“Thank you for your very warm welcome. I’m delighted to visit Divine Mercy Parish at St. Joseph’s Church! Even more, I thank you for striving to live your faith and to make this a vibrant community faith, worship, service. Thank you for striving to live your God-given vocations, most especially the vocation to marriage and family. Let me also note in passing that my visit nearly coincides with the patronal feast day of your parish, the feast of the great St. Joseph, the spouse of Mary and Jesus’ foster-father. So happy feast day, a day early!
“Being with you this morning also gives me a chance and gives you a chance to express our common gratitude to your pastor, Fr. Ed, for his devoted and loving priestly service. Fr. Ed, you are a wonderful pastor & missionary; with all our hearts we thank you!”
