Letter from Father Richard

Dear Brothers and Sisters

Motivation and intention are at the heart of all our actions. In the life of Jesus we observe an internal struggle to do things for the right reason.

The temptation of Christ, at the beginning of His public ministry, is an example of that struggle. Why Jesus goes to the Father in prayer, and out to people in His public ministry, is so that He constantly touches base with His Father to make sure He is not going askew.

No matter how well we begin a task in the church, we too are prey to going astray unless we are constantly in touch with God in prayer. The gospel today gives us an example of how we can go astray.

Keep serving, but be God’s servant first, and others' thereafter.

Yours,

Fr. Richard
