Welcome to St. Christopher Parish

Dear Family,

We are called to PRAYER and ACTION! That is the message of our first two readings today. In our First Reading from the Book of Amos, we are given a very strong message about the mistreatment of those who are less fortunate than ourselves. God is calling us to action. He wants us to treat one another with the respect that is due to all human beings. God tells us that He will act in a severe way against those who ‘trample upon the needy and destroy the poor of the land’. St. Paul tells us in our Second Reading from the First Letter to Timothy that we are to pray for all things and for everyone, especially those in authority, that we may live tranquil lives. The closing verse of today’s reading states ‘It is my wish, then, that in every place the men should pray, lifting up holy hands, without anger or argument’. So how are we doing as individuals and as a community? Have we ever forgotten about or walked past those who are in need? Have we taken action to help them? When was the last time we prayed for those who hold authority to govern rather than complain and curse them and speak ill of them? Prayer wields the great power of conversion. Let’s follow St. Paul’s advice!
Praised Be Jesus Christ…Now and Forever!!!
