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 

"It was from Heaven that I received these…from him I hope to receive them again,” the young man in the first reading today says this when threatened with torture and loss of his life on earth. We might remember the saying: “Nothing lasts forever.” This isn’t quite true: the love of God is everlasting. We should use all the things of this earth to help us to grow in that love. Possessions can either separate us from one another or help us to grow in love. We ask Jesus today to help us choose the path of love, living with generous hearts and building up one another.

During this month we remember all our faithful departed. One of our dear brothers in our parish was Joe Airey, who worked hard to help others. Each year the Men’s Club (of which he was a founding member) has a special aebleskiver breakfast to raise funds for a scholarship for our religious education program named in Joe’s honor. The breakfast this year is on November 17, and I hope you will be able to join us in honoring Joe and all those who have gone before us in our parish community.

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

“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.
