Catholic Kids Homilies

Catholic Kids Media is an effort to evangelize the culture, providing quality Catholic programming for kids that does not water down Catholicism. We develop resources for parents and teachers to instruct children in the Faith and practices of prayer. These videos tackle tough questions such as “What is the Eucharist?” and “What is the Trinity?” in order to help kids understand and love the strange and wonderful thing that is Catholicism, so that they might live Christ-centered lives.

In A Message To Americans, Pope Francis Says Getting Vaccinated Is ‘An Act Of Love’

Pope Francis is adding his voice to a campaign to overcome vaccine skepticism, issuing a public service announcement insisting that vaccines are safe, effective and an “act of love.”

The video message released Wednesday is aimed at a global audience but directed particularly at the Americas. It features six cardinals and archbishops from North, Central and South America as well as the Argentine-born pope. It was produced by the Vatican and the Ad Council, which has produced a series of pro-vaccine ads in a bid to get more people vaccinated.

In his comments, Francis said: “Being vaccinated with vaccines authorized by the competent authorities is an act of love. And contributing to ensure the majority of people are vaccinated is an act of love.”

He added: “Vaccination is a simple but profound way of promoting the common good and caring for each other, especially the most vulnerable.”

Francis had emphasized at the start of the pandemic the need to ensure equal access to the vaccine, especially for the poor. But faced with increasing skepticism about vaccines especially among religious conservatives, the Vatican has vowed an all-out effort to overcome hesitancy and encourage widespread vaccination.

The Vatican has declared that it is morally acceptable for Catholics to receive COVID-19 vaccines, including those based on research that used cells derived from aborted fetuses.

RITE of Christian Initiation of adults

RCIA: An Invitation to Quench Our Deepest Longing 

The human heart seems ultimately to manifest itself in the desire to be loved and to love in return. Until then, as St. Augustine said, our hearts are restless until they rest in God who is Love.  As Catholic Christians, we are privileged to share God’s love through Mass, the sacraments and how we live our life. 

Do you know someone thirsting for God?  Do you know someone not baptized or baptized in a different Christian tradition thirsting to know what it means to be Catholic?  Do you know someone already Catholic but who has not yet received Confirmation or the Eucharist?  They may be thirsting, too! 

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is a place to ask questions and seek understanding about our Catholic faith. We would love for you to invite anyone you know who thirsts for the God who loves them.   For more information, please contact Ann Lynch or call the parish office.
