I love you, my Lord, my strength.

Psalm 18


Today’s scriptures emphasize the fundamental link between love of God and love of our neighbors.

First Reading: Exodus 22:20-26
You shall not oppress an alien, for you yourselves were once aliens in Egypt.

Second Reading: 1 Thessalonians 1:5c-10
You became imitators of the Lord, so that you became a model for all believers.

Gospel: Matthew 22:34-40
You shall love the Lord, your God, with all your heart, and you shall love your neighbor as yourself.

The newly dedicated Cathedral of Christ the Light in Oakland was the venue for the investiture of 26 women, men and members of the clergy into the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulcher, on Sunday, October 5, 2008. The Most Reverend George H. Niederauer, Archbishop of San Francisco, presided over the ceremony. Among those inducted into the Order was Father Michael Padazinski. The fundamental purpose of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulcher is the preservation of the Catholic faith in the Holy Land. The Order provides spiritual, moral and also material support to the Christians still living there.

Secondly, last week, during the annual convention of the Canon Law Society of America in Kansas City, Missouri, Fr. Padazinski was elected to the National Board of Governors for the C.L.S.A.

Our heartfelt congratulations go to Fr. Padazinski, for these great honors!
