“HAPPY ARE WE: THE TEACHINGS OF JESUS”
The revelation of Jesus as God is accompanied by a stunning invitation to a unique new way of life, explained in the teachings of Jesus. To every generation, the words of Jesus have proven fascinating, disorienting, sometimes confounding, deeply transformative, and always unforgettable.
Father Barron highlights the Beatitudes, the path of non-violence and lessons of forgiveness, care for the poor and our relationship with God as presented in the parables. Jesus’ teachings are illuminated during Fr. Barron’s pilgrimages to Poland, Germany, Spain and New York City. Commentaries at these sites also show how the Catholic Church is a living culture, which gives witness to the inviolable dignity of the human person.
This weekend, November 3rd & 4th, we will be taking up a special collection to help support the annual Christmas basket program. Envelopes for the special collection were attached to the bulletin last weekend, and are available at the entrance of the church.
