26th Sunday of the Year

Letter from Fr. Richard
Dear Brothers & Sisters,
The church is not an exclusive club, or an elitist society.  It is a universal society, all embracing of the human race.  Our tendency is to exclusivism.  If God does not call others in the same way as us, we tend to think that their calling cannot be genuine.  There is a saying: NO SALVATION OUTSIDE THE CHURCH.  It sounds soexclusive………… but WHEREVER THERE IS SALVATION, THERE IS THE CHURCH.  That does not sound so exclusive.  Jesus is saying as much in the Gospel today………wherever the SPIRIT OF GOD BLOWS, there is salvation at work.
 Have a good week!
 Fr. Richard
