Fr. Lou's anniversary
On July 19, 2014, Fr. Lou celebrated his 50th anniversary of ordination and 50 years of continuous ministry at Our Lady of Pompei.
Thank you, Fr, Lou for your ministry, service, and dedication!
Once again, we celebrate the passing of time as the year 2014 becomes part of the past, and 2015 marks the beginning of our future. The celebration is mostly on the wild side, with fireworks, concerts, all night parties, and of course, plenty of food and alcohol. And then the usual traditional greeting, Happy New Year, repeated innumerable times. But what is the meaning of these words. I am certain that every one gives the greeting its special meaning, but today I would like to ask God. "Lord what do you wish your children for the new year?". And I can hear Him say, peace, joy, meaningful life, ability to feel His love as the Father of us all. He wishes us the ability to fill our minds with light of His truth and the depth of His wisdom. He wants to guide us through the new year with His laws which are in fact the gate to true freedom. The giver of life wants to help us discover the values that make life worth living - family, friendship, the miracle of human growth, the innocence of children, the enthusiasm of youth, the wisdom of the elders. He who is love wants to fill our hearts with this most beautiful of human gifts and will guide us into the warm world of strong love that cares for all and is ever willing to lend a helping hand to others, to give to the needy, to share a word of comfort to a troubled soul, to bring a bit of joy to those who suffer, to make a positive difference in the lives of the neighbors. So let us make the Lord's greeting our own, and then the New Year will truly be a happy one.
