We decided that the “show” must go on. Unless really impeded, there was no reason not to try to celebrate Mass. The Eucharist is a source of blessing for the entire parish whether we be three or three hundred. Today’s second reading captures this, in a sense, when St. Paul says, “if one member is honored, all rejoice together with it”. Twenty-one of us were honored today—on behalf of all, and so all rejoice. How generous and kind is our Lord.
Know that you are in my prayer as we all emerge from Mother Nature’s strong gift to us. Enjoy the down time. Make it quality time. And, do not forget to spend some quiet time with Christ. He awaits us patiently in the silence. You can read the notes from today's sermon: food for thought that may facilitate the quiet time.
Enjoy also the photographs of the church adorned with snow. Let it be a metaphor for how lovingly we are adorned with blessings, blessings which, however, transform us from within.
Christ’s peace and light,
