Text Box: MESSAGE FROM 
FATHER JENSON

This Sunday we hear the apostle St. James say in his epistle, where jealousy and jealous ambition exist, there is disorder and every foul practice.  When we are focused on ourselves, and willing to act for our own interest even at the expense of others, there will be violence and needless pain.  Our passions can drive us to bitter and destructive words and actions.  It takes a willingness to submit to the will of God and allowing him to set limits for us and our behavior that will ensure peace and trust among us.  Our feelings are not necessarily the truest guide to how we should act in every situation, especially when we are upset.  Turn to Jesus each day to develop a healthy and strong friendship with him, so that he can calm and direct us when our emotions are hot and hard to control.

Festival:  This is Festival Sunday at Holy Cross.  This will be a wonderful occasion for all of us in our tri-parish cluster.  Father has a new raffle item that you might just want to try bidding on, Padreís Pedal Pub Night.  Come and find out all about this zany opportunity to have a blast with the padre and support a good cause.  Also, there is a dinner to bid on cooked and served by myself and Fr. Simonson at the Holy Cross rectory for eight people.  Come early and bid often.  Remember, as always when attending a church festival, bring a full purse or wallet, and be sure itís empty before you leave!  

Hope to see you all at Holy Cross this Sunday!


Father Glen Jenson, Pastor
