Dear Friends of LAMP:
Those of you who read LAMP’s last Newsletter carefully (Fall & Winter–2018-19), will recall that before she went to her Eternal Life, Lyn had recommended the theme of that Newsletter be: “Giving Thanks to Our Blessed Mother.” Quite unexpectedly, in her passing Lyn has also made fairly clear what the theme of this Newsletter should be. We were overwhelmed by the countless stories of how people had experienced love through Lyn, how that love had affected, and sometimes changed their lives.
That is what LAMP Catholic Ministries is all about. Our mission is to witness to God’s Love to those who are disenfranchised, on the edge, alone, suffering, broken, fearful, poor. Basically, we are all put on this earth to learn how to love! Human beings were created to love. We weren’t created to find our happiness, our “fulfillment”, by putting our “self” first. We are certainly “tempted” to do that, however. Love is the most powerful force in creation. When we decide, make the choice, ask God’s help, to love in a very difficult situation, things change. We hope you will find it in this Newsletter, and be encouraged to strengthen it in your life and relationships.
Respectfully one with you in His service,
