Welcome to St. Justin and
St. Michael Parishes

 

Father Emmanuel Ihemedu

 

"We are two Catholic churches, one Catholic family striving to live a life of complete service to God and neighbor. At Saint Justin and Saint Michael, Christ is the host and Christ welcomes all. I join my parishioners to invite you to worship with us on Sunday. No matter where you are in life, no matter where you stand in life-single, married, divorced, single mother, single father, homeless, immigrant, handicapped in some way, sick, lonely and alone, widow, grieving - we welcome you."
          - Father Emmanuel Ihemedu, Pastor

MY PRAYER FOR YOU THIS WEEK

Triumphalism is hardly the most evident color of the Christian faith although it is undeniably its cornerstone. Christian triumphalism is one shrouded in and often identifiable with rather unattractive virtues, to the secular mind, of humility, gentleness, kindness, tolerance, forgiveness, humility and suffering.  In his life and ministry in Palestine, Jesus did so much to avoid any form of sugar coating and to highlight these foundational components of his message so much so that they seemed to be the most predominant themes and even sometimes became counterproductive.  'Whoever who wants to be my disciple must first deny themselves, take up his cross and follow me'(Matt 16:24). The rich young man turned away from him sad (Matt 19:16-26); By his triumphant entry into Jerusalem today, Jesus tells us that suffering and glory are two sides of one and the same coin.  The ultimate goal of the Christian is to triumph over: adversities, sin, evil and death.  But such a triumph is usually hard fought. The paradox of the Christian life is that It is life through death, light through darkness, gain through loss and finding through loosing, for: 'Unless a grain of wheat falls down and dies it cannot bear fruit'(Jn 12:24). Dear God, help me to know that my sufferings are only transitory and that they are pathways to your eternal glory, Amen.
