"For having nothing, I shall receive everything from God"
MONTHLY PARISH MAGAZINE - JULY 2019
From the Pastor
With great joy I present you with all editions of our parish magazine, “The Little Way.” The main reason for the creation of this magazine is to magnify God’s work in our church, in our life, and in the events in the world around us. The magazine will contain articles on spiritual life, testimonies of faith, as well as provide information on interesting cultural events.Most importantly, however, it will portray the life of our community. Establishing a community is a special way of unveiling God’s gifts, hence we wanted to create this magazine, so that through written word and your talent we can develop a spirit of friendship and collaboration.
The title “The Little Way” is closely tied to the patroness of our parish, the Doctor of the Church, St. Theresa of the Child Jesus. Despite her young age she showed us the little way to holiness, in a way that no one before her was able to do. Theresa’s way to holiness, also known as spiritual childhood, does not lead one to God by extraordinary accomplishment, but by acceptance of our own “littleness,” our limitations, and awaiting everything from God. This position assumes constantly admitting to God the truth about oneself, which in turn generates humility, while pleading to God for help with greater determination. Through her life events, Saint Theresa assures us that everyone can reach holiness, especially one who feels weak, vulnerable, and unable to give oneself to God. Her spiritual way teaches us total reliance on God and we will learn this "way” together, through the formation of this magazine.
I am overjoyed that “The Little Way” is compiled and edited by “one of us;” people belonging to our parish and our community who dedicated their time. I am very grateful to every single one of them.
I hope and pray that “The Little Way” is fruitful by drawing us all closer to God. Thank you all for your commitment.
Fr. Ireneusz Pierzchala Pastor
