  • Physician-Assisted Suicide

    California Crosses an Unwelcomed Threshold with Legalization of Physician-Assisted Suicide The California Catholic Conference of Bishops, comprised of Bishops from the two archdioceses and 10 dioceses of California, issued the following statement on the legalization of physician-assisted suicide on June 9, 2016: Every human being possesses inherent dignity, which deserves our respect. Each of us should feel loved, worthy and cared for at every moment of our lives, especially when our earthly journey is nearing its end. What some mistakenly consider a newfound “freedom,” will inevitably become a duty for others. By allowing doctors to prescribe a lethal dose of drugs to their patients, California is embarking on a dangerous course. This new law will place the disabled, the elderly and other vulnerable people at risk for abuse … Continue reading

  • A Letter From Fr. Thanh-Tai

    Dear Beloved Parishioners, Well, it’s not easy to write a good-bye letter to a community and its beautiful people whom I consider to be my “first love.” As it is my first priestly assignment to serve here at St. Bonaventure, your love, prayers and support have shown me how to become a better priest.

Father's Corner

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, In this Sunday’s Gospel Jesus is praying and his disciples ask him to teach them to pray. (Luke 11:1-13) He teaches them the “Our Father.” This version is a little different from the one we usually pray which comes from the Gospel according to Matthew, that is, “Our Father, who art in heaven.” (Matthew 6:9-13) Let’s look at Luke’s version: Father, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come. Give us each day our daily bread and forgive us our sins for we forgive everyone in debt to us, and do not subject us to the final test. Our starting point in prayer is to acknowledge that God’s name is holy. We must show respect and reverence as we address Almighty God. Remember … Continue reading
