Prayer in Time of National Anxiety

Let us pray. I come to You, Lord, in this time of uncertainty and confusion that has gripped
our nation and our world. I pray that our leaders and representatives in government are
filled with Your peace, strength and courage. May your gifts of wisdom and understanding,
fortitude and counsel be sought and utilized by them for the well-being of our country. By
their belief and trust in You may they provide capable leadership, promote unity and peace,
and be attentive to the concerns of our people. May Your Church provide support and
comfort; and help strengthen our hope for peace through our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.

20 Sunday in Ordinary Time

Jeremiah 38:4-6,8-10; Hebrews 12:1-4; Gospel: Luke 12:49-53

The readings today are very strong: speak the truth of God and accept whatever suffering comes! Speak the truth of God and know that you will not always bring peace and joy. Speak the truth of God because God wants us to live in truth and seek Him.
The first reading today is from the Book of Jeremiah the Prophet. His own experiences show us what happens when a person tries to be true to what God is saying and because of that attempt, preaches truths that are unpopular. The Christian message today is unpopular. Nice feelings about one another are popular. The hard work of committing oneself to another person in marriage or committing oneself to a community through vows is not popular.
Jeremiah spoke the truth and no one wanted to protect him. If we Christians speak the truth, the civil authorities no longer want to protect us. The movement today in civil society is against the Gospel and against any organized religious expression.
The second reading today is from the Letter to the Hebrews and puts the experience of Jesus before us so that we can know how to live as followers of Jesus: For the sake of the joy that lay before him he endured the cross, despising its shame, and has taken his seat at the right of the throne of God. Consider how he endured such opposition from sinners, in order that you may not grow weary and lose heart.
This reading from the Letter to the Hebrews challenges us to be ready to endure the cross every day and not be ashamed of suffering. We are invited to see Jesus and then not grow weary and lose heart as we try to live the Gospel in our lives.
The Gospel today is from Saint Luke. It also tells us that the Word of God brings division and not peace. If our following of Jesus separates us from others, that is simply the price that we must pay for trying to be faithful. If our love for others invites ridicule, that is simply the price that we must pay.
Over and over again we realize that this life is only a preparation for the life to come. If we begin to make this life the center of our attention, we will forget that there are eternal values that form us. Once we realize that this life is a life that passes and never returns, we can begin to form our lives according to the Gospel: seeking the things that are above and being formed in values that will last forever.
My sisters and brothers, let us face life bravely and with joy. There are ways to live that deepen our humanity and our love for one another. There are also ways to live that lead to eternal death. Let us choose wisely and give thanks to the Lord.

What's New!

Come, Worship With Us on Sunday
     You are invited to join us at 10:00 on any Sunday morning to attend Mass at our church. No matter your background, ethnicity, or denomination, we don't look at that. Just people with good will looking for some place to fill out their souls. If you need comfort, a place to pray, this is the place. We do not judge—it's not up to us to judge.  All are welcome.
     The Mass liturgy is celebrated in English and booklets are available for you to  follow the service in comfort. Please come and worship along side the  friendly people of St. Casimir’s.

A Special Announcement...

     We are very thankful for the response we have received from our websie readers! In the very short period of time since we created our site, we have received many messages from you via the Contact Us page with comments and questions about our activities, and requests for information about our church, our cemetery and the PNCC in general.  How wonderful that is! Thank you very much.

      We would like to apologize, however, for our failure to keep the site current.  We have a lot going on at St. Casimir's and our volunteer parishioners are really very busy.  We are working on a plan to maintain the website on a more current schedule and ask your indulgence. In order to make the site even more interesting, we are in the process of redesigning it as yu will see in the coming weeks....please send us your comments as we progress.

​​​​​​​Your prayers are requested

for the sick, shut ins and those serving in our military.
