Message From Fr. John...

To my dear St. John Neumann Parish family: 

             Imagine the joy of the Apostles when they found that the Lord still lived.  It must have been incredible to know that they were not abandoned.  To reinforce their joy and their faith, the Lord told them on the day of the Ascension, that he would be with them always, even until the end of the age. 

              Last week I spoke of how we can sometimes feel abandoned by God.  This week in the example above and in the story of Naaman in the second book of Kings and the ten lepers in the Gospel, we encounter the joy that comes to those who await these periods of suffering with faith.  Whether the joy comes in this life or in eternal life, the Lord constantly reassures us that he is with us.  He never abandons us, but is always working for our salvation even when we do not realize it.  His death, when it seems that he was taken from us, is actually when he offers the sacrifice of his life to save us from death.  He didn’t leave the Apostles, but was leading them and us to a deeper faith so that one day we will be filled with great joy when we are with him forever. 

            Naaman gives us a wonderful example of faith. Being cured of leprosy, he never will abandon the God who saved him.  Let us be like him and never abandon the God who has saved us.

Fr. John
