Dominus providebit

The parish staff celebrated three birthdays today with a luncheon at a nearby buffet. We spent nearly 1 ½ hours in the middle-of-the-day enjoying a fine repast and pleasant repartee. This is most certainly the best parish staff I have ever enjoyed working with. Each person realizes that they are—as our Holy Father has expressed—co-workers in the Vineyard of the Lord. They are not back-biting, back-stabbing hypocrites (as found in many office situations). Instead, they all are accepting, caring, and loving; true Christians in word and deed. Additionally, and most importantly, they are faithful and faith-filled Catholics. They are faithful to the Magisterium and the Church’s dogma, doctrine, and discipline. They are not Roman Protestants. They are Roman Catholics! The Most Holy Sacrament of the Altar is their strength, and the One True God is their all. I thank the Lord everyday for putting this team together.

Which allows you to focus on the daunting task of being a Pastor, rather than referee. Secure pro's don't have petty agendas. They can lead and more importantly, will ask to be led.

Good people attract other good people. How wonderful to hear good words about those in your life, all to seldom today do we take the time to thank those around us for being so wonderful. Thank you for the reminder. Today is my Mother's 81 birthday & our wonderful pastor gave her a special blessing. Good things are happening all over! You and your team have a blessed day.
