May Jesus Christ, the giver of life, faith, and hope, be with you!
Three points this week:
1) Our country, and world, continue to hold out with faith and hope that this Coronavirus pandemic comes to a quick end. While each day presents to us the reality of the severity of this virus, we must remain steadfast in prayer that God's mercy and love will shower upon us. Our response to this pandemic is to pray harder, especially the rosary; don't panic; and to continue to wash your hands and abide with the directives given by the CDC and the government. We WILL get through this.
2) Our Lenten season came to an abrupt ending. Perhaps this pandemic is our Lenten experience. This pandemic forced us to deepened our prayer life and focused on Jesus Christ even more. Lent comes to an end next week. May the remaining days of Lent continue to draw our attention on Jesus Christ, begging Him to bring relief to our country, world, and minds.
3) The last two weeks we heard in our Gospel how Jesus Christ offered us the gifts of water to quench our thirst for him, light to draw us closer to him. Today he offers us new life in him. As we approach Holy Week and Easter. May the Holy Spirit open our minds and hearts so that we may experience a sense of newness in Jesus Christ.
Finally, please assured that you are remembered in our prayers and thoughts. Together with Fr. Hand, Fr. Rene, Fr. Fisher, Deacon Nightengale and Deacon Whillougby, we pray for you especially during these trying times. We look forward to uniting with you around the Word of God and the Eucharist at Mass.
Peace and blessings, Msgr. Britto
