Live Stream Masses HERE
Next weekend we would be celebrating First Communions, if it were not for Corona-Apocalypse. Please pray for the children who are preparing to receive our Lord, and pray for their families who are bearing the primary responsibility of that preparation now, as we wait for the green-light to return to public Masses and Communions!
Additionally, in May we have had a simple May Crowning, where children of all ages are invited to bring a flower to Our Lady. Since we can’t yet be together in the church, I encourage you to place flowers before a statue or image of Our Lady. And as you do so, pray for our return to Holy Mass!
May Crownings remind me of some husbands talking about buying flowers for their wives. The consensus was that it was a total win to just buy them flowers ‘for no apparent reason.’ And they all agreed that you never, never but the cheapest arrangement at the store. Ever. Flowers also make a beautiful offering to the Lord! When we give good and beautiful things to the Lord, we do so in recognition of the truth that He has given us everything good: Himself. The flower that Jesus most wants is our love, but how fitting as well that plants of the earth offer up the beauty of their lives in adornment to glorify the Lord.
pax et bonum,
Fr. John Mosimann
