Dear Friends,

Non-Christians have a tough time trying to understand it, and we Christians have a tough time trying to explain it. I’m referring to the central mystery of our faith that we call the Trinity.
Simply put we believe in one God who is three divine persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Today’s Gospel passage is from the evangelist John’s Last Supper discourse is not an explanation of the mystery. However, it does have Jesus talking about the Holy Spirit and telling his disciples, and us, that the Spirit will guide us to all truth. This is something to think about, we must let the Spirit guide us to all truth.

Truth has taken a beating in our world. Listen to the political discourse. There are even fact check websites and the irony is that requests for the truth or falsehood of a quote may be given the answer “mostly true” or “mostly false”! Truth can be elusive and we can be very challenged to not lie – to tell the truth.

And yet we must be people of the truth. We cannot compromise in that. Others may lie on their tax returns, their applications for a job, insurance, or a bank loan, their accomplishments in life, the character defects of people they don’t like etc. Let that not be us. We are disciples of Jesus, living in the Spirit of Truth, and we must be people of the truth.

God bless you all,
Father McNamara

Prayer For Priestly Vocations
Prayed at the Ordination of
Fr. Eben McDonald and Fr. Nabor Rios
on June 3, 2012

Father, in every generation you provide ministers of Christ and the Church. We come before you now, asking that you call forth more men to serve our Archdiocese in the ministerial priesthood.
Give us priests who will lead and guide your holy people gathered by Word and Sacrament. Bless us with priestly vocations so that we can continue to be a truly Eucharistic Church, strengthened in our discipleship of Jesus Christ, your Only Son.
Raise up, we pray, men who are generous in their service, willing to offer their lives and all their gifts for your greater glory and for the good of your people.
We make our prayer in the presence and power of the Holy Spirit, through Christ, Our Lord.
