"There have been some who were so occupied in spreading Christianity that they never gave a thought to Christ." ~ C.S. Lewis The Great Divorce
How often do you get consumed by life. Life today is busy. New technology and ways of communication make it easier to communicate yet seem to cause us to try to ingest so much more information. Our participation with clubs, sports, our children's sports, health, pastime activities, and even helping others and our parish devour our time. Most of these things are good things to be a part of, enriching our relationships with family and friends, improving our well-being, and even spreading Christianity. However we cannot lose focus on the most important relationship of all. Our relationship with Christ.
Are we giving time to Christ each day in prayer? Is He someone we consider a friend and guide on the journey of life? If not, why not? Who is more important then our God and creator? He came down from heaven and took the form of a human being, was crucified and rose from the dead for us. Furthermore He shows us how to live love in our lives by being servants to all, not thinking of ourselves, but of others. So let us, especially as Catholic Christian men, build that relationship with Christ. Let us teach our families and friends to build that relationship as well. We do that by spending time in prayer and meditation with Christ. And by joining Christ, Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity at the Holy Mass each week. How amazing is it that He is there present with us. Let us pray that we can continue to know and grow with Christ everyday of our lives.
Thanks and Many Blessings,
Matt Daniels, Chancellor
