Fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time - February 5, 2023

From the Desk of Father Davis

Wednesday, May 25, 2022

In most households, there is frequently a delineation of responsibilities and a segregation of duties. Perhaps Mom takes care of the kitchen. Dad takes care of paying the bills, and perhaps the details of household repairs. One of the kids takes out the garbage, another washes and dries the dishes. Perhaps yet another vacuums and cleans the floor, perhaps also taking care of the pets. Yes; being part of a family means sharing the responsibilities of the household, everyone doing something. In a very real way, the Church is organized around a similar sense of family responsibility. All of us must do our part. All of us must do something.

Meditación del Padre Gustavo

Friday, September 30, 2022

Las expresiones sal y luz del mundo nos lleva a un encuentro con Jesús y de alguna forma nos ayuda a manifestar la gloria de Dios que está en los cielos a través de las buenas obras. Esas buenas intenciones de las que dice el profeta Isaías en la primera lectura ‘"Comparte tu pan con el hambriento, abre tu casa al pobre sin techo, viste al desnudo y no des la espalda a tu propio hermano”.

ABCD - Legacy of Charity

Thursday, January 19, 2023

For the past 65 years, the Archdiocese of Miami has been bringing the love of Christ to people - no matter who they are or where they live. That has been made possible, in part, because of people like you. Through the Archbishop’s Charities and Development Drive, the ABCD, you help the church bring the gift of God’s love to those most in need- above and beyond what happens in your parish. The good works that ABCD makes possible are a testimony to our faith, our love, and our compassion.

What will your legacy be? What are you doing now that will be remembered? What impact are you making on others? Those who leave a lasting legacy are those that follow the two most important commandments: Love God with all your heart and love others as yourself. Make a gift of love and hope to the ABCD today.
