A big thank you to all of you who are using our online giving option during this time in which we cannot open our doors for Sunday Mass.  For those of you unable to do so I ask that we continue to unite together in prayer that we will soon be able to gather again for the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.  I recommend using the Memorare and the Prayer to St. Michael.  If you need anything, please call the office during office hours or the priests on their phones at all other times.

The Church or the Lourdes Shrine will be OPEN for private prayer Monday-Friday from 7:00 AM - 12:00 noon.  

On the warmer days it will likely be the Lourdes Shrine that will be open.

Prayer during the Corona virus threat

The Memorare

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thine intercession was left unaided.

Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my mother; to thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me.


An Act of Spiritual Communion

My Jesus, I believe that Thou art present in the Blessed Sacrament.

I love Thee above all things, and I desire Thee in my soul.

Since I cannot now receive Thee sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. As though Thou wert already there, I embrace Thee and unite myself wholly to Thee; permit not that I should ever be separated from Thee.

Reflection for 2 August

Reflection for 2 August

18th Sunday in Ordinary time

Reflection by Fr. Jose G. Herrera

The Gospel of today recalls the feeding of the 5000 men and an equal if not greater number of women and children fed as well.  They were in a desolate and deserted place and it was getting dark.  The disciples want to send the crowds away empty handed, but Jesus tells them: “you feed them.” Only five loaves and two fish to feed well over 10,000!  It must have seemed such insurmountable odds! How could they possible satisfy the hunger of so many with what seemed to be so little?  I think of our own day!  So much suffering and so much hunger and the world seems to be getting darker and desolate. What are we to do?  Jesus gives us the answer: “You feed them.”  We know that the miraculous feeding was more than about bread, it was about the Bread of Life, about the Sacraments, about Jesus himself.  Five loaves and two fish equal seven!  Seven is the number of Sacraments in the Church. Jesus never promised that there would not be dark days.  In fact, he warned the disciples that they would indeed suffer but that they should not lose heart.  And from the Cross, through the wound on his side he gave us the gift of the Sacraments. The answer is not more government or less government, more or less social programs, NGOs, movements.  The answer that we need more God in our life. Psalm 146 says: “Put not your trust in princes, in mere mortals powerless to save… Happy are those whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the Lord, their God.    When as a nation we again put God first, as Jesus tells, “all these things shall be added unto you.” (Matthew 6:33) Dare we trust in God or is it just a saying printed on our coin?


Reflexión para el 2 de agosto 2020

18o Domingo en tiempo ordinario

Reflexiónpor el P.JoséG.Herrera

El Evangelio de hoy recuerda la alimentación de los 5000 hombres y un igual, si no mayor, número de mujeres y niños alimentados también. Estaban en un lugar desolado y árido y ya estaba oscureciendo. Los discípulos quieren enviar a las multitudes con las manos vacías, pero Jesús les dice: "Ustedes dénles de comer." ¡Sólo cinco panes y dos peces para alimentar a más de 10.000 personas. Debe haber parecido una imposibilidad! ¿Cómo podrían satisfacer el hambre de tantos con lo que parecía ser tan poco? ¡Pienso en nuestro propio día! Tanto sufrimiento y tanto hambre y el mundo parece estar oscureciendo y desolando. ¿Qué podemos hacer? Jesús nos da la respuesta: "Ustedes dénles de comer." Sabemos que la alimentación milagrosa era más que un asunto de pan, ya que se trataba del Pan de Vida, de los Sacramentos, de Jesús mismo. ¡Cinco panes y dos peces suman siete! Siete es el número de Sacramentos en la Iglesia. Jesús nunca prometió que no habría días oscuros. De hecho, advirtió a los discípulos que efectivamente sufrirían, pero que no debían perder la esperanza. Y desde la Cruz, a través de la herida de su lado nos dio el don de los Sacramentos. La respuesta no es más gobierno o menos gobierno, más o menos programas sociales, ONG, movimientos. La respuesta es que necesitamos más Dios en nuestra vida. El Salmo 146 dice: "No confíes en los príncipes, en los simples mortales impotentes para salvar... Felices son aquellos cuya ayuda es el Dios de Jacob, cuya esperanza está en el Señor, su Dios.” Cuando como nación volvemos a poner a Dios en primer lugar, como Jesús dice, "todas estas cosas se os agregarán." (Mateo 6:33) ¿Nos atrevemos a confiar en Dios o es sólo un dicho impreso en nuestra moneda?
