From the Catechism of the Catholic Church:

On Contemplative Prayer: Contemplation is a gaze of faith, fixed on Jesus. “I look at him and he looks at me”: this is what a certain peasant of Ars in the time of his holy curé used to say while praying before the tabernacle. This focus on Jesus is a renunciation of self. His gaze purifies our heart; the light of the countenance of Jesus illumines the eyes of our heart and teaches us to see everything in the light of his truth and his compassion for all men. Contemplation also turns its gaze on the mysteries of the life of Christ. Thus it learns the “interior knowledge of our Lord,” the more to love him and follow him.

Featured Retreat: Liturgy of the Hours Retreat, 11/2-4

This Week: 28th Week in Ordinary Time

We are the Roman Catholic Faith Community of St. Philomena, called to live the Gospel of Jesus Christ through our celebrating and praying together, through our support of the faith development of each member and through our compassionate service and care for one another and the world. We do this because of our commitment to our faith, our hope in the reign of God and our love of God and neighbor.

40 Days for Life

The Forty Days “March for Life” is now underway in Federal Way on Tuesdays in the month of October from 9am until 3pm. A special thanks to those who joined us this past Tuesday and we look forward to having more participate on the 13th, 20th, and 27th of October in front of the Federal Way Planned Parenthood Office located on S. 348th just west of Pacific Hwy South. We pray, sing and support each other in praying to end abortion by offering a visible sign for others that life has value from conception to natural death. PLEASE come join us.

Shalom, Deacon Jerry
