Thank you for your patience and understanding.
 
 
The TRANE A.C. company will be installing a new air conditioning unit in our church on Tuesday, September 25, 2018.  The Daily Mass will be at 7 am and NOT at 8:15 am.  The workers will begin at 7 am.  Exiting our parking lot on September 25, vehicles are able to exit our parking lot ONLY by making a right turn in front of our marquee board and then proceed onto North Road.
Thank you very much for your cooperation and support.

“I AM THE GREATEST”
       Anyone who’s over thirty years old could probably recognize this phrase as coming from Muhammad Ali.  Till today he’s still considered by some as the greatest boxer/fighter that ever lived, and he probably was the greatest because he believed himself to be.  Now imagine yourself standing amidst a room full of people and you ask yourself, “Who, in this room, is the greatest?”  Most people would probably want to think, even if only secretly, that they themselves are the greatest in the room and that’s because from the beginning of time, Adam and Eve included, we were conditioned to be the best, it’s our human nature.  I remember in school being taught about “Survival of the fittest” a phrase that means only the best will survive. In our jobs we’re pushed to work our way “Up the ladder”  We’re taught to be “leaders in the community” and “Pillars of society.”  So, we’re all expected to be the greatest at what we do and who we are.  But this idea reminds me of King Qoheleth in the book of Ecclesiastes, who learned by trying to gain wisdom, that it really doesn’t matter.  “Vanity of vanities, all is vanity” meaning no matter how much we try to be the best, make something of ourselves, amass materialistic things or be the richest, it’s all in vain because in the end we just pass away making room for the next generation and can take nothing with us.  Trying to be the greatest is a futile attempt at life.
       In the gospel today, we hear from Jesus who says, “If anyone wishes to be first, he shall be the last of all and the servant of all.”  In other words, the greatest will be the least.  Jesus is the greatest servant of all.  It sounds contradictory at first, the greatest of the least, but if you think about it he put himself   in the position of one serving his master, meaning he was a servant to the least of us, and he is the best servant to the least of us.  Does that make sense to you?  This would be like a secret service agent taking a bullet for the president.  At the last supper he washed the feet of his disciples who considered themselves to be lower in status compared to their teacher, but his actions in doing so was one of a servant.  His death is the greatest act of service for all people.  He really did take the bullet for all of us as if we were the president he was sworn to protect and serve.  At every Mass he continues to serve his body and blood up to us which should remind us how we should be, as giving and selfless as he is.  Servitude is the responsibility of all baptized in Christ.  From the Pope to the Cardinals, Bishops, Priests, Deacons, Religious and Lay.  No one is any less exempt from being a servant than any other.  In the church our ministries are servants who serve Gods people and not a position of status.  Those who think that serving in ministry is a position of status, meaning being greater than everyone else, please listen to the words in the Gospel today.  What matters in the end is how we humbly serve God, how we humbly serve others, and how we humbly love.
