Welcome to St. Christopher Parish

 

PRESBYTERAL VIEWPOINT

 

To dwell above with saints we love, That will be grace and glory.  To live below with saints we know; Well, that's another story!" Transcendental Catholic theological thought is based upon the four philosophical fruits of goodness, truth, beauty and unity.  Unity is the key issue for the Catholic Church of the past, present and future. Sacred Scripture says that a house divided against itself cannot stand.  As Catholics we need to be alert and aware of Right to Life issues that downgrade the good, true and beautiful image of God that each person was created with to walk in this world.  Of course there is abortion, euthanasia, and the criminal penalty of death.  One also must include bullying in that list.  Bullying can be physical along with verbal and emotional abuse.  The wrong word at the wrong time can harm a person in ways that many can’t even imagine.  Pushback against the verbal abusers of others.  Protect the vulnerable.  Stand in solidarity with others in their ministry as the Church works in this world to promote justice for all people. All of the Baptized have been called to be saints in this world.  Many of the stories of the saints include how they were able to bring people together for the beautiful common causes for goodness and truth.  As we prepare for the rapidly approaching feast of Pentecost, let us fervently pray that God may show us how best to proceed in building true and lasting Christian unity without sacrificing the basic vitality of peace and joy that Christ meant for all of us to have.  The unity for which we pray is not merely a “comfortable” notion of friendliness and cooperation.  It requires a willingness to dispense with competition between us.  We need to open ourselves to each other, to offer gifts to, and receive gifts from oneanother, so that we might truly enter into the new life in Christ, which is the only true victory.

A MOVEMENT TO RESTORE TRUST IN THE DIOCESE OF BUFFALO

An organization of independent  concerned, committed Catholics in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Buffalo has been formed to assert the laity’s rightful role in the Church and to help lead a movement to restore trust and confidence in the Church in the wake of the shocking disclosures about the Diocese’s handling of sex abuse cases involving clergy in Buffalo.
