Dear Family of God,
I recently attended the Phoenix Diocese “Celebrate and Defend Life Luncheon.” It was a beautiful event and Bishop Olmsted shared a few thoughts I wanted to pass along.
It can be discouraging to look at our society and see so many people still unwilling to defend the lives of the pre-born, a renewed push for euthanasia with no restrictions and the disintegration of the traditional family. Yet, we are a people of hope and confidence.
We know how this story ends. We know Jesus has the victory over death and sin. There is no need to fear for those who live in Christ.
Many of you may have heard about Fr. Jacques Hamel – the French priest who was beheaded by ISIS in Normandy. He had just finished celebrating Mass at St. Etienne’s. The name is St. Stephen’s in English and St. Stephen was the name of the Catholic Church’s first martyr. Many might see this as a victory for ISIS, but we know better. We know where this priest is today!
Always remember, “Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, and everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this?” (John 11:25-26)
We rejoice as death has no sting and hell has no victory.
In Christ through Mary,
Fr. Jess Ty
