Welcome to Christmas/Easter Catholics (Given at the end of Christmas Masses)
For our Christmas and Easter brothers and sisters: if you thought you’d make it through Mass without a plug for coming more often, you thought wrong!
I would like to share that I am a new priest, ordained only last June. Because of the Mass, I became a priest. Because of the Mass, I gave up having a wife and children.
There is no better place to experience God’s love and mercy than at Mass.
I challenge you as you brainstorm New Year’s resolution—make getting to Mass a goal in your lives. If you make a commitment to come to Mass you will be happier because of it. I guarantee it.
You are welcome here at St. John’s/St. Joe’s and I speak on behalf of all priests that you are welcome to experience the fullness of our Catholic faith on a weekly basis.
