Text Box: MESSAGE FROM 
FATHER JENSON

The Lord casts out demons from the possessed in our Gospel this weekend.  Jesus came to take away the power of evil from our lives which breeds sin and division amongst us.  For Him to do that for us, we must commit to Him and follow His teaching and example.  We must be people of prayer who bring the items that we see in the news into our daily prayers for the world and its needs, especially now as our country seems to be slipping into a recession.  As a new administration takes up office we should also be holding up our newly elected government officials in prayer as well.  Pray that they will seek the wisdom of God to know best how to determine the genuine needs of the people and how to serve them in a way that is in accord with Godís will.  

The post card campaign initiated by our nationís bishops to help inform our elected officials about the peopleís desire to retain laws which currently attempt to protect the life of the unborn is another example of seeking to help to serve Godís will by helping our government officials realize the sentiments of those who elected them concerning the protection of human life at all its fragile stages, especially the unborn.  Post cards will be available at church when we receive them.  There has been a glitch in receiving them at some of our parishes.

Father Glen Jenson, Pastor
