How We Can Respond To God As a Truly Thankful People:“This is My Parish”
It is composed of people like me. We make it what it is. It will be friendly, if I am friendly. Its pews will be filled, if I help to fill them. It will do great work, if I work. It will contribute generously to our community, if I am a generous giver. It will bring others into its worship and family, if my joy in my God is a light to them. It will be a church of loyalty, peace and love, of courage and faith, and a parish with a noble spirit, if I, who make it what it is, am filled with these qualities also. Therefore, with the help of God,
I shall dedicate myself to the call of Christ to develop the qualities that I want my parish to have.
