Celebrate the SAVIOR

"This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice in it and be glad." Psalm 1 18:24

 

ST. JOSEPH and HOLY TRINITY CATHOLIC PARISHES are a welcoming Catholic community, alive in Christ, living out His message in love and service to everyone. 

 

THE PADRE'S PORTION 

We have been following closely the Life of Christ during our Lenten and Holy Week journeys. Some have split the Gospel Story into three parts: The Life of Jesus, The Life of the Apostles after Jesus was Crucified, and the Life of the Church after the Death of John the Apostle until Today. This three-part history of the Church is incredibly rich with demonstrating the power of the Gospel to bring the Faith to the World.  What about the history of Faith in a single person? Well, recently a new film has opened up in movie theaters. It is simply titled, “PAUL”.  It portrays quite well a view into the world of St. Paul during the final years of Paul’s life. You can pick out a biography of St. Paul by reading the thirteen books of the New Testament attributed to him. Or, you can read the Book of the Acts of the Apostles [in brief: Acts]. Paul (Saul) is first mentioned in Acts 7:58; where he is helping in the stoning of St. Stephen. By chapter nine, we meet the story of his conversion. From then, until the end of Acts, we read about the changing of a sinner into a saint.                                                                                                        Fr.
