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 

Though I am afflicted and poor, yet the LORD thinks of me. You are my help and my deliverer. These are the words of the psalmist, a good reminder to us of where our ultimate help comes from: the good God who made us. As we listen to the words of Fr. Santiago we ask God to help us to be evangelists here in our own valley. The world needs to hear not about us, but about the God who saves and redeems each one of us. May that same God protect us always!

God bless and 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.
