Except for the Lord

A pic from our trip to the U.P. last fall

We sang "Come to the Water" at mass this morning.

The lyrics really hit me, especially the two lines at the end of each verse.

Why should we pay the price? Why should we spend our lives? How can our souls find rest? ...Except for the Lord!

What a comfort that our lives are worthwhile and our souls can find rest because of the Lord.


O let all who thirst
Let them come to the water
And let all who have nothing
Let them come to the Lord
Without money, without price
Why should you pay the price
Except for the Lord?

And let all who seek
Let them come to the water
And let all who have nothing
Let them come to the Lord
Without money, without strife
Why should you spend your life
Except for the Lord?

And let all who toil
Let them come to the water
And let all who are weary
Let them come to the Lord
All who labor without rest
How can your soul find rest
Except for the Lord?

And let all the poor
Let them come to the water
And let the ones who are laden
Let them come to the Lord
Bring the children without might
Easy the load and light
Come to the Lord

Adoption through Jesus Christ

Part of Mike's work for the parish is providing content for a site the parish runs called the Fisherman's Net.  His latest video deals with adoption and how we are adopted sons and daughters of God the Father.
