A Message from Fr. Walter

THIRTEENTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME

 Mark holds up both Jairus and the unnamed woman in today’s Gospel as models of faith. The message of the two healings is clear: “Do not be afraid: just have faith.” The chronically ill woman is so convinced that Jesus not only can help her but will help her that she fights her way through the pushing and shoving crowds just to touch the cloak of Jesus. She realizes not only the power of Jesus to heal her but the depth of his love and compassion to want to heal her. Her faith is rewarded. Jairus was a man of considerable authority and stature in the Jewish community. Yet, for the sake of his daughter, he puts aside his pride and his instinctive distrust of this itinerant rabbi to become a “beggar” for her before Jesus. Despite the ridicule of the mourners and the depth of his despair, Jesus is Jairus’ hope. In Mark’s narrative, the raising of Jairus’ daughter anticipates Jesus’ resurrection. The love and mercy of God transcend death to reach into our own time and place.

Eucharistic Adoration

Every Wednesday, from 7AM-6PM 

O Come Let Us Adore Him!!

The Catechism quotes Pope John Paul II: "The Church and the world have a great need for Eucharistic worship. Jesus awaits us in this sacrament of love. Let us not refuse the time to go to meet him in adoration, in contemplation full of faith, and open to making amends for the serious offenses and crimes of the world. Let our adoration never cease." (CCC, 1380)

Consider signing up for an hour to pray

before the Blessed Sacrament. 

Adorers are always welcome to stop in and spend time with our Lord.

Sunday Obligation

The obligation to attend Holy Mass on the Lord’s Day is a sacred one. Anyone who is frail or at risk due to advanced age or medical conditions is always excused from this obligation.

However, those who are healthy and not at great risk, the presumption of the faithful should be that, unless they are at an enhanced risk, sick, or caring for others who are at risk or sick, are obligated to attend Sunday Mass.
