Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,
On behalf of all of us on our parish pastoral staff, I offer you our wishes that you feel the joy of the Gospel and that the power of the Good News of Jesus will be at the center of your life.
One of the models for Christian living is the passage in Luke's Gospel about the two disciples on the day of resurrection who were walking on the Road to Emmaus. They honestly talked with one another and shared their worries, questions, hope, and faith. They met a stranger on the way. They extended hospitality.
They listened intently as the stranger offered helpful information. They eventually recognized the stranger as Jesus hopes when they break bread together. And then they noticed that their hearts were on fire.
In a small parish like ours, we need to know that we can connect with good folks with whom we can honestly talk. We need to give and receive the blessing of hospitality and we are encouraged by companions who have also come to know the Lord in the Breaking of the Bread.
And, just as over 2000 years ago, our hearts can be so touched by our encounters with Jesus and His Spirit within our congretation that our zeal gets ignited and we desire to begin or continue living as a disciple of Jesus Christ; a disciple who naturally seeks to serve the Master in the family, our parish and our community.
We are called to be disciples, to seek to know Jesus, to learn how best to live for Jesus, and to give new life as Jesus did. I look forward to you joining us in this holy endeavor as the people of God here at St. Julian Church.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
Fr. Kiran Varaparla
