DAILY MASS

During these difficult times, when attending Mass in person is not possible, we offer three different resources to hear and watch daily Mass.

 

LENTEN REFLECTION for MARCH 29

It is hard to believe that we are already near the end of Lent.  Things have changed so much, so fast.  Schools are closed, stores are shut.  We all know people who have to work from home or who have no more work.  Even our church is closed.  When will all this end!

Maybe the reading for this 5th Sunday of Lent can help us.  Ezekiel was discouraged.  He had lost his temple, his freedom, his homeland.  Like us, he asked himself how this could happen.  Where is the Lord, is there a future for us?  But he experiences that the Lord is present among his community and the Lord has opened up the future for them.  He doesn’t give up and he brings hope to his people.

In the Gospel, Martha and Mary are also in darkness.  Their brother has just died.  Jesus, their friend, does not even seem concerned.  He takes two days to come to them.  They felt betrayed, abandoned.  But he did come and we know what did happen.  

Like many of you, I am quite worried with all that is happening.  When will it all come back to normal?  On the 27th I will celebrate, alone, my 45th anniversary of ordination.  We have been told that there will be no Holy Week, no Easter.

But I feel deep down that the Lord is present in these times of darkness and there is hope for the future.  What helps me a lot, is to continue to pray for all of you, to try to help as much as I can, to keep in touch with loved ones.  Also, I am discovering all the religious material on the internet and the daily masses on TV.

As a community of faith we must not give up, we must not lose hope.  We must take care of one another and look forward to the day when we can come together to thank the Lord for all that He will have done for us during this terrible crisis.
