St. Matthew Parish 

Sunday, June 20 is the Twelfth Sunday in Ordinary Time. God’s power is on full display in this selection of readings. His ability to order all things according to his will is mighty indeed, but it’s the storm that gives us the perspective needed to see that. The stormy periods of our lives, then, are not total losses. If we pay careful attention and allow the Spirit to enlighten us, we notice in them the hand of God reaching out to us, sustaining us, calming the whirlwind. We advance the cause of building trust in the Lord more in times of trial than in those of tranquility; it’s a fact. The Christian doesn’t hearken to be put to the test, but when we are, we use those experiences to occasion more confidence in the God who loves us.  ~ Father Allan Varlaki, Pastor
