The Deaf Hear and the Mute Speak

Have you ever witnessed miraculous healing?  Was it a friend, teammate, family member, or even yourself?  

God wants us healed!  He wants all of His creation whole again!  Signs of healing and wonders would accompany the Messiah, the Old Testament prophets affirmed: the blind would see, the deaf would hear, and the lame would leap!  When Jesus began His miraculous healings, many believed that this was indeed the evidence that He was the chosen one, the Son of God.

To prepare our hearts before we go to Holy Mass this weekend and to learn more about how God is offering the gift of healing to us all watch this short video on the Flocknote email.

We  look forward to seeing you at any of the Holy Mass times this weekend wherein Father James will be preaching, or stop by to visit Jesus at the Blessed Sacrament Chapel or at daily Mass during the week.
