3 Churches Attacked on the Weekend in Maryland and Priest Consoles Parishioners after Fire and Vandalism at Catholic Church - VIDEO
We are the ones who have been nourished by God consecrated by God we are the ones whom God has called to be the light of the earth to the to the world and the salt of the earth and I am reminded of a story I once heard about an occasion in Russia after the Bolshevik revolution had just taken over. A member of the Bolshevik said to an old woman as she entered her church we will pull down your churches and you will have nothing to remind you of your God and she said really can you pull down the stars from the sky too and that's what we are here today, and so I want to begin here with just a verse of scripture from Romans chapter 8 who "Then who can separate us from the love of Christ will hardship or distress or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or the sword? As it is written for your sake we are being slain all day long, we are treated like sheep to be slaughtered, no throughout all these things we are conquerors because of Him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life nor angels nor principalities, nor present things, nor things to come, nor powers nor height, nor death, nor any other creature will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord. So today I'm very happy to be with you even here as we come to be the Body of Christ to be the salt of the earth and the light to the world. So let us stand now and begin our prayers in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, grace of our Lord Jesus Christ the love of God the Father and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.
