First Down with Fr. Eric (December 1, 2019)

Dear Friends,

Even though I preach for a living, I, too, need to be inspired and fed. I have always looked for good speakers that present well thought out ideas, give me some great insights and call me to act upon my faith. There have been many that I have enjoyed listening to. One in particular, years ago, on Sunday morning TV Mass, a Passionist Priest by the name of Fr. Edward Beck gave wonderful homilies.

Later on, I came across him being a Commentator on Cable News about the Catholic faith and religious issues. He has a fantastic way of presenting complicated ideas in simple terms. At our Pastor’s Advisory Meeting, we decided to reach out to Fr. Beck to come to our parish for Advent, and he accepted.

Next Sunday he will preach at all our Masses. You will have another opportunity to hear him on Monday and Tuesday night, December 9 and December 10 from 6:30 – 8:00 pm.

This new Liturgical Year is bringing our parish new challenges and a call to strengthen our prayer and mission. I hope everyone will be as inspired by Fr. Beck as I have been for many years.

Peace in Christ,

Fr. Eric
