DEACON TOM’S BLOG
Deacon Tom shares information, news, thoughts about our faith, the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church, and other aspects of our Church.
Ss. Peter and Paul Church has been bringing the good news to Waterloo for over 160 years.
As members of Saints Peter & Paul Parish in Waterloo, Illinois, we will strive to become the bearers of God’s Word to each other and to members of our community through faith development at all age levels.
We commit to be an active, welcoming, and giving parish community that will be open to change as needed for growth in our parish.
We will encourage active participation throughout the parish.
We commit to strive to grow in the love of God and to be the best community we can be.
"As we gather here on the Lord’s Day, we will hear once again how we need to lessen our attachment to our possessions. While we can learn to use them to serve God, we must not allow ourselves become slaves to them.
Jesus says, “You cannot serve both God and mammon.” May our prayer today be for the grace to do what God is asking us to do."

Each of us has been baptized into the mystery of the Holy Spirit. We invoke the Holy Trinity every time we sign ourselves with the cross. So today we pause to acknowledge this mystery and to give thanks for the God of life who has sent the Son and the Holy Spirit for our salvation.[…]
This Sunday we celebrate Trinity Sunday. This feast of the Most Holy Trinity was instituted to honor the Blessed Trinity.
