Hello hello 🔔 resentment or ill feelings or hate are poison that you prepare for your enemies and that you end up drinking yourself. The only way to live a joy-filled life in the midst of having enemies and stones thrown at you is to do what St. Stephen did, which we hear about in the Book of Acts in the Bible; Stephen didn’t focus on their stones or their hate and jealousy but, rather, the Bible says he looked up to heaven while he was being stoned; Stephen focused on Jesus. So while stones are hurled at you, focus on Jesus.
This is what I am doing right now as I begin a new chapter in my priestly life, starting a Polish National Catholic parish in Las Vegas. Divine Mercy Parish will be opening up next month where ALL will be welcome - not just Poles or those of Polish descent but all people hungry for THE WORD of God and the holy sacraments of the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic faith as handed down to us through the apostles. I can’t wait to share many many smiles with so many people that my priestly heart has missed so much in Las Vegas. Please make sure you keep me in your prayers, you know you are in mine!
