In Defense of Mother Church

Stress can result from feeling powerless in difficulties, yet change isn’t always up to us. Knowing when to step back and surrender can actually bring peace.. When faced with what we cannot change, try these tips for increasing feelings of serenity and peace.

“My peace I give you” (John 14:27).
Remember, Jesus does not want us to be troubled by worldly concerns. When you feel yourself starting to worry or stew about a difficult situation (or person), act out your belief that your prayer for resolution will be answered. Substitute positive, cheerful thoughts for negative ones. God is in control. “Rejoice in the Lord always. I shall say it again: Rejoice!” (Philippians 4:4).

“...Be of good cheer, I have overcome the world” (John 16:33).
While we hope to be strong witnesses of our faith, not everyone will see us that way. Sometimes sharp words or critical comments from others can disturb our peace. Feedback can be helpful, but if anyone gets to you for more than a day or two consult a fellow Christian whom you trust for a better perspective.

“I can do all things in Him who strengthens me” (Philippians 4:13).
Take every opportunity to appreciate your place in God’s kingdom. Relish the tasks you have been given, for a job well done brings satisfaction and increased contentment.

“In the early afternoon of Good Friday, “there was darkness over the whole land … while the sun’s light failed; and the curtain of the temple was torn in two” (Luke 23:44, 45).  This is the symbol of a great cosmic disturbance and a massive conflict between the forces of good and the forces of evil, between life and death. Today we too find ourselves in the midst of a dramatic conflict between the “culture of death” and the “culture of life”. But the glory of the Cross is not overcome by this darkness; rather, it shines forth ever more radiantly and brightly, and is revealed as the center, meaning and goal of all history and of every human life.” Pope John Paul II’s Evangelium Vitae (GOSPEL OF LIFE)

We, at St. Helena Catholic Church, are concerned with educating, directing, and sustaining all who visit. 

In particular those who draw near to the teachings and traditions of Holy Mother Church. 

We strive to achieve this by utilizing the Cardinal Virtues of Justice, Prudence, Temperance and Fortitude.
