THE PADRE'S PORTION 

16th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Dear Brothers and Sisters; We have had recently been exposed to the word, ‘crisis’. I am particularly thinking of the two rather large earthquakes in California, and the almost disastrous coastal flooding in the Gulf due to Storm ‘Barry’. The event of a crisis can happen anywhere anytime, right? Today, I would like to focus on a crisis that many of us don’t dwell on too much. This week, I had the honor to do a Funeral Mass out at Cope Chapel in Farmington. Most of us are heart broken when we see our loved ones, slowly or quickly, come to their day of finishing their earthly labors. Is this the crisis that I am speaking of? No. What I wish to focus on today is the crisis of the heavy costs involved in a funeral service for our loved one. Not too many families are financially prepared for a second funeral, especially if it comes soon after the loss of a loved one. Most of us, only think of our immediate family. Unfortunately, we all have family members who don’t have a lot of financial strength. I believe that families should help each other in times like these. Are you prepared to handle a funeral today?

                                                           Fr. David Tate

                                                                So let our sacrifice be in your presence today
    and find favor before you;
            for those who trust in you cannot be                               put to shame.
And now we follow you with our whole heart,
    we fear you and we seek your face.
Do not put us to shame,
             but deal with us in your kindness                           and great mercy.
Deliver us in accord with your wonders,
         and bring glory to your name, O Lord. 
 
                                                                                                                                                                                  Daniel 3:40-43
