Palm Sunday of the Passion of the Lord

On Palm Sunday we will celebrate Masses according to the regular schedule. However, since there will be no people present, there will not be a solemn entrance and blessing of the palms at the beginning of Mass as we usually do. This year, we will use the third option in the Missal, the simple entrance, according to the instructions of the Holy See during the emergency. Additionally, we will have a Liturgy of the Word on Saturday, April 4 at 4 PM to bless the Palms. This celebration will be streamed live on the Internet as will all scheduled Masses.

To comply with the City of Miami Beach order to stay at home, blessed palms will be mailed to registered parishioners. If you do not receive them by mail, you will be able to pick them up when the situation normalizes. We kindly ask you not to come to the parish to get palms these days.

Moment of prayer and “Urbi et Orbi” Blessing presided over by Pope Francis

Fifth Sunday of Lent

His Beloved friends

Dear sisters and brothers in Christ,

“Lord, the one whom you love is sick.” That is the message sent to Jesus by the sisters of Lazarus who is gravely ill. They are asking Him to come visit His friend.

We are also his friends, for so he calls us in John 15. In these times of pandemic, we too turn to Christ and say to him: those whom you love are sick. We ask Him to be present in our midst to heal us, to free us from this threat that has sown the seeds of suffering and death. Pain and suffering are not limited to the disease caused by the menacing virus, but also by the effects of the pandemic on our daily lives: uncertainty, financial insecurity and employment instability.

This predicament in which we find ourselves in makes manifest the fragility of our human condition and the vulnerability of our hyper-technical society. It reminds us that regardless of any technological resources or out net assets, when it comes to the things that really matter, we are indigent. We live in abject poverty. This realization may generate fear, anxiety and selfishness.

St. Patrick Catholic Church
Live broadcast from 8:00 AM to 8:00 PM.

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.”

Eucharist fast
Spiritual Communion due to quarantine

During this time of “Eucharistic fast” due to the pandemic, we are encouraged to perform acts of Spiritual Communion such as the one below.

My Jesus,
I believe that You
are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love You above all things,
and I desire to receive You into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment
receive You sacramentally,
come at least spiritually into my heart.
I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You.
Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.

Archdiocese of Miami4
Trust in the power of prayer; COVID-19

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

The coronavirus pandemic has shaken our world – and our lives.  Like in the aftermath of 9/11, we feel like the world has changed; but we don’t know yet what the “new normal” will be.  But as a people of faith, we trust in the power of prayer and in the providence of our loving God; as a people of hope, we know that God will never abandon us; as a people of charity, despite our own fears and anxieties, we stand in solidarity with all our brothers and sisters who are infected or affected by this pandemic.

March 13. Note from Archbishop concerning Coronavirus and parish activities

Our parishes will celebrate the Lord’s Day this weekend and during the week for those who do wish to participate in the Eucharistic celebration, the source and summit of our Christian life.  We pray that we will be able to continue to do so; but we will be guided by prudence and the best counsel of our civil authorities and medical professionals.  If circumstances dictate in coming days that Masses be suspended the Archdiocese will make a timely announcement to that effect.

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?

Therefore, if you live within our boundaries you are by the law of the Church a parishioner at St. Patrick.
