A Rule of Life08-13-2017Fr. Don Kline, V.F.
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
St. Joan of Arc is blessed to have a variety of speakers and missionaries visit our parish throughout the year. During our last parish mission, Fr. Zachary spoke so beautifully about five important “rules” that can be a part of our lives every day of our life. I wanted to offer them to you once again in case you were not able to make the mission this year.
The first rule begins when we rise from bed. First thing in the morning say: "This is the first and greatest of all the commandments, ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and all your soul, and with your whole mind, and with all your strength’ and the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’
Next, say the morning offering: "O Jesus, in union with your Most Precious Blood, poured out on the cross and offered in every Mass, I offer you today my prayers, works, joys, sorrows, and sufferings for the praise of Your Holy Name and all the desires of Your Sacred Heart; in reparation for sin, for the conversion, of sinners, the union of all Christians and our final union with You in heaven."READ MORE

There are many reasons! Most importantly is to visit and spend time with Our Lord Jesus Christ who is ever present in the Holy Eucharist (also called the Blessed Sacrament).
Are you a baptized and confirmed Christian who loves Jesus and his Church? Are you interested in participating in the Church’s mission of evangelization – the very mission every Christian receives in their baptism? Are you open to new relationships and being a witness of faith for others?
