3 Dear Parish Family, Message from the Pastor I used to really enjoy hearing this story about Jesus when I was a kid. I think it spoke to my inner junior high boy self who liked gross things. Jesus spits on his hands and then touches the deaf man and of course, the man is healed! Not only was he deaf, but he had a speech impediment and He was healed immediately by our Lord! What I really enjoyed about it was knowing that Jesus could use gross things to accomplish him mission. It encouraged me as a junior high kid because I knew even if I was gross (and I probably was a lot as a teenager), Jesus could use me as his instrument. And I think this thought carried me to priesthood because I know there is NO WAY I would be able to be worthy of this incredible ministry on my own. I m a priest because the Lord uses me in my brokenness and my sometimes middle school grossness to accomplish his works. He does the same thing with the deaf man in the Gospel today and he does the same thing with you. There are times you might feel gross and unworthy, but God has chosen you as a his child. He can also heal you so that you can hear His words of life and speak his words of love. We are grateful for God s love and his healing presence because all he has to do is touch us and we will be healed. Let us not be afraid for Jesus to heal us because even if we are gross, he can do anything! Fr. T.J.
