Welcome to St. Christopher Parish

Dear Family,

When we are going through difficult times in our lives, we often keep the experience and our feelings to ourselves. Why? Because we feel that we have no one to turn to who understands. The exception is when we have someone in our life who has gone through a similar struggle. Shared experience brings common ground on which we can have a conversation. The author of the Letter to the Hebrews in our Second Reading today reminds us that we always have that person in our lives. That person is Jesus!! He took on human flesh, became fully human, and experienced life just like any other human! Jesus had a mother and foster father. He had more trials in life than any of us ever will. His family was exiled to Egypt. He worked alongside Joseph as a carpenter in a very small town and was poor. Jesus’ human life was not easy! That is one of the great things about Jesus; though He always was, always is and always will be God, He has also shared in our human experiences and can relate to our struggles as He dealt with them also. We can always turn to Jesus in our difficult times along with in our joyous times! He will understand and He will comfort us and guide us and offer us advice, if we choose to spend quality time with Him and share our life with Him. We just need to make the effort! As the author of Hebrews reminds us in the last verse of our reading today: “So let us confidently approach the throne of grace to receive mercy and to find grace for timely help.”

Praised Be Jesus Christ…Now and Forever!!!
