Dear friends, as I sit in the Chapel at Casa O’Toole, right above where my classes are being held, these words of Blessed Kateri Takakwitha that I have quoted are painted on one of the Stain Glass windows. These are the first words that my eyes gravitated to. What a beautiful desire and focus for our day. She speaks of the desire to know and to do the will of God in order to please Him. Neither one of these is simple but if it is what we want it can be a reality. I know however that in order for these two things to happen we need to do two things. First we need to ask God for this enlightenment and then we need to give God the time to speak to our hearts. It is my desire that my Sabbatical will help me to do a better job of this. I desire to please God and it is my hope that this is your desire as well. I also hope that we all know that doing what pleases God not only makes God happy but it brings many blessings to us as well. Let us work together so that we will indeed do what is most pleasing to God.
God’s continued Peace, Fr. Yvon
