Welcome to St. Christopher Parish

Dear Family,

Our First Reading this Sunday is from the Book of Exodus. The Israelites are being attacked by Amalek and his army. Moses climbs a hill to oversee the battle which wages for a long time. We read that when Moses’ arms are outstretched, the Israelites do well. But as Moses tires, his arms fall down to his side and Amalek then does well. So, Aaron and Hur each support an arm so that Moses does not tire and the Israelites are ultimately victorious. Now Moses is considered to be a man who foreshadows Jesus. Picture in your mind the image of Moses with arms outstretched. Then picture Jesus with arms outstretched on the Cross. Moses’ arms are supported by Aaron and Hur. Jesus’ arms are held up by nails. Moses and his army win the battle when his image is in the shape of a cross! Jesus wins the ultimate battle against sin and death with His arms outstretched on the Cross! We can always turn our eyes to a crucifix and pray that Jesus will help us in our need as we fight our own battles against sin. The power of Jesus on the Cross is infinite!!! When we study the Scriptures, we will encounter in the Old Testament many events that foreshadow our ultimate salvation in Jesus! Spend some time this week reflecting on Jesus’ victory over sin for our salvation!

Praised Be Jesus Christ…Now and Forever!!!

Fr. Steve
