In this week’s Encountering the Word video, Jeff Cavins reflects on the Gospel for the Sixth Sunday of Easter and challenges us to ask ourselves if we truly love Jesus. The readings are:
Jesus waits for us in this Sacrament of Love
“In the sacred Host, He is present, the true treasure, always waiting for us.
Only by adoring this Presence do we learn how to receive Him properly.”
Additional people to spend one hour of Adoration per week are needed. The recent sign up sheet has many open spaces.
The following times are open:
- Mondays at 2:00 PM;
- Tuesdays at 7:00 AM and 7:00 PM;
- Wednesday at 9:00 AM and 12:00 PM;
- Thursday at 11:00 AM and 1:00 PM
- Fridays at 1:00 PM.
All adoration times are for one hour. It is required that when the Blessed Sacrament is exposed on the altar, at least one person must always be present. Please please prayerfully consider committing an hour to the adoration of our Eucharistic Lord so that all of our scheduled exposition times will be filled. Call the rectory and leave your name, phone number and your selected time of adoration.
Throughout the year names of the sick and the deceased are listed in the bulletins requesting your prayers. At this very special and holy season of the year I respectfully request that you add to your own personal daily prayers for all the sick and the deceased of our parish regardless if you know the person or their names. It can be a simple prayer like: Lord, Bless all those who are sick or deceased from my parish. Amen.
Remember to add to your daily prayers those who care for the sick at home: for those in nursing homes or hospitals: and for those who will be undergoing surgery.
Remember in your daily prayers all those still “recovering” from the loss of a family member or friends but especially all those who have lost someone suddenly.
Men and young men, it’s not too late to make your reservation for our annual retreat to be held the weekend of June 2-4 at St. Joseph’s in the Hills, Malvern.
We urge you to avail yourself of the truly rewarding experience that such a weekend offers.
