Reflections from a Carpenter’s Angle
That Special Touch
How often we use this phrase to admire the work or
service of someone that is able to give us what we
want. In today's gospel only Jesus can give the man
with leprosy that special touch that will make him whole
again. Yet we each have been where the leper in today's
story is isolated. I am sure we all can think of a time
that our failures, shame, sickness and or pain has
separated us from the ones we love. We feel like we
have leprosy. We believe our isolation is terminal and
there is no cure. But the good news is that Jesus has that
special touch. He can heal us. He and only he can make
us whole again. Jesus alone can restore our hope! Only
Jesus can remove our shame and disgrace! Only Jesus
can restore us to the place of sons and daughters of God.
This weekend we celebrate our 99th year as members of
Saint Joseph Church. How many of us have been out of
touch? We have not been in touch with Jesus. We have
not been in touch with his Church. We have not touched
the needs of those in our community here. Now is the
perfect time to change that. Now is the time to come
home to St. Joe's. Come to where that special touch of
our Lord Jesus Christ can make us whole again.
Saint Joseph foster our love for Jesus,
Father Sodano

Mission: The Family Fully Alive.
February’s theme is Two Become One: “We are not made
to be alone. Human beings need and complete each other.
Friendship and community satisfy that longing with bonds of
common interest and love. Marriage is a uniquely intimate
form of friendship that calls a man and woman to love each
other in the manner of God’s covenant. Marriage is a
Sacrament. Married love is fruitful and offered without
reservation. This love is in the image of Jesus’s faithfulness to
the Church.”
