We have been very privileged at Holy Trinity Parish Jefferson City TN to have Father Wade Menezes, CPM of the Fathers of Mercy as the preacher for our Parish mission this week. Perhaps you’ve seen Father Wade celebrating Masses on EWTN, or heard his weekly Open Line on EWTN radio. Father Wade preaches missions and leads retreats all over the country, but this week we have been privileged to have him with us for a four-day mission. His final talk served as the homily for our closing Mass of the mission, for which Father Wade was the chief celebrant and Father W Patrick Resen concelebrated and Deacon Jim Prosak and Deacon David were the assisting deacons.
Father Wade’s theme this week was “Work Out Your Own Salvation” (Philippians 2:12), and his homily was on “Living A Sacramental Life.” We really needed this mission, we needed what Father Wade brought to us, and believe the Holy Spirit sent him.
Father Wade happened to share with Father Patrick and Deacon David that he especially enjoyed giving missions in small rural parishes like ours. We enjoyed having him. Please read and enjoy his videos that can be ordered through Fathers of Mercy.
