A Message from Father Michael Peltzer
Pastor, St Joan of Arch Parish, Harper County, Kansas

Parents who have children who are inactive Catholics
should never lose hope. Just think of St Monica who prayed thirty three long years for the conversion of her son, St. Augustine.

Because of her long perseverance in this special intention of hers, God rewarded her by not only bringing him back to the faith, but also making him a priest, a doctor of the Church, and finally a great saint himself all because his mother continued praying, even though it took a very long time. Monica really trusted her God, and she knew that He would take care of things in His own quiet and gentle time.

God is indeed a God of many surprises. Trust Him!
