Welcome to
St. John Neumann Catholic Church!

A Message From Fr. Pat...

To my dear St. John Neumann Parish family:

We will be serving new coffee here at St. John Neumann.

The fact that I am beginning my weekly column with this seemingly mundane and inconsequential fact may have you scratching your heads.  But, frankly, after almost six years of drinking the coffee we buy for our kitchen, I can’t take it anymore.  The regular coffee is bad enough, but, when I switched to decaf, it got even worse.  I enjoy coffee, and, while I certainly don’t expect it to taste like a milkshake, I don’t want to be repulsed by it. 

Now, don’t get your hopes up.  It is not as if we are hiring a barista and taking individual orders at the kitchen window, so that every cup of coffee will be a preview of heaven.  But I (we) had to make a change.  The status quo was not only not good enough, it was not good.

I hope that, somewhere in your Lenten journey, you have had a similar experience, not in “coffee matters”, but in “soul matters.”  Perhaps in your prayer, fasting and almsgiving, you have discovered something in your life that needs to change, permanently.  I can guarantee you that there is something that God is asking you to change.  After all, nobody’s perfect, right?  And, that truth is, most people are FAR from perfect, myself included.

Today begins Passiontide, the last two weeks of the days leading up to Easter.  The images of the Church have been covered, so there is no place to look but within.  When you look at yourself, what do you see?  What parts of you need to die before you can rise with Him to new life?

Maybe we can talk about it over coffee sometime soon? J

-Fr. Pat
