That’s it. That is really my message this week.
But can I ask each of you to pray 30 minutes this week? Church law allows popes and bishops to declare days of fasting/penance for specific intentions. Likewise, pastors can for their parish.
I am asking you to pray for our parish school, Holy Cross Academy. Our staff, and teachers, students, and families have been working all summer to try to find the best way to safely educate our parish children amidst all of the anxiety and fear of the pandemic. This week we enter the homestretch before our opening on August 26th. Could you pray for us?
I believe in the power of prayer. Prayer is the lifeblood of the faith and the soul of every good work in our parish. That is why I am asking every parishioner to pray for this week. Will you give 30 minutes for a rosary or adoration or scripture or all of these? You may pray in your home, on your walk, in church, or wherever you can truly set aside the time to give undivided attention to Jesus. Thank you.
Pax et bonum,
Fr. John Mosimann
