Jesus said to his disciples:
“Stop judging, that you may not be judged.
For as you judge, so will you be judged,
and the measure with which you measure will be measured out to you.”
Let’s be honest. We love to criticize. We thrive on watching television pundits slam those who do not share their opinions. We eagerly look for the faults in someone else, who seems to have it all. We mentally judge the clothes, or the intelligence, or the behavior of coworkers friends, and others we come into contact with. Some of us are hardest on our own families.
But in today’s homily, Father Jerry offers an alternative: recognizing our own shortcomings and failings, to develop compassion for those around us. See his new video above.
As more parishioners feel safe and comfortable attending Mass in-person at All Hallows, we wanted to let you know that Father Jerry plans to send daily videos to you through Independence Day, July 4th. He has enjoyed the opportunity to share God’s Word with you at your home, each and every day since March of 2020. And he cherishes the notes, cards and letters that you have mailed to him in gratitude.
We invite anyone who has been engaged, especially because they are homebound or have mobility issues, to please contact the parish office for a Home Eucharistic Minister to visit you. Write to firstname.lastname@example.org or call (858) 459-2975. May God continue to bless you in all ways.
