Weekly Reflection: The Gospel of Luke paints the vivid picture of Jesus in the temple where Mary and Joseph find him after searching for him for three days. Jesus responds to their questions and concern by telling them he must follow God’s plan. How do you imitate the faith of the Holy Family and share the bond of love in your own family?

Isaac Hecker Quote “May not the fullness of time have come, seeing that the Church has been, as an external organization, greatly strengthened by the definition of the Vatican Council, and seeing the great facility of communication throughout the world by electricity & steam, when by a greater effusion of the Holy Spirit in the life of the Church the great work of the conversion of the world will be brought about?” [Diary begun in Egypt, 1873] Paulist Fathers’ Mission Statement We give the Word of God a voice in pulpits and print, on radio and television, on the Web and the wide screen. We search out those who have no church home, and welcome home those who have been away. We share the passion of St. Paul for unity in faith and solidarity in mission among all the baptized in the body of Christ. We build bridges of respect and collaboration with people of other world religions. We welcome people of diverse racial and cultural backgrounds in our parish, city center and campus worshipping communities. The Gospel we preach calls for all the children of God to be treated with dignity and justice. We claim Isaac Hecker as our founder, the Holy Spirit as our primary guide, St. Paul as our patron and laity as our valued partners in mission. We are the Paulist Fathers.
