I have this struggle, I have this sin…”;  everything we have: “look at this: I trust in you!”  And this is a risk we must take; to trust in him, and he never disappoints. 

 

 

                                    Homily, January 19, 2014.

 

 

Reflection:  When Jesus appeared to St. Faustina, He gave her a simple phrase to respond to Jesus' mercy.  The phrase is: “Jesus, I trust in you.”  Think of all your current struggles and challenges, then, repeat; “Jesus, I trust in you ! Jesus, I trust in you !  Jesus, I trust in you !” 

 

                                        Bulletin Deadline is Wednesdayn

CONFESSIONS:   Every Saturday at 4pm.

Sincerely, your new pastor  Rev Joe Selvanayagam
