Therefore, whoever breaks one of these commandments and teaches others to do so will be called least in the Kingdom of heaven. But whoever obeys and teaches these commandments will be called greatest in the Kingdom of heaven.
These are the concluding words of our Gospel for today’s Mass. They are a sober reminder from Our Lord of our opportunity and responsibility to pass on Jesus’ teachings clearly and fully. Which leads me to our discussion for today.
If you were to ask most Catholics whose feast day falls on March 17th, they would answer St. Patrick – all Irish would!
If you were to ask most Catholics whose feast day falls on March 19th, they would hopefully answer St. Joseph – any Italian would!
But, how about March 18th?
IMPORTANT: As of Thursday, March 19th, we are required to close the parish office to the general public who walk in. Please click here for staff phone and email contact information.
We have several options for making a Spiritual Communion. You can find them all by clicking on “continue reading”, below. Also, you can check out our previous blog with some thoughts from Fr. John Zuhlsdorf (a.k.a. Fr. Z) on Making a Spiritual Communion.
Dear HT Parishioners,
God is good, all the time.
When I was assigned at a previous parish, I lived with an African priest from Uganda who used to say the above phrase a good amount. It is true!
Our Lord is the all merciful, all loving God. The Father Who loves each of us as a son or daughter. The Son Who Died on a Cross for each of us, such is our great dignity. The Holy Spirit Who continually grants us His grace and strength in good times and in bad. This is our God.
Adoration has been moved to the main church, however we are sadly limited to having no more than 10 people at any one time.
To help organize this a little bit, we are asking parishioners to use this form to sign up for a time slot at the most popular hours between noon and 8:00p each day.
We’ll try this and see how it works. Thank you for your patience and understanding! Our Lady of Sorrows, ora pro nobis!
Fr. John Zuhlsdorf (a.k.a. Fr. Z) runs one of the most popular Catholic blogs and as dioceses began contemplating suspending access to Mass by the faithful posted information on various ways to make a spiritual communion and why it is important.
