TUESDAY MUSINGS 012120

Tomorrow is a day of prayer for the legal protection of the unborn children in the United States due to Roe V Wade that legalized abortion across the country on January 22, 1973. Tonight, we start and join the 9- day novena for life.

This Sunday, the third Sunday in Ordinary Time has been designated as the Sunday of the Word of God by the Holy Father Francis on September 30, 2019, the 1600 death anniversary of St. Jerome. Here's the link of the Apostolic Letter Aperuit Illis instituting the Sunday of the Word of God. Noticeably, the date coincides with the week of prayer for Christian Unity in which the Holy Father mentioned that the celebration itself has an ecumenical value and (interfaith as well - my addition). That means, the study of the sacred scriptures brings unity (and not division) to the people of God. He also said that the sacred writings/the divine page belongs to the people. It's the people's book. I can go on and on but I would much rather have you click on the link provided and enjoy the 8-page letter over a cup of coffee for your morning prayer. 

As always, we offer prayers for the migrants and refugees, those in harm's way, the homebound, speedy recovery for the sick, hope for the terminally ill and the dying including those who offered mass intentions. 

We pray for the eternal repose of the souls of the parishioners who recently passed away and offer condolences, sympathy and consolation to the grieving families, relatives and friends. Rest assured, they are included in the prayers of the community. 

Seferino Valeras, Jesus Francisco Limon, Irma Anaya Perez, Jessie Salazar, Emilio Smith 

Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord and let perpetual light shine upon them. May they rest in peace. May their souls and the souls of all the faithful departed through the mercy of God rest in peace. Amen.
