A savior for the long haul

The church teaches that Jesus was like us in all things but sin. He was capable of feeling the full range of human emotions, from joy to sorrow. The constant resistance and sometimes outright rejection he faced while bringing the Good News to his people must have grieved him deeply. Imagine having wonderful news to share with your own loved ones—and having it fall on deaf ears, or even be met by scorn. That is how Jesus must have felt confronted by rejection. When we think of the suffering of Jesus, we usually focus on his Crucifixion. But he suffered small crucifixions every day as he went about his ministry. Take a moment to thank Jesus for staying the course.

Today’s readings: Revelation 5:1-10; Luke 19:41-44 (500). “As Jesus drew near Jerusalem, he saw the city and wept over it.”

We are a
Catholic Community
located on the
North side of
Lakeland, Florida.

In the words of Pope Benedict XVI who says, "the Holy Spirit rebuilds the bridge of true communication between heaven and earth," we at St. Anthony Catholic Church are here to help each other cross that bridge. We are a missionary church, Catholic in nature, called to be missionaries to the world and one another.

The Second Vatican Council clearly states that people are the church. More so than any building, program, or even teaching, the church witnesses the presence of Christ to the world through its people. Saint Anthony Catholic Church is abundantly blessed in this regard.
