Twenty-fifth Sunday in Ordinary Times

Lessons from Korea

Dear sisters and brothers in Christ,

In the liturgical calendar, September 20th is the memorial of the Korean Martyrs, St. Andrew Kim Taegon, the first Korean born priest, St. Paul Chong Hasang and his companions. They were murdered at the beginning of the 19th century because of hatred against the Catholic faith.

Since this year, their memorial falls on a Sunday, the celebration of the 25th Sunday of Ordinary Time takes precedence and, thus, we will not celebrate the Korean martyrs. Yet, that does not mean that we forget them. In fact, Eucharistic prayer III allows for a mention of the saint of the day and I am planning to do that at every Mass that I celebrate this Sunday.

Korea was evangelized by Korean lay persons who encountered the faith, received Baptism, and went back to their homeland to preach the Gospel. Many among them gave witness to their love of Christ and the Church to the point of shedding their own blood. As is well known, not only Catholics but the entire Korean people has suffered a lot during the 20th century. Catholics in North Korea have particularly suffered and continue to suffer enormously on account of their faith.

There are many reasons why I always remember the memorial of the Korean martyrs with great devotion.

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?

Christ yesterday and today;
the Beginning and the end;

All time belongs to Him;

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.”
