Let me introduce myself, I am Father Dairo Diaz, the priest at St. Patrick's Catholic Church at Moody Air Force Base.  We welcome all military affiliated members to join us at Mass.  If you are new to our community, please introduce yourself to me this Sunday.

Our faith community is dedicated to creating an environment of fellowship through worship, outreach and services.  I encourage you to become active in our ministries.  Becoming part of our ministry is a great way to get to know people while becoming an active member of the church.  In addition, service gives you a
creative outlet to living your baptismal commitments, helps the parish in fulfilling its pastoral obligations, and gives us the opportunity to get to know you personally.

"Recognizing the needs of others is a sign of genuine conversion, which only happens when the heart is ready to be changed by Jesus.  Conversion and forgiveness of sins are two aspects of mercy.  How often do we tell ourselves:  ' must change; I cannot continue like this.  On this path, my life will not bear fruit.  It will be a useless life, and I will not be happy.'  Jesus invites us to change our lives.  On this path,, my life will not bear fruit.  It will be a useless life, and I will not be happy.'  Jesus invites us to change our lives.  He, with the Holy Spirit, plants in us the seed of this restlessness in order to change our lives a little bit for the better.  Just open the door, and he will do all the rest.  He does everything.  But open wide the door, so that he can heal us and carry us forward.  Jesus won people over with kindness, with love."
