Dear Parishioners,

School is out and the question is, what do we do with our children for the next two months? I know that there are some of us who cannot afford the expense of summer camps and hopefully our children will find lots of fun things to do and not get too bored.

On Father’s day it will be my 2nd anniversary as a deacon and yet I still have a lot to learn. I love what I do in my ministry and hope that you will continue to allow me to serve you for many more years to come.

Today’s gospel reminds me of the story of the cookie thief. A woman at the airport waiting to catch her flight bought herself a bag of cookies, settled in a chair in the airport lounge and began to read her book. Suddenly she noticed the man beside her helping himself with cookies from the cookie bag between them. Not wanting to make a scene, she reads on, ate cookies, and watched the clock. As the daring “cookie thief” kept on eating the cookies she got more irritated and said to herself,

“If I wasn’t so nice, I’d blacken his eye!”

With each cookie she took, he took one too. When only one was left, she wondered what he would do. Then with a smile on his face and a nervous laugh, he took the last cookie and broke it in half. He offered her half, and he ate the other. She snatched it from him and thought,

“Oh brother, this guy has some nerve, and he’s also so rude, why, he didn’t even show any gratitude!”

She sighed with relief when her flight was called. She gathered her belongings and headed for the gate, refusing to look at the ungrateful “thief.” She boarded the plane and sank in her seat, then reached in her baggage to get her book, and what she saw made her gasp with surprise. For there, in front of her eyes were, her bag of cookies. Then it dawned on her that the cookies they ate in the lounge was the man’s and not hers, that the man was not a thief but a friend who tried to share, that she was the rude one, the ungrateful one, the thief.

The cookie thief story reminds us, as we see in today’s gospel, that it often happens that the one pointing the accusing finger turns out to be the guilty one, that the complainant sometimes turns out to be the offending party.

God Bless,
Deacon John


Today, June 17th
