Fr. Geary’s Letter, 9-27-2020

Dear Parishioners of St. James:

Praised be Jesus Christ!

     It is never too late to say ‘yes’ to God. Maybe we have said ‘no’ to Him for years. Maybe we have tried to please others   before pleasing God. Maybe we are afraid of what saying ‘yes’ to Him will mean for our present situation or for the future.

     Only in doing God’s will do we find happiness. We can lie to ourselves, but we cannot lie to God. He calls each of us to work for Him. He does not force us to work for Him; He invites us to find peace. 

     Have you said ‘no’ to God?  It’s not too late to repent and say ‘yes’ to Him.  It doesn’t matter how old you are or how long you have been hiding from God’s invitation to work for Him. Turn your ‘no’ into a ‘yes’. Go to work for Him.

God bless you,

Fr. Geary
