“God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him
might not perish but might have eternal life.
For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world,
but that the world might be saved through him. Whoever believes in him will not be condemned,
but whoever does not believe has already been condemned,
because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.”
From the desk of
Father Flores Now that the reopening of churches has gotten underway, we are slowly getting back to the regular routines of Mass and activities such as Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and regular Confessions schedule. Our Mass schedule has been altered, as you have noticed, for two reasons. The first is to accommodate the social distancing that is being asked of us by the state and our bishop. The second is to consolidate the resources, mainly the work force, that are necessary for the sanitizing requirements that we must do after each Mass. In response to this, we have designated the 8:00 AM Sunday Mass as the one for those more susceptible to contracting some disease; everyone is welcome, but I ask that you wear a mask. The 6:00 PM Sunday Mass has been suspended to enable the consolidation of efforts; the plan is to return the 6:00 PM the first Sunday of July. At this time, the protocols from both the state and the diocese do not continue beyond the end of June, and so we are presuming that we can then return to something closer to what we know when it comes to Mass. The Church has been put into a situation of fasting from the Eucharist for several weeks and thankfully, now we can all return to Mass and to Holy Communion. The Eucharist is certainly the center of our faith, “the source and summit,” as Vatican II called it. It is essential to know that engagement with the Holy Eucharist; that is, having it truly be the center of our faith is more than just receiving the Holy Eucharist, it is as much about being present for the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. The Mass is more than simply communal prayer or a gathering of common believers; it is being present at the Passion, Death and Resurrection of the Lord. When we receive Holy Communion, we are receiving what is made possible only through this Paschal Mystery done once for all and re-presented on the altar. Our spirits should have a longing for this event as much as for receiving Holy Communion, the two must not be separated. This, in large part, is why during the shutdown we could not simply do something like a ‘drive thru’ Communion. We can all be at Mass together again! Come, taste and see the goodness of the Lord.
In Jesus and Mary,

AN ACT OF CHARITY — “8AM MASKS MUST BE WORN” MASS:
Until further notice, our 8am Mass will be a “masks must be worn” Mass. This act of charity and kindness may give those who are concerned about celebrating Mass in person the extra security they need to attend Mass. Please be respectful of this gesture of love and charity.

We begin our new column, “Why Do Catholics….” this week highlighting tidbits of our Catholic faith. We hope you find this information helps deepen your understanding — and beauty — of our Catholic faith.
. . . ask for Intercession of the saints? Patron Saints: Catholics have a long tradition of praying for the intercession of the saints. We can call on any or all of the saints and angels to join us in prayer. Often, we call on patron saints. A patron is a special intercessor with God for a church or locality –cities, states, nations, even continents. A patron can also be a special intercessor for occupations or specific causes. Normally this is done because the saint had something to do with that particular occupation or cause, or because miracles were attributed to the intercession of that saint regarding a particular cause. Here is a brief list of some well known — and not so well known — patrons and their causes: St. Anthony of Padua — lost articles; St. Jude Thaddeus — impossible causes; St. Gerard —pregnant women; St. Peregrine — cancer patients; St. John Vianney — priests; St. Roch — dogs and dog lovers. There’s a patron saint for just about every cause and profession. Some professions and causes have multiple patrons, and many saints are patrons of many causes and locations. An online search will yield lots of results for a list of saints and their pat- ronage. Wherever you are, whatever you do or whatever you’re going through, chances are there’s a saint you can call upon to lift up your cause before the throne of God!

† Be a Blessing † June 7, 2020 Most Holy Trinity
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son…” JOHN 3:16
Is your love conditional? Is there a price others have to pay to receive your love and forgiveness? Are you generous with your time, skills, money and possessions? If you give someone something, do you expect something in return? Do you give your time freely or do you “fit it in” when it’s convenient for you? God desires a personal relationship with us so much that He gave us His Son, unconditionally! Pray for a grateful and generous heart.
