Pastor Raul Granillo: Building Potential

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.” John 3:16-17 (NIV)

My wife and I started a basic fort in the back yard for my oldest son Kyle. It’s nothing more than a PVC frame and a camouflage roof. To look at it, you wouldn’t think much, but when Kyle saw it, his imagination exploded. He saw potential for the greatest fort ever. That vision seems to have consumed him.

IHM’s Fish Fry Fridays Drawing Record Crowds

on March 18, 2017 - 8:02am

Record crowds are gathering in the parish hall at Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church, 3700 Canyon Road, each week for the annual Fish Fry Fridays dinner offered during the Lenten season, according to organizers. This past Friday the crowd was a bit smaller as some diners took advantage of traditional corned beef and cabbage dinners on the menus of area restaurants for St. Patrick's Day.

Deacon O’Hara: Power Of Choice And Free Will

“Why did God have to put that tree in the garden?”

I think this is a great question; a question that is very appropriate to the readings heard on the First Sunday of Lent. The answer is, the tree is there because a choice had to be made. In Chapter four of his first letter, St. John tells us simply that God is love. Our Christian theology explains this statement by telling us that God is a community of three persons; the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

The Father gives all of Himself, in love, to the Son.

Pastor Granillo: Reasonable Disobedience

Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the desert to be tempted by the devil. After fasting 40 days and 40 nights, he was hungry. Matthew 4:1-2 (NIV)

I struggle sometimes with remembering that not everything is black and white. The Christian Church has been guilty of this as well. Its message has sometimes been, “Here is the rule, there is no excuse for disobedience.”

Sometimes we treat people as if every decision in their life is simple, “Choose A, not B, and you will get C”. This, of course, is not always true. Life is complex.
