Bishop Barron on the Power of the Cross PDF Print E-mail

Pain. It is a feeling that everyone knows. We have all experienced it differently to varying degrees and at different points in our lives. It’s not something you can escape. Why is it that the Church focuses on a man in the most excruciating pain possible?

Bring to mind this image of a man on a cross and let’s reflect on this image with Bishop Barron:

Palm Sunday and Easter Triduum Schedules PDF Print E-mail

All our Masses will be at St. Joachim Chapel (Parish Center).

Those who cannot join us for Palm Sunday and would like to have palms, you can pick up blessed palms at St. Anne Church after the 12:30 PM Mass.     

On Good Friday, April 2, at 12 noon, we will have the Stations of the Cross outside (weather permitting). We request those attending to observe social distancing and we encourage everyone to wear a face mask.  

Remember that on Easter Sunday we will only have two Masses: 8:00 AM and 10:00 AM. Since we cannot still have Holy Water in holy water fonts because of the guidelines, we will have water in small plastic containers blessed during the Easter Vigil. You can pick one at St. Anne Church after the 10:00 AM Mass. 

The Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and Easter Vigil Liturgies, as well as the 8:00 AM Easter Sunday Mass will be live-streamed through our YouTube Channel (St Anne St Patrick) and Facebook page (StAnneStPatrick).

A blessed Easter Triduum to all of you!

Saint Joseph: ‘A Righteous Man’ PDF Print E-mail

.

Our weekly reflections are courtesy of Pflaum Weeklies of Bayard USA - an Assumptionist sponsored ministry.

If someone were writing a description of you, what would be the first word they would choose? Would they describe your appearance? Your job? Your personality? Or would they describe your character?

One of the first things we learn about Saint Joseph is that he was “a righteous man” (Matthew 1:19). Some translations say that he was a “just” man, which essentially means the same thing.

What does being “righteous” or “just” actually mean? Some synonyms include virtuous, upright, decent, worthy, ethical, and principled. Basically, it means that Joseph was what we would call a “good man.” It doesn’t mean that he was without flaws or faults. He might have snored or retold the same stories or even got upset at times. What it does means is that he was a man who could be trusted to keep his word, be honest in his business dealings, and err on the side of kindness.

Since we know so few details about Joseph, the fact that his character is the primary way he is described tells us not only that the writers of the Gospels thought his character mattered, but also that his character was his outstanding characteristic. We have no idea of his age or his appearance, but we know he was a “good man.” To be known for 2,000+ years as a genuinely good person might just be the best description any of us can hope for.

Quotation

Go, then to Joseph, and do all that he shall say to you;
Go to Joseph, and obey him as Jesus and Mary obeyed him;
Go to Joseph, and speak to him as they spoke to him;
Go to Joseph, and consult him as they consulted him;
Go to Joseph, and honor him as they honored him;
Go to Joseph, and be grateful to him as they were grateful to him;Go to Joseph, and love him, as they love him still.

–Saint Alphonsus Liguori

Prayer

Saint Joseph, you know what it is like to live as a good person in trying times. Help us to find our own central core of decency and never compromise our values.

Amen.

BISHOP BARRON ON LOVING AN ENEMY THIS LENT PDF Print E-mail

Forgiveness. It can be such a hard thing to give and to receive. It can be easy to forgive the people we love, the people we are close to. But what about our enemies? That task can seem insurmountable. Then again, so is Christ’s cross. Let’s listen as Bishop Barron unpacks the cross of forgiving your enemy.
