My Dear Parishioners,
How are you doing, have you been enjoying each day and every moment of your life? We are in the month of May, and throughout this month, many wonderful things are happening, such as this weekend is Mother’s Day weekend. May God bless our moms and families with His heavenly love. May every family always have each other now and forever in heaven. Thank you, moms, for your great love, sacrifices, and examples of faith for all of us to imitate. As your pastor, I will bestow a special blessing upon all mothers at every Mass this weekend. Please come to church to receive this special blessing from our Lord. Everyone, please make your mom happy this weekend with your love, kindness, and appreciation. Thank you!
Again, let us congratulate our second graders for their sacraments of First Confession and First Holy Eucharist last week. We are happy for you and truly proud of you all. One most beautiful thing about our second graders this year at All Saints is that they have been faithfully attending daily Mass every day. I am very proud of them and their teacher, Mrs. Cris Ouano. She came to us to love our children and to help them grow in their love for Jesus.
As a pastor, I do wish that everyone of us would love Jesus as much as our First Holy Communion children. They were so excited to receive Jesus and to love Him through Holy Communion. Yes, I have been talking to them a lot about the importance of daily prayer to Jesus and that we all must tell Jesus that we love Him. Jesus is the Holy Bread from heaven, and we will have eternal life because of Jesus. He is our only way to heaven; therefore, we all, including myself, must love Him every day, especially today more than ever before. To live is to love Jesus, to become one with Him, and to love Him in our hearts, minds, and souls more than ever before. Jesus, we love you so much---parishioners of All Saints, Fr. Hien
