It was so good to meet on Zoom with today’s SOL. Thanks to all who joined us
today . Below is my refection as we prepare to enter into the holiest week of
our church year!!
De Colores, Deacon Doug

The Spirit teaches us many things. The Spirit teaches us not to fear, even in the midst of serious illness. The Spirit rather shows us how to navigate through crises, even changing our routines, so as to enter more deeply into prayer, prayer for the good of all; prayer for the salvation of all.

This evening, the Church will begin the celebration of Holy Week. It will be celebrated very differently than previous Holy Weeks. We shall offer the Mass of Palm Sunday of the Passion of the Lord, not publicly but privately, though live-streamed to our faithful so that they might assist. We shall offer the Liturgies of the Holy Triduum privately, adapted to the circumstances of celebration during a pandemic; remembering in these Masses and prayers all those who long to be present. And then we shall celebrate Easter.

As we enter into this holiest of weeks, let us never forget that the Lord is with us, and that He awakens within us Easter Faith. The blessed reassurance that, even in the midst of isolation and the loss of so many things, is that Proclamation that saves us – He is Risen! May “many come to believe in Him”. (Jn 10:42)

Join us in prayer!
We encourage you to join us as we recite the Holy Rosary every night at 8PM!
