How often do we put seemingly important things before the Lord ...preparing for a family party, vacation time, etc. I am always amazed when I ask the children in the CFF program, "How many of you went to mass over the weekend?" and they reply that the family was just too busy to attend mass. In the Gospel, Jesus told us that we must take up our cross and follow Him. He never said it would be easy to be His disciple; but the reward is incomparable. As we begin summer and many of us enjoy time to relax, I pray that you do follow Him and not take a vacation from the Lord.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
Father Anthony Siriani
