"What if God was one of us?"

The singer/songwriter Joan Osborne scored a hit by singing that question in 1995:

"What if God was one of us? Just a slob like one of us. Just a stranger on on the bus trying to make his way home."

God was and has been one of us since the first Christmas. But in the course of daily life, it is sometimes easy to lose sight of this. At Our Lady of Vilnius, we have had our priests to remind us.

At its beginning, in Father Šeštokas and recently, in Father Eugene, Our Lady of Vilnius has been blessed with worker priests who are also "one of us" in having other occupations before entering the priesthood and while serving as priests.

This living tradition is one of the unique gifts that make this parish so powerful in bringing us closer to God.
