“Honor the Lord with your wealth, with the first fruits of your produce.” (Prov 3:9)

From the Desk of Fr. Ricardo Implied in today’s gospel (John 9:1-41) is the elemen-tary story of the struggle between light and dark-ness. We witness a victory of light. The man who was blind from birth sees for the first time. With his new sight, he is a new creation. We see the contrast between God’s vision and the viewpoint of the world. In this sto-ry almost every person is blind. They are in darkness. The opening of the story begins with a question, a ques-tion of blame. How familiar we all are with the rush to blame. In these days of a major health crisis, we have heard people hurl blame at one another continuous-ly. People argue in the darkness of the unknown. In our passage from John, we see the same process. The blind-man and his parents are filled with fear because they have been labeled as secret sinners and given the burden of guilt to carry. The Pharisees speak for their society: For our part, we know that this man is a sinner. We are all sinners, through and through – since we were born. The Good News is that we do not have to bear the burden of our guilt. We don’t have to live our lives allowing the depths of past failures to fester with murky secrets. We have the wonderful gift of the Sacra-ment of Reconciliation. The more we experience this encounter, the more we see ourselves as God sees us. Let us take advantage of this sight-restoring gift.

From the Office of the Bishop

Act of Spiritual Communion:

My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the most Blessed Sacrament. I love You above all things and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot now receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there, and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.

Health and safety measures for pastoral life in the Diocese of Paterson

Effective immediately By Mandate of the Bishop

As the cases of coronavirus increase exponentially, it is a moral imperative for all people to do what is humanly possible to prevent the spread of the illness. Large gatherings of people have rap-idly become a grave health risk. Therefore, I am making the following provisions for the Diocese of Paterson effective immediately.

Suspension of Public Masses

All public Masses are hereby suspended in the Diocese of Paterson until further notice. Since the Eucharist is the source and summit of the Christian life, all priests of the Diocese of Pater-son must celebrate Mass privately for the good of all of the Christian faithful entrusted to their care and for all people during this critical time. Priests should celebrate this private Mass even if another priest or deacon cannot be with them to assist. Priests are reminded of the obligation to offer Mass for the intentions of those who have made an offering for the Mass. We take to heart the admonition of Saint Paul: “Rejoice in hope, endure in affliction, persevere in prayer.” (Romans 12:12). This would be a time to encourage families to pray the Rosary at home, and to make the grace before meals a time for fathers and mothers, and all families, to center their homes on prayer and reliance upon God’s mercy.

Suspension of Welcome Home to Healing Confessions, Lenten Penance Services

The Welcome Home to Healing Initiative of Monday night confessions is suspended. Any sched-uled Penance Services or Penitential Liturgies are suspended. Any gatherings of the faithful for private devotions such as the Stations of the Cross are also suspended. Our churches are to remain open to the faithful for private prayer. Please note that praying in large clusters or groups of people is prohibited. You must observe the government curfews.

Adoration and Private Prayer

Parishes are encouraged to expose the Blessed Sacrament for at least three hours each day so that the faithful may come and pray and unite themselves in spiritual communion with the Lord. The hours for Exposition and Adoration should be posted. Priests should administer the Sacrament of Penance or the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick to the Christian faithful who legitimately re-quest those sacraments.

Suspension of the Sacrament of Confirmation (Not applicable at Annunciation)

The celebration of the Sacrament of Confirmation is hereby suspended in the Diocese of Paterson. Confir-mation retreats should be deferred. As developments continue to unfold, we will assess the situation. When it is prudent, we will make the necessary arrangements for the celebration of the Sacrament.

First Penance and First Holy Communion (Not applicable at Annunciation)

Since the celebrations of First Penance and First Holy Communion bring together large groups of people, both celebrations are to be deferred in all parishes until further notice.

Baptisms, Weddings, and Funerals (Not applicable at Annunciation)

The celebration of baptisms, weddings, and funerals is left to the discretion of the local pastor. The pastor must take into account the ongoing guidance from civil authorities regarding the acceptable size of crowds in public spaces. Every effort to guide couples with pastoral sensitivity must be made. Priests must always be attentive to the grieving and pray for God’s mercy upon the departed. Should questions arise, please contact the Office of the Vicar General.

Holy Week and the Sacred Triduum

Any decision in terms of Holy Week, the Chrism Mass, the Sacred Triduum and Easter will be made as we monitor the situation. Parishes will be advised in due time. Thank you for your cooperation and all necessary steps you take in order to minimize the spread of the coronavirus. We pray for the healing gifts of the Holy spirit to descend upon all people during this critical peri-od. In this time of trial, we depend on the mercy and goodness of God to protect us. Therefore, I urge all to join in fervent prayer, especially by praying the rosary. Through the intercession of our Blessed Mother, may the Lord, in his mercy, deliver us from this present danger. All to the contrary notwithstanding Given at the Chancery of the Diocese of Paterson, this 16th day of March, 2020. Arthur J. Serratelli Bishop of

Sister Joan Daniel Healy, S.C.C.

Lent Sta ons of the Cross Va can II strongly endorsed the use of devo ons as part of Catholic spirituality, but it also called for their renewal, to har-monize them with the sacred liturgy (see SC 13). The liturgy of Lent focuses on the passion and death of the Lord only near the end of the season, especially with the proclama on of the Passion on Palm (Passion) Sunday and again on Good Friday. The weekday readings between the Fi h Sunday of Lent and Palm Sunday also point toward the coming Passion, so that might also be an appropriate me to pray the Sta ons. The earlier weeks of Lent, however, focus much more on Bap sm and covenant than on the Passion. When we do pray the Sta ons of the Cross, we can also con-nect them with the bap smal character of Lent if we place the sta ons themselves in the context of the whole paschal mys-tery. In Bap sm we are plunged into the mystery of Christ’s death and resurrec on, and our bap smal commitment in-cludes a willingness to give our life for others as Jesus did. Recalling his passion and death can remind us that we, too, may be called to suffer in order to be faithful to the call of God.

To be con nued

Prayer of Pope Francis for Protection and Help O Mary, you always shine on our path as a sign of salvation and of hope. We entrust ourselves to you, Health of the Sick, who at the cross took part in Jesus’ pain, keeping your faith firm. You…know what we need, and we are sure you will provide so that, as in Cana of Galilee, we may return to joy and to feasting after this time of trial. Help us, Mother of Divine Love, to conform to the will of the Father and to do as we are told by Jesus, who has taken upon himself our sufferings and carried our sorrows to lead us, through the cross, to the joy of the resurrection. Amen.

Under your protection, we seek refuge, Holy Mother of God. Do not disdain the entreaties of those of us who are in trial, but deliver us from every danger, O glorious and blessed Virgin.

We ask for your continued support of our parish as we go through this extraordinary

situation in our parish and our Diocese
