Welcome to St. Christopher Parish

Dear Family,

God will provide! Do we trust God enough to believe that? That is the essence of our readings this weekend. In our First Reading, we hear the story of Elijah going to the widow of Zarephath. He insists that she make him some bread before she makes some for herself and her son. She lets him know that she is going to run out of flour and oil that day and then she and her son will die from lack of food. He tells her that she needs to trust him when he tells her that God will not let the jars go empty. She does as he insists, trusting that God will provide, and God did indeed provide. Would we have done the same? In our Gospel, Jesus points out the widow who gives everything she has to the Temple, believing that God will provide for her because of her refusing to keep anything from God. She gives of her very self. She realizes that even the little she has is from God and she needs to return it to God. She believed that God would provide! Do we? How deep is our trust in Him? Do we really believe that strongly that God will provide? Do we have the deep faith of these two women? Or are we holding to ourselves whatever wealth and talents we have, just in case…

Praised Be Jesus Christ…Now and Forever!!!
