Reflections with Fr. Mark
The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; upon those who dwelt in the land of gloom a light has shone.” This passage may take on a deeper meaning this year as we gather after months of pandemic pain.  

The darkness of our journey, especially for those who have suffered loss during these past months, gives way to the hope and promise in our celebrations today.  As we gather to celebrate Christmas today, virtually or in person, may Christ’s love become the blessed presence felt in your coming together.

On behalf of the pastoral staff of St. Luke the Evangelist, we wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year.  May the coming months see a restoration as we celebrate the promises made through the fulfillment of prophetic scripture we hold close to our hearts.

Blessings,

Fr. Mark

A Christmas Prayer

Jesus,
Time and time again, I have asked you,
“Teach me your ways, show me your will.”

Yet, when you bid me
to abandon everything for you,
I am afraid.

Counting the cost is not the way
of your follower.

Open my frightened heart
to commit my life to you,
without reserve,
once again.

Renew my weary soul
with a new passion for your kingdom
and a trusting attachment to you,
my Savior and companion.

Amen.
