Silence during Mass

“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 

“No servant can serve two masters...You cannot serve both God and mammon." The Lord has a great sense of humor, as I discovered again when I read the gospel for this Sunday, the Sunday we are including the annual parish financial report in the bulletin! Even though the stewardship of our financial resources is only one small part of our gospel mission, the Lord also says: “The person who is trustworthy in very small matters is also trustworthy in great ones.” If you look at our bottom line (purposely printed in red ink) you will see that we are in financial difficulties. Our staff is doing their best to keep costs down, but without a significant increase in revenue we will have to consider making cuts. I would ask you to look over the financial report and pray about what we are called as a community to do in our situation. I trust if we serve the Lord, He will help us deal with the mammon properly!

Blessings on our own City of Solvang during Danish Days. May St. Ansgar, the Apostle of Denmark, bless all who enjoy these festivities! God keep you!    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

“It is not enough to say we are Christians. We must live the faith not only with words but with our actions”  - Pope Francis

Pope Francis: Remember the spiritual as much as the corporal works of mercy

@ArchbishopGomez: Friends, we need to practice the corporal and spiritual works of mercy - seeking contact with our Lord through serving others.
