Message from the Archbishop


Seek the Lord – July

Every Catholic should know the definition of a sacrament as “an outward sign instituted by Christ to give grace.” And what s grace? The “Catechism of the Catholic Church” calls grace “participation in the life of God.” That is a font that never runs dry.

Moreover, the grace poured out by the Holy Spirit in the sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist, Reconciliation, Holy Orders, Matrimony and Anointing of the Sick does not only bless and enrich the recipient, it has bountiful effects on the rest of the community as well.

Priests, for example, are not bestowed Holy Orders for their own benefit, but to empower them to celebrate the sacraments and preach the Gospel . . .
