Bulletin Message from Rome

Dear Taylor,

It is wonderful to hear from you (and of course I remember you). I am greatly pleased that you and the Youth Leadership Team (YLT) have been formed, and that you took the time to write me a letter.

Although I cannot remember who said it, these words keep repeating: you, and others like you, are not the future of the Church; rather, you are the present.

This is true and I hope that it lends some strength to your ministry in our home community.

It sounds like you all have made a great start with the activities you have organized, and I encourage you to continue to use your creativity to find more ways to bolster the faith of the Parish and establish greater unity among its members.

Concerning your request for a letter from Pope Francis, I will look into this possibility. I am unaware of how to do so, but I will keep you updated on my progress. I have seen our Holy Father from a distance, and I have heard him speak at his Sunday Angelus Address. Some themes he often speaks on are: being joyful, welcoming & reaching out to others who may be/feel alone, and to pray!

Thank you again for your letter, and I will see what I can do about that letter.

Know of my prayers for you members of YLT and for Guardian Angels Parish.

 

Peace, 

 

Clayton Forner
