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 

Jesus tells us, “whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and the one who humbles himself will be exalted." This coming week we celebrate the feast of All Saints. In the saints we have so many examples of those who accepted and lived Jesus’ teaching and example of humility. St. Francis gives us a perfect definition of humility: “What a person is before God, that is what that person is, no more (and no less).” We all have our gifts, and we all have our faults. The good news is that God’s love is not something we earn, but something we are called to accept and share. And because we all have our faults, we need to pray for one another, in this life and beyond. On All Souls’ Day we pray in a special way for our departed brothers and sisters. Please join us for a special mass in our cemetery on November 2 at 10:00 a.m.

Thank you to all who helped make our celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Sacred Hearts Sisters presence such a wonderful moment of prayer and community. We pray the Sisters will be with us many, many more years.

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.
