Dear Friend,

With all that is going on in the world, we are reminded by Teresa of Avila (1515-82): Christ has no body on earth but yours. Yours are the eyes with which he looks compassionately on this world. Yours are the feet with which he walks to do good. Yours are the hands with which he blesses all the world. Christ has no body now on earth but yours! We are reminded whatever our age or state in life, we are called to be Jesus to all we encounter! We as Christians are called to be Jesus to our world.

In late September and in October, we will be offering adult education based on the book Emotionally Healthy Spirituality. Now is a good time to start reading it. The book sells for $18.99; our price is only $16.00. Stop by the Cross Shop today and purchase a copy! The cost of the sessions is $15.00, and it includes another book. If there is an issue with payment, please know scholarships are available. Father Dale and members of our community will lead the class. Please put these dates on your calendar: September 22, 29, October 6, 13, and 20.

Feed My Starving Children is meeting tomorrow, Thursday, September 16 from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm. This is an excellent means to assist others who are struggling. For more information email Deacon Peter Klemens at: [email protected].

Don’t forget about our weekly reflections that come out on Monday morning on our PWC website. Different members of our community share a reflection each week. Go to: Weekly Reflections. This week is Deacon Peter Klemens. Next Monday we look forward to reading Father Dale’s reflection.

Let us ask Jesus to inspire us and live out the words of Teresa of Avila in our daily life!
