Dear St. Martin’s Parishioners,

This Sunday we celebrate the greatest and most sublime truth of our faith, the Holy Trinity. God is one in three Persons. We are baptized into the Holy Trinity, “in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.” Through baptism, we become a dwelling place of the Holy Trinity. Our souls become in a certain way heaven. Jesus says, “the Kingdom of heaven is within you” (Lk. 17:21). As marvelous, fascinating and beautiful the created world around us is, it does not compare with the baptized person’s soul. At the very core of that person’s soul is God! As we enter into these summer months, some of us will go on vacation and see the beauty of nature. Hopefully all of us will experience some degree of rest during these months. Do not forget, though, that these quieter months allow us to enter more deeply into the depths of our soul in prayer. There, in utter silence and awe-filled mystery, dwells the Holy Trinity.

Next Sunday, June 19, we celebrate another great truth of our faith, Corpus Christi. Jesus’ body, blood, soul and divinity are given to us in the Eucharist so we may remain in Him and He in us. I invite you to join us for our Corpus Christi procession at 10:00am on June 19, beginning from the main entrance of the church (the entrance closest to Rt. 355). We will process across 355 to Fr. Meyer Field, where five beautifully decorated altars will allow us to spend some moments of prayer before our Eucharistic Lord. After the procession concludes, light refreshments will be served at the Sisters’ convent. For those attending the 10:30am Spanish Mass on June 19, please park on Fr. Meyer Field or any adjacent parking lot outside of the Church, but please do not park in the main parking lot, as it will be full.

A big THANK YOU to all of our parish groups that were so generous in providing food, drinks and desserts for our parish picnic on Pentecost Sunday! The Field Mass was beautiful and the picnic was the most wildly enjoyable parish event I’ve had the pleasure of attending as a priest. The Mass and picnic were an example of St. Martin’s at our finest: faith, fun and fabulous food.

Yours in Christ,

Fr. Dave
