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 

This saying is trustworthy and deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners.  St. Paul preached this message with confidence because he himself had encountered the grace of God’s forgiveness in Jesus. This is our message to the world, and all we say and do should reflect the mercy and goodness of God and how important Jesus Christ and his Gospel is to us. The friars who founded this mission in 1804 were trying to do just that: share the message of God’s mercy. We thank God for all the people who in these 215 years have prayed in this church of Santa Inés and tried to live the good news despite human weakness and misunderstandings. We are all brothers and sisters. Today once more we try to live as one family.

Please join us for our Founding Day Mass this Tuesday at 7:00 p.m. Thank you for all who are working so hard to make this a prayerful moment in the life of our parish community. May God watch over you all!    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.
