I am starting to get settled in. It always takes time. I have enjoyed meeting so many of the parishioners. Thank you for your warm welcome and hospitality. I really do cherish your kindness. To me it is a sign of God’s presence.
Nothing is normal for the time being. It can feel like there is always the shadow of Covid-19, even on a good day. Yet during this time of turbulence, I have always repeated to myself a very old Catholic saying, “The Cross is steady while the world is turning.” I have held onto this saying closely since March and haven’t let go of it yet. I really believe this. The cross of Jesus Christ must always be our anchor during change. This is where true peace can only be found.
