 Archbishop Thomas Rodi Announces Suspension of Masses amid COVID-10 Pandemic

Effective immediately, all Masses and Lenten activities are suspended in all the parishes in the Archdiocese of Mobile as response to the fast spread of the COVID-19.

 

All parishioners are encourage to pray at home with their families and join to the sacrifice of the Mass by making an act of spiritual communion. You are also encourage to participate in the Holy Mass via the internet. Fr. David and Fr. Raul are working on a livestream of non-public Masses we will keep you updated on this.

 

Please pray for all those who are afflicted with this virus and those who are afraid and vulnerable. We also need to pray for all the doctors, nurses, caregivers, and public health and civil authorities working on the treatment of those who are sick and helping contain the outbreak of the COVID-19.

 

We ask that you take time to check-in with another - by phone, e-mail or social media - with families, friends and neighbors, we will get thru this by making sacrifices, and staying close to Christ in prayer.

 

Let’s seek together the maternal intercession of Our Lady of Guadalupe:

Holy Virgin of Guadalupe,

Queen of the Angels and Mother of the Americas.

We fly to you today as your beloved children.

We ask you to intercede for us with your Son,

as you did at the wedding in Cana.

Pray for us, loving Mother,

and gain for our nation and world,

and for all our families and loved ones,

the protection of your holy angels,

that we may be spared the worst of this illness.

For those already afflicted,

we ask you to obtain the grace of healing and deliverance.

Hear the cries of those who are vulnerable and fearful,

wipe away their tears and help them to trust.

In this time of trial and testing,

teach all of us in the Church to love one another and to be patient and kind.

Help us to bring the peace of Jesus to our land and to our hearts.

We come to you with confidence,

knowing that you truly are our compassionate mother,

health of the sick and cause of our joy.

Shelter us under the mantle of your protection,

keep us in the embrace of your arms,

help us always to know the love of your Son, Jesus. Amen.

Gospel Glimpses 

 

Mar 22, 2020   Jn 9:1-41


A Clearer View

     There are no accidents anymore. When a child falls from a tree or a shopper slips in the mall, a chorus of “who’s fault?” rebounds before the injured is up off the ground. Even when the injury is slight, we’re still focused on blame, retribution. Today’s scripture shows us this blame game was just as popular in Jesus’ day. When Jesus heals a blind man, the crowd wants to know who sinned, who caused the blindness. Odd, isn’t it? You’d think their focus would be praising the miraculous healing. Instead, the crowd’s eyes were as blind as the man had been, darkened by blame, blame, blame. And that image hits home for us today. When hard times come along it’s easy to be blinded by anger and resentment. We’re so busy glaring at the source of our troubles, we can’t see God’s mercy pouring down on us. We see the sorrow, and miss the miracle. Take a moment and check your sight this week. If you find your eyes blinded by   anger or blame, ask God to restore your sight. He’s right there waiting with a clearer view for you.

"The family idea is dear to God and to the Church ... I declare that I recognize the value of a family spirit, of a family working in the Church, of a family that with ardor will take these words from our dear Lord’s lips: ‘Going, therefore, teach ye all nations: baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.'"

 

- Fr. Thomas Augustine Judge,  Founder of St. Patrick School and 3rd Pastor of St. Patrick Church


 

 

God so loved the world that he gave his only Son,
so that everyone who believes in him might not perish
but might have eternal life.
For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world,
but that the world might be saved through him.
Whoever believes in him will not be condemned,
but whoever does not believe has already been condemned,
because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God. 

                                

                                                                         JN 3:16-18
