“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

Please pray for our Capuchin Franciscan friars who will be on retreat this week, June 10-14.
“The fact that God is a trinity is a truth of faith of such a sort that… this article of faith is the foundation of the entire Christian faith.” This is what St. Bonaventure, an early disciple of St. Francis and contemporary of St. Thomas Aquinas, said about the mystery we focus on today. We can never understand how it is possible that God is at the same time One God and Three Persons. But what an amazing thing, that God has allowed us this glimpse into the depths of His being! By reflecting on the relationship between the three persons of the Trinity, Father, Son and Spirit, we are called to encounter the essence of all being, which is just as St. John says: GOD IS LOVE. At the very center of our existence is the love of God who calls us to become like God, by loving one another as He loves us.
Corpus Christi. Next week we celebrate another central mystery of our faith: the sacrament of the body and blood of Christ! I invite all our parishioners to spend a little extra time before the Lord in our Blessed Sacrament chapel and especially ask as many as possible to join us for our Corpus Christi procession next Sunday at 1:30 p.m. in the garden. May the Lord, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, 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.
