I know that many of you enjoy the Sunday Plus articles, so I am going to attach them to this email. I will also attach another version of the Sunday bulletin for those who wish to read a bit more. Finally, there is also an activity page for the children. All based on this Sunday’s Mass.
Today is the feast of St. Joseph. It is also Father’s Day in Spain. This year will be one for the history books.
I hope you are holding up well. I have not heard anyone from OLM or San Dámaso who has been infected but as the numbers grow, I realize that there will certainly be some cases. Let us pray for those who are ill, especially the elderly and at-risk persons.
This is a very unique time in our lives, if we use it wisely and spiritually, we will become better souls. All we need do is open our hearts to God.
Please know that anyone who says that God sent this virus does not know God. It is a result of human frailty and sin. It is up to us to transform this tragedy by our love and prayers.
Here is a funny showing how stubborn we can be at times. We must never forget to smile.
You are in my prayers,
Four members of the clergy had a theological argument, with the three male ministers siding against the female minister. The woman prayed, “Lord, I know I’m right. Please send us a divine sign to prove it.” A big storm cloud materialized and there was a clap of thunder. “See,” said the woman. “It’s a sign from above.” The three clergymen disagreed, saying thunder is a common phenomenon.
“Dear Lord,” the woman prayed, “I need a bigger sign.” This time, a bolt of lightning slammed into a tree. “See! I told you I was right,” the woman said. But the men insisted nothing had happened that couldn’t be explained by natural causes.
“Help me, Lord,” the woman implored. And a deep voice came from the heavens: “SSSHHHEEE’S RRRIIIGGGHHHTTT!”
The woman turned to the three clergymen and asked, “Well?”
“So, okay,” they said. “Now it’s three against two.”
