Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
      “Go, sell what you have and give to the poor.  Then come, follow me.”  These words of Jesus are a clarion call to examine our lives.  Are we following Jesus, or are we so attached to our material possessions, comforts, and relationships that following Him is difficult, or even impossible?  Do we walk away sad, as the rich young man does in the Gospel? 
     We are called in a special way by this Gospel passage to make Jesus Christ the center of our lives.  Can we simplify our lives?  Can we ask, “Do I really need that new toy/gadget/article of clothing?” “Am I more concerned with money, power, position, influence than I am with the needs of my fellow man?” “Is following Jesus my first priority?” 
     Several months ago, I spoke of the importance of placing Christ at the center of our lives - and I’m so grateful to see how He is the center of so many hearts here at St. Pius X. In a symbolic way, I expressed my desire to place Christ at the center of our worship by moving the Tabernacle to the center of the sanctuary, where the presider’s chair is currently located.  After making inquiries with the Diocesan Sacred Arts Commission, I am happy to report that we have been given permission to place the Tabernacle, and thus our Lord, in the center of the sanctuary as a visible reminder that Christ is the center and heart of this family of faith. We will move the Tabernacle in time for Bishop Caggiano’s visit to the parish on November 1.  Two statues, one of the Blessed Virgin Mary, and one of St. Joseph, will arrive later in November and be installed in the two side niches on either side of the sanctuary.  More news on that to come later.  For now, it is my prayer that by placing the Eucharist fully at the center of our church will help us to make a more profound welcome to Jesus in our hearts.
