Easter Basket Food Blessing
When : Holy Saturday
Where: either behind the church in the prayer Garden, or
in the Blessed Mother prayer chapel in side if bad weather.
Time: 2.00 pm
Bring your basket with the food you and your family will have
on Easter Sunday Morning.
Prayer of Pope Francis for the Jubilee
Lord Jesus Christ,
you have taught us to be merciful like the heavenly Father,
and have told us that whoever sees you sees Him.
Show us your face and we will be saved.
Your loving gaze freed Zacchaeus and Matthew from being
enslaved by money; the adulteress and Magdalene from seeking
happiness only in created things; made Peter weep after his
betrayal, and assured Paradise to the repentant thief.
Let us hear, as if addressed to each one of us, the words that you
spoke to the Samaritan woman: “If you knew the gift of God!”
You are the visible face of the invisible Father,
of the God who manifests his power above all by forgiveness and
mercy: let the Church be your visible face in the world, its Lord
risen and glorified. You willed that your ministers would also be
clothed in weakness in order that they may feel compassion for
those in ignorance and error: let everyone who approaches them
feel sought after, loved, and forgiven by God.
Send your Spirit and consecrate every one of us with His anointing, so
that the Jubilee of Mercy may be a year of grace from the Lord, and your
Church, with renewed enthusiasm, may bring good news to the poor,
proclaim liberty to captives and the oppressed, and restore sight to the
blind.
We ask this of you, Lord Jesus, through the intercession of Mary,
Mother of Mercy; you who live and reign with the Father and the
Holy Spirit for ever and ever.
Amen.
· Blessing of Palms- You are welcome to bring one single blade palm

· Easter Vigil- Please join us at our Easter Vigil Mass opening with the
blessing of the Paschal Candle and the lighting of the new fire which will
take place at the beginning of Mass, outside the main doors on the Plaza,
by the fountain, where we will gather as a worshipping community. This
will take place prior to entering the Church, and before the Mass begins.

TREASURES FROM OUR TRADITION
Three years ago, as we made the shift in the Eucharistic
Prayer from “Benedict” to “Francis,” we named a “treasure” in
our tradition. From apostolic times, the Church has sent disciples on mission with a mandate to proclaim the gospel. Paul
and Barnabas and Timothy come to mind as men invested with
responsibility for community and mission. First we see bishops, “overseers,” good men appointed by the acclaim of their
people, the center of leadership, of prayer, of word and sacrament. Their territories were small initially, small enough to get
everyone into one room and for the bishop to know everyone’s
name.
In time, men were appointed to function as a council
of advisers, “elders,” or presbyters. That isn’t a comment on
chronological age, rather it indicates the maturity of their
wisdom and faith. Before long, and only when the bishop was
absent, some of these men “stood in” for him to do what bishops usually did: preaching, presiding at Eucharist. The deacons
had a strong and visible role in liturgy and service, especially
in the care of the poor, but were gradually overshadowed by the
new importance of the presbyter. As the Roman Empire first
tottered and then collapsed completely by 476, bishops increasingly became civil servants to maintain order and dispense
justice. Conferences and duties summoned bishops away from
their home posts, and presbyters were entrusted with the sacramental and preaching duties, even though at one time runners
were sent out from the bishop’s Mass to bring fragments of the
host to drop into chalices as a sign of the church’s unity around
its bishop.
