Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Parish is a faith-filled community for all cultures and ages dedicated to building the Kingdom of God. We come closer to God by following Jesus Christ through His Word and the Sacraments. Through the Holy Spirit and with the intercession of our Blessed Mother, we provide a sense of belonging to all God's people through prayer, service and the sharing of our gifts for the praise and glory of God.
Clergy's Page Pastor's Corner
All the scriptures for today speak of wisdom - and they do so from many different perspectives.  We are told in the first reading that if we want to attain wisdom and uderstanding, we must be simple.  We must have an uncluttered heart, be a model of God's love to others.
In the second reading, St. Paul speaks of wise living in a world experiencing lots corruption, evil and ignorance.  And instead of being foolish in our broken world, we should seek wisdom.  Wisdom will bring us understanding  and openness to the Spirit of God who can help us through any misunderstandings, challenges and difficulties.
The Gospel gives us the precious message that Jesus is the bread of life.  Here we here the prophetic words of Jesus when he told the ews that He is the Living Bread that came down from Heaven.  Through these words, Jesus was preparing His believers for the institution of the Eucharist which is His special gift to the Church.  This living bread will sustain us and nourish us with its strength on our life's journey.  But ther Jewish crown was hearing only Jesus' literal words and could not understand what they really meant.  They couldn't understand  the spiritual and much deeper reality of Jesus'  words because it required faith to go beyond the surface level.  They were simply cluttered with the baggage of their limited logic.  Fortunatley, Jesus doesn't  back down.   He tells them that partaking of His flesh and blood wil bring them eternal life.  He even mentions a resurrection after death!  Jesus was telling them that He was the bread if kindness, of tenderness, of forgiveness.  He was and will continue to be the bread of love, of loving, and of being loved, the bread of self-sacrifice and self-giving.  Whenever we recieve the Body and Blood we will find the strength to live, courage to continue, and the will to be like Him, to be one with Him.  Jesus was trying to tell them and all of us that He chooses to live with us, His people, and become the daily bread for us.
Jesus promises that those who believe in Him will be fed by the spiritual food which is His own body and blood.  Today, let us ask for the grace from Jesus that our Eucharistic celebrations will always be an experience which helps us to be transformed into a community of love.  We need to become a people reaching out in love to all those in need around us.  We ourselves, as living members of the Body of Christ, must ourselves become lifegiving Bread for others.
