Eighteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Divine love. Human response.

Dear sisters and brothers in Christ,

The readings for this Sunday speak of the presence of God in our midst, his unconditional, free, passionate love for us. The challenges of the present time are an opportunity to rediscover the love and presence of God in our midst.

It has been five years since the publication of Pope Francis’ encyclical Laudato si on the care of our common home. I share a fragment that includes an thorough assessment of our existential situation. The urgent call to conversion is even more pressing in light of the pandemic.

“People no longer seem to believe in a happy future; they no longer have blind trust in a better tomorrow based on the present state of the world and our technical abilities. There is a growing awareness that scientific and technological progress cannot be equated with the progress of humanity and history, a growing sense that the way to a better future lies elsewhere.

Guidelines for visiting the sick in their homes under quarantine to distribute Holy Communion

Persons quarantined in their homes under the threat of the coronavirus may request a visit from the priest, deacon or lay Extraordinary Minister of the Eucharist.

  • A phone call to the patient to learn the circumstances of the quarantine:  How long has the patient been quarantined? What is the patient’s current status?  Has the patient been tested and diagnosed with COVID-19? Are other family members present to assist in the visit? Is the patient using a mask to reduce transmission?

ABCD: Changing people’s lives for the better

People featured in 2020 campaign video were helped by ABCD, now continue to help others.

Christ yesterday and today;
the Beginning and the end;
the Alpha;
and the Omega.
All time belongs to Him;
and all the ages.
To Him be glory and power
through every age for ever. Amen

Pope Francis composes a prayer to Our Lady, Health of the Sick, to implore her protection during the Covid-19 coronavirus epidemic.

“O Mary, you shine continuously along our journey as a sign of salvation and hope.
“We entrust ourselves to you, Health of the Sick, who at the Cross were near to the pain of Jesus, keeping your faith firm.
“You, Salvation of the Roman people, know what we need, and we trust that you will provide for those needs so that, as at Cana of Galilee, joy and celebration may return after this moment of trial.
“Help us, Mother of Divine Love, to conform ourselves to the will of the Father and to do what Jesus tells us, He who took our sufferings upon Himself, and took up our sorrows to bring us, through the Cross, to the joy of the Resurrection. Amen.
“We seek refuge under your protection, O Holy Mother of God. Do not despise our pleas – we who are put to the test – and deliver us from every danger, O glorious and blessed Virgin.”
