This Week

Announcements from our bulletin of January 17, 2021

Our Mission is to embrace God's Loving Mercy, embracing our diversity as we serve the needs of others.

In both our first reading and the Gospel, we hear how God calls people to serve.

The youth Samuel hears God's voice but does not recognize it at first. But God keeps calling and with Eli's help, Samuel is finally able to hear God's word. The disciples of John the Baptist follow Jesus at his invitation, and bring along Simon Peter. We often come to serve the Lord through the invitation of others. We can offer that same invitation to those who have not yet heard the Gospel message.

When someone you care about hurts you, you can hold on to anger, resentment and thoughts of revenge or embrace forgiveness and move forward.

What are the benefits of forgiving someone?

Letting go of grudges and bitterness can make way for improved health and peace of mind. Forgiveness can lead to:

  • Healthier relationships
  • Improved mental health
  • Less anxiety, stress and hostility
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Fewer symptoms of depression
  • A stronger immune system
  • Improved heart health
  • Improved self-esteem

A Healthy Reminder This Christmas

During Mass, please do not hold hands or exchange the Sign of Peace. While preaching or at the altar the celebrant will not use a face mask, but he and other ministers will when they distribute Holy Communion. (If anyone disagrees about the necessity of wearing a face mask, I would ask that person to wear it anyway out of respect for and charity towards their fellow parishioners.)

If you are sick or have flu like symptoms, stay home. If you are frail because of age or are vulnerable because of an underlying condition, or you are a caretaker or someone who is, it might be reasonable for you to stay home. If you are fearful, stay home.

Sincerely yours in Christ,

Most Reverend Thomas Wenski
Archbishop of Miami

US Catholic Bishops release a new statement further clarifying the Church's position regarding the COVID-19 vaccines that are currently available.

By Lisa Zengarini

As the United States gear up for its largest ever immunisation campaign against COVID-19, the US Bishops have decided to further clarify the Church's position regarding vaccines that have some connection to cell lines originating from aborted foetuses, reminding that since the beginning of the pandemic it has advocated for the development of a vaccine that has no link to abortion.

For all who have contracted coronavirus, we pray for care and healing.

For those who are particularly vulnerable, we pray for safety and protection.

For all who experience fear or anxiety, we pray for peace of mind and spirit.

For affected families who are facing difficult decisions between food on the table or public safety, we pray for policies that recognize their plight.

For those who do not have adequate health insurance, we pray that no family will face financial burdens alone.

For those who are afraid to access care due to immigration status, we pray for recognition of the God-given dignity of all.

For our brothers and sisters around the world, we pray for shared solidarity.

For public officials and decisionmakers, we pray for wisdom and guidance.

Father, during this time may your Church be a sign of hope, comfort and love to all. Grant peace. Grant comfort. Grant healing. Be with us, Lord.

Amen.
