Vatican News

Vatican News is the news portal of the Holy See. Surpassing the concept of being a simple digital platform, Vatican News seeks to respond and, in a certain sense, to anticipate the continual changes taking place in communication, with the objective of “communicating the Gospel of mercy to all people” in various cultures. It communicates and interacts through audio, video, text and images on a multi-lingual, multi-culture, multi-channel, multi-media and multi-device plain.

  • Pope Francis: increase number of women in Commission as they add “flavor” to theology. During the audience, the Pope encouraged the Commission to face today’s issues guided by three principles: creative faithfulness to Tradition, prudence in action, and cooperation.
  • Pope Francis explains difference between joy that is fleeting and Christian joy. The Pope continues with his catechesis on discernment and he explains what “spiritual consolation” is.
  • Pope Francis on the World Cup in Qatar: “May it favor fraternity”. At the end of his General Audience, Pope Francis expressed his hope that the World Cup would be a first step to a more fraternal coexistence.

 

The Pope Video

We pray for children who are suffering, especially those who are homeless, orphans, and victims of war; may they be guaranteed access to education and the opportunity to experience family affection.

Pope Francis – November 2022

There are still millions of boys and girls who suffer and live in conditions very similar to slavery.They aren’t numbers: they are human beings with names, with a face of their own, with an identity that God has given them.
Too often, we forget our responsibility and we close our eyes to the exploitation of these children who don’t have a right to play, to study, to dream. They don’t even enjoy the warmth of a family.
Each marginalized child, abandoned by his or her family, without schooling, without healthcare, is a cry! A cry that rises up to God and shames the system that we adults have built.
An abandoned child is our fault.
We can no longer allow them to feel alone and abandoned —they are entitled to an education and to feel the love of a family so they know that God does not forget them.
Let us pray for children who are suffering, especially for those who are homeless, orphans, and victims of war. May they be guaranteed access to education and may they have the opportunity to experience family affection.

The Pope Video is a global initiative of the Pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network (Apostleship of Prayer), a Vatican’s Official Institution, that spread the Holy Father’s monthly prayer intentions related to the challenges facing humanity and the mission of the Church. Every month we accompany Pope Francis in his prayer requests. We invite you to join. Visit www.thepopevideo.org to learn how.

Scam alert!

Recently, some parishioners have reported receiving requests for gift cards from Fr. Bernard or Fr. Rowell or Bishop Vasa. This type of thing is always a scam. Priests would not request gift cards from parishioners, let alone indirectly through email.They would ask directly for volunteer work. Always disregard this type of indirect request, especially for money or gift cards from priests as being a scam.

RCIA News

 

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 lives. 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. Weekly “no strings” inquiry gatherings are on Tuesdays at 7 p.m. in the back classroom of Sacred Heart Church. We would love for you to invite /accompany anyone you know whose heart is restless for the God who loves them. For more information, please contact Ann Lynch (443-6741) or call the rectory office at 707-443-8429.

 

Rosary Group on Tuesdays

The Sacred Heart Rosary group invites you to join them on Tuesdays at 11:30 at Sacred Heart Church in the chapel.  We look forward seeing you there.
