From the Pastor

Grip the Plow Firmly

06-26-2016Fr. Don Kline, V.F.

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Our readings beg the question: Why are you here? I don't mean why are you here at St. Joan of Arc or Phoenix or the United States. I mean something much deeper. Why are you here on earth? To put it another way: Why do you exist at all? Wow, that is deep but there is a correct answer and it comes from Our Lord. We are here to love God and love our neighbor now and always and forever. This answer is expressed in the readings as a calling to be intentional disciples of Our Lord Jesus.
