A Very Happy Mother’s Day!

Today’s Gospel gives us many memorable quotes: “Do not let your hearts be troubled,” “in my Father’s house there are many dwelling places,” and “I am the way the truth and the life,” and from the rst letter of Peter: “You are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people of his own.”This is what we have been given by Jesus; this gives us our identity. Christianity in its early years was called “The Way.” This was to protect the early Christians from persecution, but all of those who followed “The Way” knew what that meant. Through our celebration of Easter, we have recommitted ourselves to con- tinue our journey on “The Way.”

This week we join with the churches in our Parish Cluster – St. John the Baptist, Holy Cross, Holy Innocents, and Sts. Cyril and Methodius – for the Parish Mission titled “Revive: Faith Every Day.” Elsewhere in the bulletin is information of “Revive” with Fr. Innocent Smith, O.P., the speaker each evening. We are the host for these three evenings – Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday at 6:30 PM. Please join us along with our guests!

Next Sunday is the annual Korean Bazaar. There will be delicious Korean food, tables with items for sale, and many Korean specialties. It begins at 10 AM and goes through the afternoon until 5 PM on Broadway between 31st and 32nd Street. Don’t miss this annual event!
