Welcome to St. Christopher Parish

Dear Family,

HAPPY EASTER!
What does Jesus expect of us as His followers? According to our Gospel Reading today, Jesus expects us to hear His voice, the voice of the Good Shepherd, and to follow His commands. He expects us to accept the teachings of the Church as taught to us by Scripture and Tradition. Both allow us to hear the voice of God in our time! If we choose to follow Jesus, He assures us of eternal life with Him in heaven, which is our ultimate goal as believers. In our First Reading today, Paul and Barnabas are in Antioch. They are teaching with the authority that was given to them as priests and bishops, which we consider today to be the Magisterial Tradition of the Church, yet the people of that area were not ready to hear the Good News of Jesus. We hear how the leaders of the city turned people against them and had them driven from the city. What was their response? Was it ‘That’s OK. Jesus will forgive them’? NO! They shook the dust from their feet in protest against them, an incredible insult in that day, and turned to the gentiles to bring them the Good News! We cannot pick and choose the teachings of God and His Church that we like and then dismiss the rest. That’s not the way it works! Just read Scripture and you will find out what happened to those who tried that route! Let us all choose to remain true to the teachings of God and His Church. We may not always understand why God lays out these commandments for us to follow, but we can rest assured that they are for our good! Who knows better for us what is good for us but the God who created us?!?!
Praised Be Jesus Christ…Now and Forever!!!
