A Note From Our Pastor – March 16, 2020
Every weekend at Good Shepherd Catholic Church you hear me use these words: Grace and Peace! These two simple words, when written by St. Paul in his letters to the Churches of the First Century, marked the beginning of an unprecedented time. St. Paul believed that the grace of God’s Spirit, revealed in Jesus Christ and poured forth upon the world, made it possible for Jews and Gentiles to recognize each other as sisters and brothers, one people, one family. Many thought him a heretic and most just thought him to be foolish. But day by day, in little ways, individuals and families came together, first in homes and neighborhoods, and then in public buildings that were called Churches. Their assemblies opened a way for a new future for humankind – no longer enemies, but one family in Christ.

Two thousand years later, we are still trying to live that vision. Today, like St. Paul and the early disciples of Jesus, we face an unprecedented time! I would like to propose these two words to you as we also try to figure out “What next?”

Why grace? Every moment that we live is a gift of God, it is grace. Even the hardest moments of our life are still grace and an opportunity for us to be grateful. Right now as we speak to each other, we all need to remember that words of gratitude and thanks are more necessary than ever. Please try to speak a word of gratitude to everyone you meet and everyone with whom you interact. Store clerks and those who stock the shelves, pharmacists and technicians, doctors and nurses, maintenance workers, and emergency responders are all doing the best they can in difficult circumstances. Communications people are trying to assemble good information, which itself changes from moment to moment. Living together in close quarters may try our patience with each other as well. So, speak words of grace and gratitude, always and everywhere.

 Why peace? Because our response to this present moment will never turn out well if we don’t first have peace in our hearts and then extend peace to others. We human beings are capable of miraculous things when we work together. Peace is God’s gift to us and peace must be our gift to others. No one is perfect and no one has all of the answers. Fault finding and blame serve no purpose whatsoever. Some day in the future we can analyze what we did and learn from our mistakes. For now, take a moment to breathe; take a walk around the block; calm yourself and gift others with your calm.

 I am a child of a generation of Americans who came through the great depression and World War II. These remarkable survivors bequeathed to us a world built on grace and peace marked by determination, commitment, and community. We have shared in their legacy for seventy-five years. With the help of God we will now be the generation that will create a new legacy. We are with each other God’s grace made flesh and, working together in a true spirit of communion and peace, we will find a way forward. Together with God.
