Twenty-sixth Sunday in Ordinary Time
News and Notes:
While personal health issues and continuing safety concerns in light of COVID-19 has kept many prudent faithful from entering our churches, we hope you’ve been watching our virtual Masses. And for those who feel healthy and comfortable, we want to encourage you to join in the celebration of our live Masses each weekend. The surest antidote to the fact of our sinfulness is not to try to forget; it’s to go to Mass and there worship God. As Blessed Columba Marmion, OSB, wrote, “When we are overwhelmed by the remembrance of our sins and seek wherewith to repair our offenses…, we cannot find a more efficacious and reassuring means than the Mass. Why is this? Because the Mass is not only a sacrifice of praise, or a simple remembrance of that of the cross; it is a true sacrifice of propitiation, instituted by Christ.”
Blessings to you in the week ahead!
