Welcome to Sacred Heart Catholic Church


Pastor’s Corner

· Our hearts are moved by the enduring generosity and abundant love of God.

· The truth of our existence is this:  God loves us!  His disposition toward us, his sons and daughters, is that we should again and again encounter God’s abundant love.  Our challenge?  How do we respond to such a gift?  Will we strive to be as generous as possible with our own resources?  Will we be limitless in our forgiveness?

· The reading from Isaiah affirms that God is always with us, helping us respond to the needs in our lives.  In the second reading, Saint Paul asks us to see that absolutely nothing can separate us from the love of God.  In the Gospel, we see God’s love in action as Jesus, moved by compassion, miraculously feeds all who have gathered.

· This being Good Samaritan Sunday, our generosity and compassion toward others, allows us, and those in need, to experience the abundant love of God in our lives.                             Father Burch
