Monsignor’s Message – Fall Back on God’s Plan

Posted on Oct 31, 2017 in Monsignor's Message

This is a message from Msgr. Kieran Harrington, Vicar for Communications for the Diocese of Brooklyn that appears in The Tablet:

This week we set our clocks back an hour. The sun sets in the early afternoon. The leaves fall from the trees. The streets are a bit more quiet and empty. During this time, the Church bids us to reflect on the final things – death, judgment, heaven and hell. For some, these mysteries may seem ominous and threatening. We, who are believers, embrace these realities. The Divine plan is for us to spend eternity with the Almighty God. Yet, we must persevere in putting into effect God’s plan. Judgment is the moment when our lives’ decisions are ratified. Are those decisions for God and His holy plan? Are they for ourselves and the idols we have constructed? We, who are believers, do not fear death because God’s will is that winter will give way to spring and we have sought to put His will into effect in our lives.

May God bless you,
Monsignor Kieran Harrington, V.E.
