Stamford, Connecticut Have you or someone you love received a serious diagnosis? Are you a caregiver for a loved one dealing with a serious illness? The challenges of these situations can become overwhelming, the anxieties and pressures a heavy burden to bear. Father Thomas Lynch and co-author Barbara Mariconda have spent the last 7 years addressing these issues in their soon-to-be released critically acclaimed book: After the Diagnosis...A Guide for Living. Fr. Tom and Barbara share with you the practical strategies and insights that can transform this phase of life that all of us will eventually face. Join them at their Book Launch, Signing and Q & A Session at the St. James Parish Hall, Sunday April 29th from 1:00-4:00. For more information go to: “I highly recommend this book for anyone who has received a diagnosis of serious illness and wishes to seek healing and hope. I also commend it to anyone who desires to learn how to live life fully, one day at a time.”

LIVE THE LITURGY There is something comforting about knowing that we are in someone's care. Children can feel this most easily when surrounded by the embrace of a mother or father. All is well. Jesus is the Good Shepherd. We don't have to figure out all of the complexities of life. All we need to do is allow Jesus to be the true shepherd of our lives: to point us in the right direction, lead us to the best pasture, and keep us safe from harm. So many things in the world can hurt us, and we can quickly find that we are on the road to despair. Keeping focused on Jesus, remaining close to him, allows us to develop the gifts and talents God has given us and discover the key to true happiness. Jesus welcomes me with all of my doubts and fears, limitations and sins.
