Comedian Jim Gaffigan has a unique way of sharing his faith through his stand-up routines. In a recent video, “Barely Catholic”, he gets more than just the jokes right. How many of us have had a little conversation like this with Jesus?
Did you catch some of the Gospel truth in Mr. Gaffigan’s message?
Jesus loves you. He wants to have a personal relationship with you. He died for your sins. He desires to see you at Mass. He loves you even if you give Him a bunch of excuses.
Another aspect of this video that I loved, “My wife made me come.” Spouses, don’t be afraid to do some gently nudging (not nagging or yelling) to get your significant other to go to Church or confession. It’s our responsibility to help one another get to heaven. Sometimes we all need a little reminder. In the end, it really doesn’t matter why we go, Jesus will still speak into our hearts.
For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him might not perish but might have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through him. – John 3:16-17

HOLY FAMILY GIVING TREE
Our Giving Tree has been a wonderful tradition here at Holy Family for many years. It is our opportunity to help our local needy, showing them that we care and hopefully making their holiday season a little brighter. Please help us to make this our best year ever!! Further details for this years' Giving Tree will be posted in next week's Bulletin.
More news can be found here.
Our 10:30 Mass can be streamed at anytime in the McCabe Room. Please be sure to contact the office ahead of time so the equipment can be set up.
An elevator and nearby rest room make this an option for those who wish to attend Mass but have difficulty getting into the church.
Rather than miss Mass because of active little ones, parents may wish to bring their youngsters to the Resource Room where they can share in the service with them without the constraints of a pew. There is room to move around and a library of children's bible stories for them to enjoy.
All are welcome. Please suggest this to family and friends who may be looking for an opportunity, even temporarily, to attend Mass at Holy Family.
