Hello! My name is Emma Kloes and I am a college student at UW-Madison.  Although I love my home in Madison, I also loved growing up in Hortonville as a parishioner of Ss. Peter and Paul.  Ss. Peter and Paul has always been very special to me; there is something that this community has that is unlike any other.  Some visiting priests say that it’s our strong voices in communal prayer or our beautiful, loud singing.  I’d have to agree with them, but the uniqueness of our parish is more than our loud voices.  It’s the dedication to service, radiant joy, fire for the Catholic faith, and pure love that I have witnessed in so many of you.  This has taught me the importance and pure goodness of living a life for Christ. The transition to life in college was not an easy one, but Ss. Peter and Paul had fortunately equipped me for living out my faith amidst the secular college culture of Madison.  I want to thank you and give back to our beautiful community here by sharing various reflections each week in our bulletin. I hope to share with you all the beauty of Catholicism along with ways we can live out this faith, striving for holiness and heaven.    Emma~

When we bless ourselves, we make the Sign of the Cross. It’s a sign of our salvation. We do this all the time; several times at mass and many times as we pray.  But do we see the crosses in our life as a blessing? Or do we focus on the suffering that they bring us? There is an intimacy with Jesus that is only possible when we unite ourselves with him through these crosses. He has the ability to die and rise in us, bringing us to the Father in a new way. He has the ability to bring us to our everlasting Father who we have an infinite need for. 

 

God tells us that he wants us and that he loves us. Sometimes we don’t realize our infinite need for his love. Nothing finite in our lives will never be enough; only God is enough. The finite things will never satisfy, yet we often try to fill our lives with worldly desires instead of heavenly desires. 

 

Even though we mess up, however, God is always there when we run back to him, when we run back to this infinite need. We weren’t given a spirit of slavery, but rather a spirit of adoption that cries out “Abba, Father!” Just as God has a natural desire to want and love us, we have a natural desire to want and love him. A relationship with our Lord based in this love is what brings us new hope, new faith, and new life. 

 

Happy Sunday!
