MESSAGE FROM FR. RESTI:
This weekend and the next several ones, the Gospel readings are taken from the so called ‘Bread of Life discourse’ in the Gospel of John. They all proclaim Jesus as the Bread of Life who came down from heaven and who said, “whoever comes to me will never be hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty” (John 6:32-35). They reveal solid teachings about the Eucharist, which have enriched our Christian belief in many ways, among them, in the real presence of the Lord in word and sacrament through the years.
We continue to find ways and means to encounter the Lord in our parish sacramental celebrations. Beginning in August, we will have an additional English/Spanish Confession time on a trial basis during Saturdays from 4:00PM to 4:30PM. Fr. Brian and I hope that you will take the opportunity to experience the Lord and His merciful love through the Sacrament of Reconciliation BEFORE the 5:00PM Saturday Vigil mass. We will be evaluating the times for confession in our parish but for now, the usual confession schedule AFTER the Vigil mass will continue. I will be glad to hear your thoughts about this. If for some reason you cannot come during the regular confession schedules, we encourage you our dear parishioners, to call the office and schedule an appointment for confession during the week. Fr. Brian and I are here to serve you and be God’s channel of His peace and forgiveness.
At this time, I would like to inform you that we are contemplating having a longer exposition and adoration of the Blessed Sacrament every 1st Friday of the month. I pray that this will be a welcome opportunity and invitation for all of us to adore the Lord, be in prayer, and feel His divine presence in a special way. Again your input as regards this will be greatly appreciated. After due consultation, I will surely let you know more about this plan in the near future.
Holy and peaceful weekend to all!
