St. Theresa's Parish
Message from our Pastor:
We must never forget the ultimate sacrifice of so many brave men/women.
They served their country with pride and the conviction that what they were fighting for, was also worth dying for. Sadly, the ending of these wars did not bring lasting peace in our world. Civil unrest, violence & war, death/destruction continues to spread on a global level. Militant groups/hate-based organizations such as ISIS continue to threaten world peace.
The other week, Islamic militants ambushed a bus carrying Coptic Orthodox Christians on a pilgrimage to St. Samuel the Confessor, a remote desert monastery south of the Egyptian capital Cairo, killing at least 10 and wounding 12. The attack last year targeted churches in Cairo, all claimed by the Islamic State group, and took the lives of more than 100 Christian men, women and children. These Christian souls were murdered, simply because they believed in Christ. Egypt's Christians account for 10 percent of the country's 100 million people. Pray for them, that they may be strong in their faith and persevere in times of persecution, suffering and death.
A fundamental rule of being a disciple of Christ is the necessity to make sacrifices. Faith must lead to concrete actions and choices that are selfless & sacrificial. During this month of November, a time to remember the Souls in Purgatory, let's keep in our prayers these souls and all those who have been martyred for the Christian faith and all those who died in loving service of God and country.
May we have the courage to stand up for justice and truth, be willing to die for what we believe as Christians, and give whatever sacrifice our hearts are willing to give!
Lest we forget! Fr David Kowalski
