Welcome to St. Louise Church -
September 28, 2014
"What do you think? A man had two sons; and he went to the first and said, `Son, go and work in the vineyard today.' And he answered, `I will not'; but afterward he repented and went. And he went to the second and said the same; and he answered, `I go, sir,' but did not go. Which of the two did the will of his father?" They said, "The first." Jesus said to them, "Truly, I say to you, the tax collectors and the harlots go into the kingdom of God before you. For John came to you in the way of righteousness, and you did not believe him, but the tax collectors and the harlots believed him; and even when you saw it, you did not afterward repent and believe him."
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.
