“The observance of the moments of silence envisioned by the liturgy is of great importance.” Papal instruction about the liturgy. What we say at Mass is important, but more important is listening to what God says. Silence during the mass is our invitation to listen to what the Lord is saying to us in this most wonderful sacrament. Fr. Bobby
"Be still and know that I am God.” Psalm 46:10
For this command that I enjoin on you today is not too mysterious and remote for you...No, it is something very near to you, already in your mouths and in your hearts; you have only to carry it out." It’s always good to remember that our Christian faith is not something outlandish. We believe Jesus came to teach how to be human, to become what God has made us to be. His commandment of love is planted deep within us. The compassion of the Samaritan should not be so strange, yet we need constant reminders of the truth of our faith, as well as constant encouragement to live out our divine mandate. And that is why Jesus gives us the Eucharist and calls us together as His body. Please remember to share this good news with your friends and neighbors.
This week we welcome Fr. César Lozano from our Capuchin Custody in northern Mexico. May the Lord bless you always! Fr. Bobby
"Jesus keeps knocking on our doors, the doors of our lives. He doesn't do this by magic, with special effects, with flashing lights and fireworks. Jesus keeps knocking on our door in the faces of our brothers and sisters, in the faces of our neighbors, in the faces of those at our side." Pope Francis
@ArchbishopGomez: Friends, we need to practice the corporal and spiritual works of mercy - seeking contact with our Lord through serving others.
