We continue our journey of faith in this holy Eastertide. This period after Easter is a time to reaffirm our faith in the Good News of the resurrection of the Lord. It climaxes with the feast of Pentecost, the coming of the Holy Spirit. These few weeks are a time of reflection, guided by the Word of God, to put our house in order for the task of Christian life. Due to the current pandemic, people find they have time on their hands. For us as Christians this should appeal to the contemplative aspect of our spiritual lives, our quiet time with God. It is a time to hear that still Divine voice of calm. We have a vital ministry of prayer. We join those housebound by health issues for they are used to long, inactive hours and looking at the same four walls. Their example helps us to turn a setback to an opportunity. Do not let a day pass without starting with some form of a morning offering to God. Give Him your day as it begins, ask for His resources so that you do a good job and nothing important is neglected. As for the resources to always have a reserve of love as the needs arise. Love is at the heart of our Gospel message this Sunday. I hope you find the homily helpful. Also, thank you for your prayers for my brother Joe. He is stable. Please continue to include him in your intentions.
God bless you and protect all your loved ones,
