Prayers for Those Who Serve
Do you have a loved one who is serving in the military? Parishioners are invited to provide a 5x7 photograph for the altar of the Blessed Virgin Mary. The photograph of your loved one will allow others to see the face of the person who is serving on their behalf as we pray for their well-being and safe return. Please contact the Rectory Office for more details.

Question: Why are we in a valley of tears?
Answer: The gift of freedom, given to the first man and woman, was meant to draw them closer to God, to each other, and to their destiny. God asked them—as he asks us - to recognize their human limits and to trust in him. In the temptation in the Garden of Eden, they abused their freedom, failed to trust God, and disobeyed his command. They lost paradise and its gifts. And death became part of the human experience. This original sin opened the door for all the atrocities of mankind ie; illness, bitterness, death and suffering of any kind. The phrase “vale of tears” (Latin valle lacrimarum) is a Christian phrase referring to the tribulations of life that Christian doctrine says are left behind only when one leaves the world and enters heaven. The term "valley of tears" is also used sometimes. The origin of the phrase is uncertain, but it was perhaps popularized by the hymn "Salve Regina,” which at the end of the first stanza mentions "mourning and weeping in this valley of tears".
