“No sin or crime is greater than God’s mercy. The sacrifice of the Cross reveals that Christ’s greatest desire is to forgive those with a repentant heart.”

DIOCESE OF BELLEVILLE:
Imagine a lamp. When you flip its switch, light appears immediately. Now think about the sun. Did you know that it takes sunlight more than eight minutes to reach Earth? That's because the sun is so far away. The stars are even farther. It takes years for their light to travel across space to reach us. Our faith is a little like that. Long ago, Abram believed in God. He followed God's commands. Because of this, God gave him a new name, Abraham, and promised that many believers would come after him. Many have! Over thousands of years, countless people have come to believe in god. They have shared their faith all over the world, even handed it down to us. Today, believers are as numerous as the stars in the sky. May we shine just as brightly. Have a great week, Fr. Ptak
