We wish everyone a blessed and safe Memorial Day.

Mass on Memorial Day, Monday, May 25, will be at 9:00 a.m.  The parish office will be closed.

Heavenly Father,

On this Memorial Day, we pray for those who courageously laid down their lives for the cause of freedom.  May the examples of their sacrifice inspire in us the selfless love of Your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ.

Bless the families of our fallen troops, and fill their homes and their lives with Your strength and peace.

In union with people of goodwill of every nation, embolden us to answer the call to work for peace and justice, and thus, seek an end to violence and conflict around the globe. We ask this through Christ our Lord.  Amen.

(Romereports.com) In his weekly general audience, Pope Francis focused on the family. He highlighted the three phrases that should often be said to foster respect: May I? thank you and pardon me.

The three phrases are more than just good manners, explained the Pope, they are a way to renew trust in family life.

Seventh Sunday of Easter

Jesus was the meeting of heaven and earth. His Ascension returned him to God in order to reign as the world's new king, and his orders to the disciples to build his church were to be done with his leadership and assistance. And this is our mission - much like that of the disciples - finding what it is that Christ wants us to do to continue to build his church.

Gospel: John 17:11b-19

(Romereports.com) Pope Francis focused on three words: tribulations, trust, and peace. He said that difficult times will always be part of life.

POPE FRANCIS
"Three words: tribulations, trust and peace. In life, we have to go on the path of tribulation but it is the law of life. But in those moments, rely on the Lord and He will answer with peace. This Lord, who is Father, loves us so much and never disappoints.”

 

From the Vatican: Pope in Santa Marta: Embrace the power of the Holy Spirit

(Romereports.com) Pope Francis talked about the power of the Holy Spirit and why prayer is at the very core of this grace.

POPE FRANCIS
"Without prayer, there is no place for the Holy Spirit. Ask God to send us this gift: ‘Lord, give us the Holy Spirit so that we may discern at all times what we have to do.' This is not always one and the same thing. The message is the same: The Church moves forward, the Church goes ahead with these surprises and with the changes of the Holy Spirit.”
