Welcome to St. Christopher Parish

Dear Family,

How strong and resilient is our faith in God? How firm is our belief that God will provide for our needs and wants only to spend eternity with us? In our First Reading today, Abraham and Isaac place their total trust in God. Abraham is willing to sacrifice his beloved son Isaac and Isaac willingly gets on the altar to become that sacrifice. That is faith! God of course stops Abraham and instead provides a ram for the sacrifice. This prefigures God sacrificing His own Son to redeem humankind, as we are reminded by St. Paul in our Second Reading. God is for us. What do we have to fear? God loves us so much that he would send His Son Jesus on a mission to provide the ultimate sacrifice for the redemption of our souls. We will face challenges in life. The Christian life is not easy. But we need to trust that God is always at our side carrying our burdens with us. The wonderful story of the Transfiguration in the Gospel today provides us with a glimpse of what our bodies will look like in their resurrected form at the end of time. Let us never lose faith that God will provide all the help we need to enter into eternal life with Him. We simply need to follow His way and ask for His help!  

Praised Be Jesus Christ…Now and Forever!!!
