Welcome

When Francis learned to understand and cherish each individual person as a unique reflection of God's creative genius, a true attitude of human concern and compassion began to form within him. Through grace, Francis turned his initial revulsion at the sight of a leper into a personal triumph over judgment, bigotry, and false assumptions. This impulse led, in turn, to a movement of peace that would affect legions of people for centuries. Because of this, people called upon him to resolve their disputes and to deliver them from danger and violence.

Francis spent the remainder of his life preaching the loving mercy of that God made flesh, supporting his brothers in the Community and praying with the greatest devotion in union with Jesus. In the Words of Saint Francis of Assisi

"O Lord, make me an instrument of Thy Peace! Where there is hatred, let me sow love; Where there is injury, pardon; Where there is discord, harmony; Where there is doubt, faith; Where there is despair, hope; Where there is darkness, light, and Where there is sorrow, joy. Oh Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console; to be understood as to understand; to be loved as to love; for it is in giving that we receive; It is in pardoning that we are pardoned; and it is in dying that we are born to Eternal Life."

Let us Pray
Heavenly Father, you gave your servant Francis the insight and courage to cherish every human person. We feel too weak and uncertain, too sinful and unprepared to follow in his footsteps. Help us all to respond to the challenge to create peace and to accept one another according to the light of the Gospel. We ask this in Jesus' Name. Amen.

I would like to take this opportunity on behalf of the entire parish community to invite you to join us during our Sunday Celebration of the Holy Eucharist. We are a small community with peace and harmony displayed from all the nations that are represented by our congregation. You can also be part of this joy and love each and every Sunday. We look forward to seeing you there and may you have a blessed day.

Fr. Giancarlo Faldani
