One of my favorite websites to spend time on is the USCCB’s website. I have access to all of the daily mass readings, the Bible, the GIRM (General Instructions for the Roman Missal) – which I am reading now, daily videos reflecting on the Gospel of the Day and much more. Today I am going to post the video reflection of the day to give you an idea of what is available to you on this site. During this time of “pandemic” you may find you have more time on your hands and looking to fill it with something – take some time looking at this website.
I hope you have been following the daily Masses and reflecting on the readings for the day. We read this week about the first martyr of the Church – Stephen. Today we read about Phillip and his works and Friday – let’s just say Saul is about to get knocked of his a_ _ – literally. Again, if you’re looking to follow a daily Mass, you can follow every weekday at 8 AM, 12 PM and 5:30 PM with a Holy Hour at 3 PM. Weekend Masses follow the weekend schedule for Sunday Masses – 4:30 PM on Saturday; 7:30, 9:30 and 11:30 AM on Sunday morning. Just go to Instagram and search for stmmchurchmass.
Do something great for our Lord today – stay holy. Stay positive. Stay informed. Stay in touch with His Word and reflect on the readings for the day. I’m praying for all of you that during this stressful time that you are able to grow closer to God and His Son through the strength and wisdom of the Holy Spirit. Please pray for me in return.
God’s will, not mine, be done.
Be not afraid; just have faith.
Jesus, I trust in You.
He must increase; I must decrease.
Lord, if You wish, You can make me clean.
But you man of God chose righteousness, devotion, faith, love, patience and gentleness. Compete well for the faith.
Eternal God, in Whom mercy is endless and the treasury of compassion – inexhaustible, look kindly upon us and increase Your mercy in us so that in difficult moments we may not despair nor become despondent but with great confidence, submit ourselves to Your holy will which is Love and Mercy itself.
