Welcome to St. John the Baptist Church

frlopez From the Pastor’s Desk 

Dear friends,

I share this reflection with you

Today the Lord Jesus promises his fearful disciples, “I will come to you” (John 14:18). The Church’s sacraments are visible signs of the Lord Jesus continuing to “come to us” through the power of the Holy Spirit. Each time we share in Christ’s body and blood, He is made present through the Spirit. In a way, the Church’s sacramental life is like my experience of taking out a deck of cards and bending them back and forth in order to bring the memory of my grandmother to life. We take ordinary elements, like bread, wine, water, words, and oil, and when we accompany these elements with sacred gestures and words, we experience the very presence of Jesus Christ. As we look forward to Pentecost, let us grow in our awareness and love for the sacraments that bring us into contact with the Lord Jesus through the power of the Holy Spirit.

God Bless You, 

Fr. Sergio Lopez
