All are welcome.
In today’s first reading, Luke tells us about another speech Peter made to the Jewish crowds teaching them about Jesus’ Death and Resurrection. As he was speaking, the Jewish authorities arrested Peter, and John also, to interrogate them about the former healing of the man with the crippled feet.
Peter, without fear or hesitation from the anointing of the Holy Spirit, boldly told the authorities that the man was healed in Jesus’ name. He then continued to remind them that they, the leaders of the Jews, were the ones who tortured, crucified, and denied Jesus as their Messiah. To make his point about their selective ignorance that Jesus was/is the Messiah, Peter quotes an Old Testament prophecy. Psalm 118:22 , written over 1000 years prior to their current time says; “The stone the builders rejected has become the Cornerstone”! As religious leaders they should have known and acknowledged the hundreds of prophecies from their Torah about Jesus’ coming. Peter explained that spiritual as well as physical healing can be accomplished through Jesus, but they still did not listen. At the heart of this reading is the fact we need to read and know the Scriptures, especially that JESUS said HE is the ONLY way to eternal salvation and everlasting life. All we have to do is accept and receive the gift of salvation for which Jesus died. That acceptance and the gifts of the Holy Spirit will help us stand firm in our convictions when we are called on to be witnesses to our faith!

Protecting God's Gifts
April Is Child Abuse Prevention Month Reporting Suspected Abuse Takes Courage
When any adult in the faith community has reason to suspect that a child, young person, or vulnerable adult is being or has been abused, he or she has a moral (and often a legal) responsibility to report those suspicions to civil authorities. Reporting suspected abuse takes courage.
Adults who take a stand and make the call are often responsible for saving a child or vulnerable adult from terrible torment.
To report known or suspected abuse, call the civil authorities or contact Jacqueline Bressett, Director Safe Environment and Victim Assistance at 315-470-1465 for assistance.
