Saint Gabriel Church
June 25, 2017
Three times in today’s Gospel, Jesus tells his disciples to “fear no one” (Mt 10:26) and “not be afraid” (Mt 10:28, 31). After all, God deeply cares about his beloved children. “Even all the hairs of your head are counted” (Mt 10:30). Furthermore, the Lord promises us that “everyone who acknowledges me before others I will acknowledge before my heavenly Father” (Mt 10:32). Echoing these words, St. John Paul II said at the beginning of his pontificate, “brothers and sisters, do not be afraid to welcome Christ and accept his power. . . . Do not be afraid. Open wide the doors for Christ” (Inaugural Homily, no 5). The choice we face is either to succumb to fear and allow it to paralyze us or to open the doors of our lives for Christ who alone can satisfy our deepest desires.

Weekend of June 18TH
HOLY DORMITION FRANCISCAN FRIARY
On Saturday July 1 at 11am, we will have a short prayer service and reception to celebrate the life and ministry of Fr Anthony, Br Gus, and the many other friars who have served here in Sybertsville through the years. As our elder brothers age, we want to be sure to honor them while they are still with us. At the same time, with no recent vocations, our time here as a community is likely to be limited. So, we hope that you can join us for this celebration on July 1. If you can come, please let us know by email < email@example.com > or by calling 570-788-1212 ext 407.
