St. Joseph Church frontThe Lord is king and there is no other. We are to render to God, therefore, fitting praise and service, as is God’s due. God’s word to us, in turn, is a matter of power and strength, to be lived with conviction of heart.

Greetings to you all! There is only one God and that is the LORD! He is a great God. He knows everything there is to know about you, everybody, and me yet huge parts of Him remain a mystery to us. If we understood him completely what kind of God would that be? He wouldn't be the awesome God that He is! God would become ordinary. St. Augustine of Canterbury once said, “If a person could conceive in their mind the totality of God, then that was not God.” We should love that God is so amazing! And that He gives us the faith we need to believe and go out and spread His word even though we don't know everything about Him.. Read Fr. Gerth's message in its entirety in this week's bulletin.
