Communion Prayer

Be content. Be content.

We are the Body of Christ.

We have found Him, He has found us.

We are in Him, He is in us.

There is nothing further to look for,

except for the deepening of this life

we already possess.

  Be content.

Welcome SS Cosmas & Damian, St. Gertrude, St. Mary! 

Isaiah 55:6-9    Psalm 145 Philippians 1:20c-24, 27a           Matthew 20:1-16a

Jesus often taught some of the most profound lessons in life through parables. They were powerful teaching tools, dramatic challenges to the very way we think.

They confront our prejudices.
