Missionaries of the Precious Blood
Third Sunday of Lent
Pope Francis commissioned hundreds of “Missionaries of Mercy”
at Saint Peter’s Basilica in Rome.
In his Bull announcing the Jubilee Year of Mercy, the Holy Father said
the Missionaries of Mercy “would be a sign of the Church’s maternal
solicitude for the People of God, enabling them to enter the profound
richness of this mystery so fundamental to the faith.” Priests chosen to
be Missionaries of Mercy have also been given the authority to pardon
“even those sins reserved to the Holy See.” Such as
Profaning the Eucharistic species by taking away or keeping
them for a sacrilegious purpose;
Use of physical force against the Roman Pontiff;
Absolution of an accomplice in a sin against sixth
Commandment of Decalogue
A direct violation against the sacramental seal by a confessor.
Above all, the Pope said, they will be “living signs of the Father’s
readiness to welcome those in search of his pardon.”
Pope Francis said the day’s readings present two invitations: First, to be
reconciled to God. In order to do so, he said, we must first recognize
that we are in need of mercy: “This is the first step in the Christian
journey; it comes in through the open door that is Christ, where He
Himself awaits us, the Savior, and He offers us a new and joyful life.”
The Pope noted a number of obstacles that “close the doors of our
hearts” and make reconciliation with God difficult. The Missionaries of
Mercy, he said, have a mandate “to be signs and instruments of the
forgiveness of God,” called to help their brothers and sisters to “open the
doors of their heart, overcome shame, and not flee from the light.”
During Lent, Christ calls us to live out our acts of prayer, charity, and
penance “with coherence and authenticity, overcoming hypocrisy.”
We congratulate our Pastor Fr. Jay as he is one of the two priests of our
Diocese appointed by the Holy Father as Papal Missionaries of Mercy.

Bishops Appeal
If you have not yet made a gift to the
Bishop’s Appeal, I encourage your to do
so today or as soon as possible. Pledge
envelopes are available at the back of
the church. Please fill out your commitment and drop it in the offertory today or
bring it to the parish office. Thank you in
advance for your help in making this
year’s Bishop’s Appeal a success.
Can you consider a gift of $15, $20 or
$30 each month for the rest of this year?
That amount will equal a pledge of $150,
$200 or $300. This year, our overall
parish goal is $42,958, same last from
2014. I know with your response, we will
have done our part as a parish family
here in the Diocese of Oakland and I
sincerely thank you, Fr. Jay.
