Changes to Daily Mass Schedule in July

06-17-2018Weekly ReflectionRev. Kenneth Brighenti

Dear Parish Family,

I would like to explain some changes that will take place in the month of July in the daily Mass schedule. Father Walter will be taking his vacation and will be gone the entire month of July. That being said it will only leave the parish with one priest, after much discussion and prayer, I have decided to not have the 7:00 am weekday Mass during July. We will only have the 9:00 am daily Mass. The weekend Masses will remain on the same schedule. This change will be effective July 1-July 31. The normal schedule resumes on August 1st. The Spanish 7:30 pm Mass on Wednesday nights will also be cancelled for the month of July.

Prayer of Adoration

I adore you Jesus, true God, and true man, present in the holy Eucharist, kneeling before you and united in spirit with all the faithful on earth and all the saints in heaven. In gratitude for so great a blessing, I love you with all my heart, for you are worthy of all praise and adoration. Lord Jesus Christ, may I never offend you with my lack of love. May your Eucharistic presence refresh me in body and soul. Mary, Mother of the Eucharistic Lord, pray for me and obtain for me a greater love for Jesus. Amen.

God our Father longs to increase our faith in His Son's Eucharistic Presence still here on earth. There are many miracles of the Eucharist in Church history. One such miracle took place in Lanciano, Italy. This town's history is closely related to the crucifixion of Jesus.

In 700 A.D., a Basilian monk was facing a crisis in his vocation because he did not believe in the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist. He continued to celebrate the Mass according to sacred tradition, but a profound doubt was growing within him especially at the moment of Consecration. He was filled with guilt as he raised the host and said the sacred prayers. He often prayed hard to be released from his doubt so his vocation could be saved.
