My Dear Parishioners,
On Tuesday of
this week we will celebrate the Feast of the Assumption
of Mary, the oldest feast day of Our Lady when she
was taken up, body and soul, into heaven.
Her actions provide
for us a role model of someone who responded totally
to God’s call.
What happens to
Mary is what God wants for all of us:
We, too, are
called to join Mary in her hymn of praise for
the blessings of God.
We, too, are
destined to enter into eternal life.
We, too, rejoice
with Elizabeth and Mary in the coming of new life.
We, too, proclaim
the greatness of a God who enters into the human
and who invites us to move beyond war and violence
to peace and reconciliation.
We are reminded
that Mary, who was pregnant herself, journeyed to
be with her cousin in her pregnancy. She was able
to look beyond her own small perspective.
Mary praises a
God who raises up the lowly; a God who focuses on
mercy and compassion and, thus, invites us to the
values of concern for the poor, solidarity with
all people and a preference for the ways of nonviolence,
forgiveness and reconciliation.
shows us that we must not drift away from God, but
we must ensure that He is present in our lives.

in Pacific Palisades
has experienced an increase in its home-less population
over the past several years. In October of 2014 a
group of local people formed the
Pacific Palisades Task Force on Homelessness.
This Task Force is made up of community volunteers
committed to compassionately addressing the serious
issues associated with the homeless. They have decided
to reach out to a group of experts that have experience
in empowering homeless people to rebuild thei r lives.
This group is the OPCC and our local task force is
hoping to work with them in trying to respond to this
challenge in our community.
We here at Corpus
Christ are have committed a fund to support the task
here to donate to the Homeless Outreach
