News from St. Patricia Parish
“Light your lamps and be like servants who await their master’s return...”
-Luke 12:35-36
Dear Parishioners,

Summer is a time for weddings. We often hear Paul’s First Letter to the Corinthians, Chapter 13:1-13...
...Paul’s poem is more than mere moralizing (“please try harder to behave like this!”). It does not just celebrate the fact that love is the greatest thing in God’s world. It doesn’t just explain what love will mean in practice (patient, kind, not jealous or boastful, and so on). The poem says much more, especially when you reflect on the last paragraph....
