A Message from Our Pastor

July 03, 2022

Dear People of St. Patrick Parish,

Jesus tells the seventy-two followers to “rejoice because your names are written in heaven.”

God did not create anyone to go to hell, He wants us all to be in heaven one day. But, God did give us a free will to accept or reject His love shown for us.

God did not create a body and a soul in a fetus to be murdered by its
biological parents.

God did not create children to be murdered in their classrooms by insane and hateful people.

God did not create a child to be abused by anyone at anytime and that child does belong to God.

God did not create human beings to be hated, tortured, abused, killed because they were in the front of guns in the hands of hateful people.

God did not create humans to be put to death because they are sick or a bother to take care of by their families or society.

God did not create lives to be victimized by rape, drugs, alcohol and the power to make someone do whatever we may want.

For those who fought and gave their lives to free people and to provide for their God given rights, did so to protect other human beings from power crazy leaders who have no respect for God and all that God has done for humanity.

This Independence Day, we have much to pray for here in America and let’s make every effort to come to Mass at 9:00am on that day and show our love for God and to give thanks to Him for all His love for us.

God Bless,
Fr. Larry Young
