Vatican News is the news portal of the Holy See.

It communicates and interacts through audio, video, text and images on a multi-lingual, multi-culture, multi-channel, multi-media and multi-device plain.

The Pope Video

Let us pray that the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick grant the Lord’s strength to those who receive it and to their loved ones, and that it may become for everyone an ever more visible sign of compassion and hope.

Pope Francis – JULY 2024

This month, let us pray for the pastoral care of the sick.
The Anointing of the Sick is not a sacrament only for those who are at the point of death. No. It is important that this is clear.
When the priest draws near a person to perform the Anointing of the Sick, it is not necessarily to help them say goodbye to life. Thinking this way means giving up every hope.
It means taking for granted that after the priest the undertaker will arrive.
Let us remember that the Anointing of the Sick is one of the “sacraments of healing,” of “restoration,” that heals the spirit.
And when a person is very ill, it’s advisable to give them the Anointing of the Sick. And when someone is elderly, it’s good that they receive the Anointing of the Sick.
Let us pray that the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick grant the Lord’s strength to those who receive it and to their loved ones, and that it may become for everyone an ever more visible sign of compassion and hope.

Text Scam Returns – Do Not Respond

Another Text Scam supposedly from Fr. Bernard or other priests asking for favors, money, gift cards etc. has been going around.

Please disregard. Do not respond!

 

Sanctuary Etiquette sent by Fr. D’Sa

             

In the spirit of “I will allure her… and speak to her heart. She shall respond… and she shall call me “My Husband” (Hosea 2:16-18), allow the sanctuary to be a place where others and you can be courted and allured by God.

Please…

  • Turn your phones and smart watches completely off before entering.
  • Arrive early and prepare your mind.
  • Enter through the front door.
  • Sit in the center of the pew so others can easily find a seat.
  • If you are late, do not ask someone to move; stand in the back.
  • Please don’t be a distraction: please do not remove or put on clothing; drink, eat, speak, or look around when it is not part of the Mass; add extra words or other distractions to prayers; arrange your hair; etc. Please stay focused so that you and others may be fully receptive.
  • When the final prayer or song from Mass is done, please return the missalettes, check them for order, and remove trash from the pews.
  • Consider dressing, the drive, and the walk to and from the sanctuary as a pilgrimage which is leading to the courtship, and that others may be ruminating on Scripture in their interior space and not necessarily wanting to be social.

    Thank you for your consideration!
    God bless you.
