Father Josaphat consecrates the Eucharist at St. Teresa Church

On the evening of that first day of the week,
when the doors were locked, where
the disciples were,for fear of the Jews,
Jesus came and stood in their midst
and said to them, “Peace be with you.”
When he had said this, he showed them his hands and his side.
The disciples rejoiced when they saw the Lord.
Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you.
As the Father has sent me, so I send you.”
And when he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them,
“Receive the Holy Spirit.
Whose sins you forgive are forgiven them,
and whose sins you retain are retained.”
John 20:19-23

Hey, Tim!
In the beautiful mural behind the alter, what does the picture on the left depict? It looks like a human sacrifice. Am I right? Do you know the story behind this? We miss you here in the USA!!!!

The mural behind the altar depicts an image of the Martyrs of Uganda. They were persecuted by the Kings of Uganda (1882-1885) and many were burned alive. They are witnesses to faith, hope, and love across the continent of Africa as well as the whole world. So, I guess you were right. I will tell the whole story later. It's good to hear from you! I miss you too!

Salama! (Peace!)
