“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
Please pray for our Capuchin Franciscan friars who will be on retreat this week, June 10-14.
Panis angelicus, fit panis hominum. This beautiful hymn tries to capture the amazing reality that Jesus not only came into this world, died and rose again, but also that He continues to be with us in so many ways, above all, in this most Blessed Sacrament. St. Francis said: “See, daily He humbles Himself, as when he came down from heaven into the Virgin Mary’s womb.” Why would Jesus do that? Because God so loves the world, He gives His only Son, the Bread of Life. What have we done to deserve this love? Nothing. How are we called to respond to this love? By giving our whole heart, soul, mind and strength to God, and by loving one another as He loves us.
Remember, our blessed sacrament chapel is open daily; come spend some time with our Lord who gives us Himself. God bless and keep 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.
