Fr. Bozada – Focus on the Gospel

My Dear People,

The real work of the Holy Apostles began when Jesus ascended into Heaven. Before the Crucifixion, Jesus trained His Apostles to preach and teach in the Name. Anxious to begin the journey, the Apostles ask Our Lord if He would destroy by fire, those who rejected the Message. Jesus quietly rebukes them. He continued to journey from village to village bringing good news to the poor.

The focus had to be on the Gospel. This is why Jesus tells them that the one who sets a hand to the plow and looks at what is behind, is unfit for the Kingdom of God.

So they went forth, and continued to announce the coming of the Kingdom. We are called to the same radical lifestyle longing for Our Lord while living in the world. Pray for the grace to keep one eye on the Lord and the other on this world.

Entrusting you to the care of Our Lady,

Fr. Mark Bozada

May we turn to God for His guidance and direction as we strive to serve one another and the Church with the gifts God has entrusted to our care.
