Father Simon Says – May 25, 2022 – Angels Among Us

First Reading –Acts 17:15, 22—18:1

  • While we should try to inflict suffering on ourselves, the Christian doesn’t try to avoid pain, but rather embrace it. We find meaning in suffering by uniting it to Jesus Christ and the suffering he endured with his Cross.

Letters:

  • Abe – Is it okay to sing Pan de Vida in Church?
  • Jesus – Would an Angel show up to a person as an Angel showed up to me?
  • Jordan – Since Jesus is part of the Trinity can we say we receive God when we receive communion.
  • Email – I am a 26 year old man and many of my piers don’t go to church. Why don’t more young people attend Catholic Church?
