It’s time to be bold! It’s time to be bold in our faith! Can you even imagine what our parish would look like if we were bold in our faith life? The time is NOW for us to be bold and passionate in our faith life! Every day God grants us and blesses us with a glorious purpose according to God’s divine will for creation. You and I are called to love God, know God, and serve God in this lifetime NOW here on this earth. Do we acknowledge that God has blessed us, and how do we truly show our gratitude and thanks to God for all of His blessings He has bestowed upon us? Every prayer, and I do mean every prayer that I have petitioned, or offered has been answered. I’m just waiting to see when our parish community will get bold and passionate in its faith, and to see it manifested in a life of Christian stewardship and evangelization with our 440 registered families. I tell God every day that I truly do His divine will within my life, and that I continue to shepherd the flock He has entrusted to me. We will all have to stand before the Judgment seat of God and explain our passionate or “lukewarm” practice of our faith. For this new month of October, let’s all take a risk and be bold in our faith life!
