CHRISTMAS EVE MASS SCHEDULE
Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
The stability of the most important social unit since the beginning of mankind is under grave threat, prompting Pope Francis to call a rare meeting of the world's Catholic bishops to discuss the state of the family. And prior to next fall's Extraordinary Synod of Bishops, the Holy Father is asking for input from the world's Catholics on those issues seen as undermining families.
To that end, the Vatican has issued a "preparatory document" and has asked bishops to make it available to Catholics in their diocese so their input might be reflected in a report due by the end of this year. These reports will then be shared with the bishops who will participate in next year's Synod.
Indeed, the Pope is not conducting a poll on Church teaching. Rather, he wants the chance to communicate directly with and look into the hearts of the world's Catholics to better understand the challenges facing Catholic families, what role the Church plays in their lives, and how the Church can better support them and open them to the fullness and beauty of Church teaching.
DAILY MASS TIME CHANGE: Beginning Thursday, December 5th, daily Mass will be held at 7am in the Chapel.
You cannot be a Christian without Jesus
There is no Christian without Jesus. And Jesus is not present if a “Christian” listens to commands that do not lead to Christ or do not come from Christ. Pope Francis, at mass this morning, Saturday 7 September, at Santa Marta, insisted on the Christocentric nature of our faith. And he warned Christians not to follow revelations, whether public or private, unless they lead to Christ. In the homily this morning the Holy Father continued his reflection from Friday, in which he spoke about Jesus as the spouse of the Church. The gospel passage today (Lk 6:1-5) speaks of Jesus with the pharisees who were criticizing the apostles for having violated the sabbath by picking the heads of grain and eating them.
