Welcome to St. Louise Church -
February 1, 2015 - Fourth Sunday in Ordinary Times
And they went into Capernaum; and immediately on the Sabbath he entered the synagogue and taught. And they were astonished at his teaching, for he taught them as one who had authority, and not as the scribes. And immediately there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit; and he cried out, "What have you to do with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are, the Holy One of God." But Jesus rebuked him, saying, "Be silent, and come out of him!" And the unclean spirit, convulsing him and crying with a loud voice, came out of him. And they were all amazed, so that they questioned among themselves, saying, "What is this? A new teaching! With authority he commands even the unclean spirits, and they obey him." And at once his fame spread everywhere throughout all the surrounding region of Galilee.
MAKING CHRIST'S CHURCH
We love our Church, with all her limitations, and her riches too, she is our Mother. For this reason we respect her, and while we do so, we dream that she will never lose her beauty. May she be the Church where it is good to live, where your can breathe, and say what you think-a Church of Freedom. A Church which listens before speaking and welcomes instead of judging, forgives without wishing to condemn, and announces rather than denounces. A Church of mercy and of where the simplest of our brothers and sisters will understand what the others are saying. Our Church will be where the wisest of leaders will know that he doesn't know all, and where the people of God will be revealed in its entirety-a Church of wisdom.
