From Father Fasching:

As Christians we share in the life of Christ. Through baptism we have become children of God, therefore we have the right to share in Christ’s inheritance. We possess the first fruits of the Holy Ghost. In this pilgrim journey there is a tension between what we already possess and what we yearn for. We are not free from suffering and weakness as we anticipate eternal happiness in heaven.

In saving our soul and spreading the Kingdom of God, Christ expects us to be at least as zealous as we are when it comes to dealing with worldly affairs. God offers His grace, but we must use all our available human resources in cooperation with that grace in order to achieve sanctity. This will inevitably involve strenuous effort and even heroic sacrifice.

So many people dream of earthly honors and strive for riches. When we place the same zeal into the salvation of our souls, there can be nothing that stands in our way.

Sincerely in Christ,

Rev. Jeffery A. Fasching
