POWER STRUGGLE

Power struggles occur on every level of society, from the world stage to relationships at work, to our own homes. We struggle for position in the hierarchy of power: Who has power over whom? How do they wield it? What is the source of that power? What is the healthy response? In this Sunday’s Gospel reading the Pharisees engage Jesus in a power struggle over whether Jews should show tribute to Caesar by paying taxes. Jesus’ response puts this and every struggle for power into perspective. In harmony with the words of Isaiah and Paul, Jesus teaches us that God is the ultimate source of all power - the power of earthly rulers, the Pharisees, Jesus, the Church, and the power within ourselves.

As our Parish is preparing for emergency preparedness for situations, we are calling on all parishioners whose occupations/professions are in medical fields or law enforcements to register with us.

We are forming the Responder teams in order to be ably assist the Church in the event of emergencies during Masses. If you think you can contribute and make a difference, please sign up at the booth at the main entrance.
