“There is nothing so great as the Eucharist. If God had something more precious, He would have given it to us.” ~ St. Jean Vianney
There is no greater gift than the gift Christ gave the world – himself. A sacrifice that has freed us from the bonds of sin and death, and a sacrifice that is truly present during the Holy and Divine Liturgy.
But the devil is at work when the Holy Sacrifice becomes routine, and Sunday Mass becomes just another item on our weekly to-do list.
As we prepare for Pentecost and the reinstatement of the obligation to attend Mass, let us reflect on our sacrifices this past Lent, and throughout this pandemic, and ask the Holy Spirit to ignite and guide a renewal of faith in our Archdiocese. You are also invited to join our bishops and the archdiocesan community in a 7-week prayer series in preparation for Pentecost.

“Do you realize that Jesus is there in the tabernacle expressly for you – for you alone? He burns with the desire to come into your heart…don’t listen to the demon, laugh at him, and go without fear to receive the Jesus of peace and love…” – St. Therese of Lisieux
