TUESDAY MUSINGS 4/30

The Acts of the Apostles dominate the Easter Season. The stories on the second week of Easter, recount the impact of their belief in the risen Christ. (Monday). As they prayed, they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and continued to speak  the word of God with boldness. (Tuesday). The community of believers was of one heart and mind, and no one claimed that any of his possessions was his own, but they have everything in common. With great power the Apostles bore witness to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and great favor was accorded them all. (Wednesday, May 1) is the feast of St. Joseph the worker, a day to ponder on the dignity of human labor. ( Thursday) was the memorial of St. Athanasius, Bishop and Doctor, a revered church father instrumental in the development of the Trinity. (Friday) is the feast of Sts. Philip and James, the lesser, whom Jesus said in John 14: 6-14, the father and I are one.  

 

MIGRANT SHELTER HELP

Last Thursday, I went with Sr Lucy, SSND to the migrant shelter at La Sagrada Familia, Agua Prieta. There are over a 100 migrants housed there who will be joining in line to seek asylum outside the port of entry. They are running out of food supplies and utilities and asking us, the Catholic Community of Douglas, for help. The list was posted in last weekend’s bulletin. Monetary donations are welcomed as well. Thank you in advance for your kindness and generosity.

 

PRIEST’S CONVOCATION

I’m at the priest’s convocation. It starts today Tuesday around 4pm and ends Thursday before noon. This year’s speaker is Christopher Hall reflecting on the theme the wonder, the beauty and the majesty of the Trinity according to the Church Fathers.  

As announced in the recently- held convocation, the Catholic Community of Douglas-Pirtleville welcomes back Fr. Marco Basulto as the new Parochial Vicar beginning July 1, 2019. He is no stranger to the community as he was assigned here in the early 2000’s.  

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

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.
