Welcome to St. John the Baptist Church


From the Pastor’s Desk

18th Sunday in Ordinary Time

It is easy to hurt someone who loves us. It is difficult to heal that wound ...
It is easy to dictate rules. It is difficult to follow them ...
Easy is to show victory. It is difficult to accept defeat with dignity ...
It is easy to stumble on a stone. It is difficult to get up ...
Easy is to enjoy life every day. It is difficult to give it true value ...
Easy is to promise someone something. It is difficult to fulfill that promise ...
It's easy to say to say that we love . It is difficult to show it every day ...
It is easy to criticize others. Difficult is to improve oneself ...
Easy is to make mistakes. It is difficult to learn from them ...
It is easy to cry over lost love. It is difficult to take care of it so as not to lose it ...
It is easy to call ourselves Catholic. Difficult is to observe the commandments, live in a state of grace and behave as true children of God.
