Gospel                                                             Lk 12:13-21

Someone in the crowd said to Jesus,
“Teacher, tell my brother to share the inheritance with me.”
He replied to him,
“Friend, who appointed me as your judge and arbitrator?”
Then he said to the crowd,
“Take care to guard against all greed,
for though one may be rich,
one’s life does not consist of possessions.”

Then he told them a parable.
“There was a rich man whose land produced a bountiful harvest.
He asked himself, ‘What shall I do,
for I do not have space to store my harvest?’
And he said, ‘This is what I shall do:
I shall tear down my barns and build larger ones.
There I shall store all my grain and other goods
and I shall say to myself, “Now as for you,
you have so many good things stored up for many years,
rest, eat, drink, be merry!”’
But God said to him,
‘You fool, this night your life will be demanded of you;
and the things you have prepared, to whom will they belong?’
Thus will it be for all who store up treasure for themselves
but are not rich in what matters to God.”

Mission Statement

 
Mary's Garden Spring  Being the visible body of Christ in the territory assigned to St. Francis de Sales  Parish and conscious of our founding as a congregation in 1722, we the community of  St. Francis de Sales, state that we come to joyously worship our Lord and Savior  Jesus Christ and to strive for full justice in our personal and public affairs, to  reverence and care for the earth and its bounty, to bring glad tidings to the poor and  the oppressed, to heal the many wounds that abound in every life and to live our lives  in such a way that all who see us will truly know that God indeed exists.  We invite all  persons to come and taste how sweet the Lord is!

"Do not look forward to the changes and chances of this life with fear; rather, look upon them with strong hope that, as they arise, God, whose child you are, will deliver you from them."
