A plum once said, just because a bananalover came by, I converted myself into a banana. Unfortunately, his taste changed after
a few months and so I became an orange.
When he said I was bitter I became an apple, but he went in search of grapes. Yielding to the opinions of so many people, I
have changed so many times that I no more
know who I am. How I wish I had remained
a plum and waited for a plum lover.
Just because a group of people do not accept you as you are, there is no necessity
for you to strip yourself of your originality.
You need to think good of yourself, for the
world takes you at your own estimate.
Never step down in order to gain recognition. Never let go of your true self to win a
relationship. In the long run, you will regret
that you traded your greatest glory - your
uniqueness, for momentary validation.
Even Jesus was not accepted by many people. The group that does not accept you the
way you are, is not your world. There is a
world for each one of you, where you shall
reign as king / queen by just being yourself.
Find that fact, that world will find
What water can do, gasoline cannot and
what copper can, gold cannot. The fragility
of the ant enables it to move and the rigidity
of the tree enables it to stay rooted. Everything and everybody has been designed
with a proportion of uniqueness to serve a
purpose that we can fulfill only by being our
unique self. You as you alone can serve
your purpose and I as I alone can serve my
purpose. You are here to be you... just you.
There was a time when a Christ was required and he was sent;
a time when a Mary was
required and she was
sent; There came a time
when you were required
on this planet and
hence you were sent.
Let us be the best we
can be. Don't miss yourself and let the world
not miss you.
I exhort you to speak little and to pray very much.
St. Gaspar del Bufalo
For us, Christ is everything. We begin in each day in his presence. We
are his people, from many walks of life, and from many nations and languages. We adore the Lord, address him with the psalms of our ancestors and enter the sacred Liturgy, the source and summit in our life in
Christ. Through our Catechetical programs we pass on the faith both to
adults and children, training in holiness which calls us to a Holy life distinguished above all in the art of prayer. Rising from prayer we minister
to the needs of those who ask our help, with food and other assistance.
We are the people of St. Edward Catholic Church in Newark, California. Christ is everything. If you have a wound to heal, he is the doctor;
if you are in need of help, he is strength; if you fear death, he is life; if
you desire Heaven, he is the way; if you are in the darkness, he is light.
Blessed are they who hope in him!

A Must Read from
Pope Francis
Papal Encyclical? It sounds intimidating,
and maybe just a little, well, boring? To be
sure, they can be “challenging” to read;
especially this one at 200 pages! But that
does not mean that we should not pay
attention to what they have to offer. In
actuality, they really are simply circular
letters from the Pope, typically addressed
to the Bishops of the Universal Church
and, in the case of the latest encyclical,
Laudato Si, (Praise be to You), the entire
Our bishop, Bishop Michael Barber, SJ,
has provided us with some short quotes
from the encyclical; his hope is that this will
help and encourage us to read the document.
Each week, we hope to share with you
some of the short quotes from this document provided by our bishop.
The Encyclical can be found at:
