Jesus, in today’s Gospel, reveals that God’s love extends to all humanity.
In the sign of His Cross we see into the heart of God; mercy and compassion, not condemnation.
Anyone who but looks to God with eyes of faith will be saved and this happens by grace, not by our own efforts.
It comes through the gift of Christ sharing with us the life of God.

Thank You    

Our entire family would like to extend a heartfelt appreciation for all the support we received from the parishioners at Holy Name Parish after the passing of Tom Stenson.  Your expressions of sympathy and prayers offered were very comforting.  We were truly touched by the funeral Mass offered by Fr. Cosmas.  “Thank you” to the C.W.L. for the wonderful reception at Rideau Acres and for the support of the Knights of Columbus during this very difficult time.
We’ll sure miss him.

We were sitting in church a few weeks ago while the minister delivered a sermon based on the timeless story of the prodigal son.
When he got to the point where the father sees his son returning and races out to meet him, the minister said “Throwing wide his arms, the father said…”
At which point my younger son leaned over to me and whispered “ you’re grounded!”
