Laetare Sunday 2020

Those of us unable to attend Mass or receive Holy Communion this unusual Laetare Sunday may need to dig pretty deeply to find any meaning in this experience of desolation.

In many ways, today is like Good Friday–except that on Good Friday we can still participate in the mysteries by receiving Communion.

With a great deal of help I have come up with the following provisional meaning for myself. And as so often, my best teacher is St. Therese of Lisieux.

Lettre pastorale de Mgr Rodembourg – AECQ

Merci aux Évêques du Québec pour ce message pastoral, signé par Mgr Christian Rodembourg, président de l’AECQ, Évêque de Saint Hyacinthe. Interpellations fortes, à partager!

“En communion avec mes frères évêques du Québec, je vous invite à vivre ce « temps de désert » enraciné dans le silence du samedi saint, ce jour où l’Église ne célèbre aucun sacrement. Elle éprouve alors l’absence de son Seigneur, comme les disciples l’ont éprouvé au tombeau. Mais cette absence est illuminée par l’Espérance que la Vie est plus forte que la mort !”

Voici le message :

Staying In this Weekend

(My desk: clutter/knickknacks/curios and all.)

The COVID-19 pandemic didn’t affect my weekly routine until last Tuesday. That’s when Bishop Kettler announced that public Masses in the diocese are suspended until April 13.

The St. Faustina Adoration chapel here in Sauk Centre closed the next day. The good news there is that our Perpetual Adoration schedule hasn’t changed.
