Fr. Dwight’s
“Sunday is the Lord’s DAY; not the
Lord’s HOUR!”
It has been thoroughly refreshing for me to visit the land of my birth and to see the many people who were
absolutely instrumental in teaching me how to love God from a child, who helped in so many ways to give me
multiple examples of holiness and then in turn, instructed me in the forming of my own faith. And though some
have passed onto glory now, many of them are still around - older, wiser and even more faithful, if that is even
possible! I owe them everything for each of them were instruments of the grace of God in my life.
They made me see that I am, NO! that we are all a mosaic of faith made up of many lives and
experiences that touch ours that eventually becomes OUR unique story - an emerging solved puzzle of faith
with countless different configurations all WITH ONE GOAL- to make it to heaven and to enjoy eternal life.
And I sang - using this big operatic baritone voice the Lord has given me in the concert last Friday. I forgot the
true joy I feel when I sing at full voice the praises of God and let my voice go in worship of my Lord Jesus
Christ. I was told years ago by my late Archbishop of Trinidad and Tobago, Anthony Pantin, to let it go and
sing for my sanity and my sanctity. I had forgotten the gravity of that statement and it's impact on my life and
so I have vowed to the Lord that I will sing much more and again - as in times past and give God the glory in it
all! Oh! We will never fully comprehend the impact we can have on people's lives if and when we reach out.
That which we say can either break down or build up. Our words can either hopefully heal or irreparably hurt.
Our attitudes can either be a magnet to others drawing them deeper into Christ or a closed door that can repel
anyone who might want to "try Jesus on for size." And our example of good Catholic Christian living can be so
generous, so rich, so fertile as to inspire others to fall in love with Our Savior Christ and give their lives to Him
just like we have - and even more than we have!
The living out of our Christianity is indeed the crucible were vocations are born and nourished, where healing
happens, where love of God is strengthened in Adoration, where true praise and worship is manifested, and
deep forgiveness realized in our own lives and then practiced by us to others.
This is what it truly means to be stewards of our Catholic Faith - stewards with the intent purpose of giving
away the LOVE we have each received as pure gift and not merited.
We, stewards of the mysteries of God, all benefit from the purposeful living out of our Catholicism - not only
sharing the light of truth to the ignorant, but heat of the Holy Spirit to the cold of heart.
God Bless,
Fr. Dwight

Stewardship of Treasure

Sacrificial Donations : $ 935.00
Thank you!
From our
Holy Father,
Pope Francis
Vatican City, Nov 4, 2014 / 7:09 am
In his homily on Tuesday Pope Francis cautioned not to be too self-reliant, saying that this attitude can lead to a self-centered egoism that is afraid of
God and refuses to hear or accept his generosity.
“It is so difficult to listen to the voice of Jesus, the voice of God, when you believe that that the whole world revolves around you: there is no
horizon, because you become your own horizon,” the Pope told mass-goers in the Vatican’s Saint Martha residence on Nov. 4.
The pontiff centered his reflections on the parable Jesus told in the day’s Gospel, taken from Luke, in which the master of a house prepares a feast
and invites his friends, who refuse and give excuses as to why other things are more important.
While most people like being invited to dinner, there was something about this one that the guests didn’t like, the Pope observed, saying that the
three who gave their excuses in the Gospel passage are an example of many of us.
He pointed to the first one who says he needs to tend his new field so that he can feel “powerful, vanity, pride and he prefers this to sitting at table
among others,” while the second uses his oxen as an excuse not to waste time with others.
The third guest uses his wife as an excuse, the pontiff noted, saying that the man was selfish because he wanted all of her affection for himself,
rather than bringing her to the dinner with him.
“In the end (they) prefer their own interests rather than sharing dinner together: They do not know what it means to celebrate,” the Bishop of Rome
said, noting that if the dinner had been a small gathering for business, everyone would have come.
“But what shocked them was the gratuity. Being one among the others, there…this form of egoism of being at the center of everything.”
Pope Francis explained that this form of egoism is often rooted in a fear of God’s gratuity, saying that when Jesus offers something so great that
“even the saint is suspicious,” like he did to the disciples of Emmaus or to Thomas who wanted to touch his wounds, we think it’s better not to get
“We feel safer in our sins, in our limitations, but feel at home; leaving our home to answer God's invitation, go to God’s house, with others? No. I'm
afraid,” Pope Francis said, observing how this is a fear that all Christians have hidden deep inside.
The Roman Pontiff then noted how after the guests refuse to come, the master sends his servant to the streets in order to invite the poor and crippled,
trying to compel them to come to the dinner.
Many times the Lord must do the same with us, he observed, saying that the Lord must compel our own heart and soul “to believe in God's gratuity,
that God’s gift is free, that salvation cannot be bought.”
God’s gift of love and gratuity is the greatest thing he can give us, the Pope explained, saying that when we become afraid and think that we can
obtain holiness on our own “we become a little Pelagian.”
Pope Francis concluded his homily by drawing attention to Jesus’ death on the cross, by which he paid for this banquet with his humiliation and
“And this is the great gratuity. When we look at the crucifix, we should think of it as an invitation to the banquet. Yes, Lord, I am a sinner, I have
many things, but I look at you and go to the banquet of the Father,” he said.
The Pope encouraged attendees to trust, and to have faith that they won’t be disappointed if they allow themselves to attend the banquet of the Lord.
Rather than being afraid of God’s gratuitousness, he said, the Church is asking that we keep our hearts open and do our own part the best that we can
so the Lord can prepare the banquet for us.
